While not everything about the experience renting from this shop was bad, I don’t think I would rent from them again given the opportunity, nor would I recommend them to anyone. The pros were I was able to rent a bike here through their online process. Also, the shop is easy to locate and is conveniently located close to Central... More

I booked a bike and paid online which was good, and when i get there the man who was working on the till kept me for about an hour. The reason was i didn't make reservation by phone, I understand if it was busy time, thus there was bunch of bikes in the shop. Moreover, his talking with with the... More

You can't beat fall in Central Park, and to get to see it by bike is even more fun. The tour guide was great and provided just enough stops to entertain and share facts about the park. The ride is not strenuous and easy to do at any skill level.

We bought the tour from "must see Central Park" bike tours at 56th street which says it is recommended on trip advisor. Website says helmets were included. None were provided. Staff did not adjust seats or make sure each bike was properly fitted. Folks were making adjustments throughout the tour. Website says you see the whole park and view of... More

I chose these guys because out of the various Groupon deals (there were about 6) these were the closest to the park. I didn't fancy either riding on the streets of NYC or walking for blocks to get to the park. The service was efficient and professional on the pick-up. We didn't reserve any bikes and presented the Groupon print... More

They weren't the friendliest, but I chose this location since I'd purchased a Groupon. They requested I post a review of them since according to the girl at the counter, they don't allow people to ride without a reservation. I didn't figure this would be an issue on a pretty chilly Monday morning with their shop full of bikes. They... More

Book online in advance to save half the price. The bikes were in great condition and well set up and pickup and drop off was very smooth. The place is one block from the entrance to Central Park so there's not far to walk if you don't want to ride on NYC roads. Sunday mornings are very busy on the... More

Like others mentioned, there was a 15-20 minute wait to rent a bike- not sure why only one person was running the counter for a busy sunny fall Friday. I thought about one of their tours but didn't want to be tied down to a specific time so just rented a bike for 2 hours. It was great!! The park... More

We used this company, because we got a three hour rental with our New York Passes, and it was only a block from the park. We got to the store around 11:00 after Sunday brunch, and had about a 15 minute wait in line. I got up to the counter and just as I was signing the rental agreement they... More
