In addition to the greenway, we rode in designated... More

Great staff adjusted the bikes for us and provided helmets, locks, baskets to hold our stuff and even a rubber band to keep pant legs out of the chain!

Chris arranged everything very good for us and we received a blue and red City bike. We cycled to Central Park... More

I booked two places on the Brooklyn Bridge tour 6 weeks in advance but when we turned up we were told that the trip was cancelled because the minimum number of participants hadn't been reached. Despite having our email and phone details they couldn't be bothered to inform us in advance. When we complained via email they told us that... More

Attentive staff, great bikes and all the information you need (including a safety and "common sense" briefing). Loads of different routes, mainly on designated cycle paths makes for a safe and enjoyable way to see and experience New York.
