Thanks to blazing saddles where we hired our bikes while in New York last week! The rental included bikes, lock, helmet and a map. The bikes were in good condition. A 24 hour bike rental was included with our New York City pass, so we had the bikes from 9.30am till about 4pm. We cycled down the side of the... More

Operating from thier little store at Peir 78 these guys are great. You get a great bike, good advice, a map, lock and helmet. We had a Tandem and two bikes and cycled for hours. You pay when you get back, so only pay for the hours you use. We did the Brooklyn Bridge, stopped at the Ice Cream Factory... More

We rented two bikes for two hours while waiting for our boot tour. Since we had the New York Pass, we only needed a credit card for deposit. We got helmets, locks and a map and headed towards brooklyn bridge. The bikes were in perfect shape. The bike rental is located directly next to the piers so you can use... More

We had nothing special to do for a few hours and as the weather was sunny, we decided to rent bikes. This place seemed obvious and had several different bikes available. Service was friendly enough. My bike had a bit loose gears but other than that, no problems. A found rental a bit pricy though. My standard bike was $16... More

Before coming to NY we had been to San Fran and had done the Golden Gate bridge ride with Blazing Saddles there too. In SF we were so impressed with the customer service. They went through the route, attractions, helmets, bikes and were fantastic. This influenced our decision to go with them in NY. What a difference it was. The... More

Me and a group of 3 friends decided to use blazing saddles to cycle Brooklyn Bridge after seeing a flyer in our hotel. We arrived at their pick up point (nowhere near the bridge - bizarre) and asked to hire 2 tandems. Were told they only had 1 so the other 2 of us had to have standard bikes. All... More

We had a wonderful experience with their San Francisco location so it was a no-brainer to use the NYC bikes. My NY pass I had previously purchased worked without problem and the friendly and helpful people upgraded us to comfort bikes. It took us 4 hours to cycle to Battery park, through the financial district,over Brooklyn bridge, stop at Juniors... More

Winding our way through unfamiliar New York streets on bikes isn't my idea of fun, but it turned out to be ok. The hire process was easy, the guys helped us chose the right bikes for each of us, gave us maps and instructions, and we were off. We chose to stick to the bike path, probably safer for those...

we took a Brooklyn tour and it was very nice to go on bikes to Brooklyn. The guide was a nice guy but he knew next to nothing about New York - I think I knew more. This is not what you expect when you pay 60 dollars pr person for 2 and and half hour. (We chose this trip... More

Very good service, bicycles in very good shape. But we got lost would be great they had an app to drive you around, be careful as not all the route has bicycle lane, and there were a lot of construction going on in the way.
