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

Rented two bikes for two hours. Plenty of time to bike all the way around the park with enough time to rest and sight see. Easy check in and check out. Close to Park.

I'm a New Yorker and my friend and I decided to go on a tour with our friends. David was amazing! He works on weekend and we learned so much about Central Park and random movie facts. Highly recommend all tourists and New Yorkers try this. I am definitely returning when my friends visit the city.

We did the Central Park biketour with Stan this week and it was fun. He knows a lot about the park and brings it in a humourous way. We enjoyed it very much. There are some small hills in Central Park, but they can be done easily with the bikes.

We travelled with a large group and took the bike through central park tour. This is a bit misleading as you spend more time walking your bike and standing than actually riding the bike. The tour guide was knowledgeable about the park but our group would have preferred to see more of the park than learn the impacts of Dutch... More
