The weather was chilly, but our walk through the park was invigorating. The leaves were changing colors: cheery yellows and vibrant reds rounded out the background of all of my pictures. Took a hike through "The Ramble", a well-worn path through the less visited part of the park. It was hilly, and uneven, not recommended for anyone who has difficulty... More

We learned about this place through the New York City Pass site, but also through Amazon Local. We investigated a bit and decided the voucher with Amazon Local was the best option for a full day rental. The bikes are well maintained, you get a chain, helmet, basket and a Central Park map with the bike rental, and for about... More

We rented bikes for the day. The hiring process was straight forward and the staff were fantastic! We felt very welcomed and confident with the expertise of the staff. There was a young boy who helped us set up (don't remember his name unfortunately) who was very friendly and with lots of great information and suggestions. We were also assisted... More

Tour guide was great: informative, funny, friendly and engaged. But, there's a bit more walking the bike rather than riding the bike than you might expect. Granted, park rules dictate that you cannot ride in certain areas that the tour covers in order to give you a perspective of the history of the park, but you should know this before... More

We rented 5 bikes from here to tour central park, close enough to central park to be convenient. Easy rental and return, we would recommend them.

Joel was our guide through Central Park. He is an outstanding guide of the area through the park. He was able to weave in an amazing amount of history about the park and include info on different movies and scenes that really made the tour interesting. He assisted our elderly parents and young kids with the bikes and checked with... More

Rent early morning on a weekend if you can while the roads within the park are closed. There is one lock per couple and both bikes fit within one lock. The basket seems to be on the "girl bike". Super handy. Staff was terrific. Rent online before you go to save money. Staff was great and incredibly patient with a... More

Took the Central Park Bike Tour a couple of days ago. My family, including my 16 yr old son, enjoyed it thoroughly. Stan was our guide and he was very knowledgeable. I do want to point out that there are a few hills that we went through and so this may not be for everyone or just be prepared for... More

This bike rental place is quite popular among tourists as you can use the New York Pass to get free bike rental and you get an extra hour for free compared to the other bike rental place on the Pass. But honestly, these perks are NOT WORTH IT because this store offers one of the worst customer experiences ever. Also... More
