Know More about this tour

This Central Park bicycle tour is the best way to explore the entire park and learn more about its rich history and fabulous sites. The tour will begin from the bike store located adjacent to a dedicated bicycle lane that leads to the main entrance of Central Park. That means absolutely no biking in the crazy New York City traffic. This valuable safety precaution already makes the bicycle tour a favorite one for people all ages and experience levels.

Meet and greet a friendly staff member, who will help pick the perfect bike and provide all the necessary safety equipment and instructions on how to operate the bike. There is a mechanic on staff who will make sure that all safety features are working properly before issuing the bicycle.

With a small group (limited to eight people), head towards Columbus Circle, the main entrance of Central Park. Listen to the tour guide and take the opportunity to chat with him and get to know each other.

Be sure to dress comfortably, as the tour takes approximately two hours and covers the entire 843 acres of Central Park.

The first part of the tour will concentrate on the history, architecture, design, and landscape of the park. Learn about one of the most ambitious architectural undertakings in the history of mankind, as well as what inspired the creators of the park to embark on journey of a lifetime to build Central Park. 

Next, discover some of the most famous sites in New York City. Drop-off the bicycle and take some time to explore them on foot. In addition, see where the rich and famous have their multimillion-dollar condos around Central Park and hear interesting stories from the private, local expert.

  • I enjoyed being outside, riding my bike and having someone who knew the route. I wanted more information, some stories, something added. I did not feel that it was worth the extra money for this guide as he did not add to the bike tour as I thought he would. I would not recommend this tour. You can get a map and do it on your own for half the price if you want to just ride and see the park without any added information.

  • Our guides seemed clueless, could barely be heard or understood. Group members got lost and we wasted our time and money. Horrible experience.

  • Fun trip, but I hurt myself so I was unable to do the Brooklyn Bridge

  • I did this rating already.

  • The best tour is NYC. Loved it.
    The owner was also really helpful. Highly recommended!
