With the NY Pass we rented a bike to bike the Brooklyn Bridge! They have very good bikes! We had a comfortbike with a large saddle. It was super light and we could easily bike around. With much care they adjusted the size of the bike, so we were comfortable! Biking Brooklyn Bridge is a real top attraction! An absolute... More

Rented a 4-person bike/surrey and explored Governor's Island. The wait in line was long because they ran out. But the employees were nice and explained that right before a ferry leaves, everyone returns with their bikes so the line will speed up again. The surrey was easy to manage and we got into a random race with another group. An... More

We rented the 4 person bike with the surrey on top- it was loads of fun. Only problem was our bell didn't work but we just yelled out to let people know we were coming. We went all over Governors Island and stopped where we wanted to. Would recommend renting to go around.

We went for the guided tour and upon suggestion ended up renting bikes and doing the self guided tour. It was great... Our own pace and stopped when we wanted. Everyone at the shop was super nice, gave great directions and the bike were great! Would highly recommend!

My son and I rented bikes on a recent tour of New York using the New York Pass. Staff were very helpful and pleasant, and the good thing is that you get the bikes for 24 hours, so no worrying about time to get the bikes back same day. You get a good map and a lock. Good tip: if... More

My husband and I hired the bikes in Monterey and the young men their were very helpful. They showed us the bike trail and how long it would take. Also showed other areas to bike if we wished, They were thorough in checking the bikes and going through safety. Very enjoyable afternoon cycling the coast.

My son and I rented from the 38th street location at 12th avenue. Rode on the Hudson River Greenway down around the battery and back. Boy was it gorgeous. The route was tricky at times due to construction but the Blazing Saddles staff had warned us ahead of time. With a reasonable map and reasonable sense (watch where the other... More

William, Tanya & Nekiah gave us some good bikes, showed us how to use them and sent us on an adventure around Manhattan & Brooklyn's bike paths. They closed at 7:30 and we made the most of our long day riding.

The two people working at Pier 78 were a great help-lots of information, very polite and a pleasure to deal with. We biked the Greenway and went all around Central Park. The bikes are a great way to see the city. We always felt safe and the bikeways are well kept.
