We chose to do the Bike rental with Blazing Saddles Late July 2014. We arrived around noon with no reservation and were set-up to ride in 10-15 Minutes. Great Selection of new model well maintained bikes. We chose the entry level 3-speed Cruiser. The operator provided us with a map, basket, lock, quick tutorial on riding, bicycle laws and suggested... 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.

We visited Governor's Island in New York during Memorial Day Weekend. Blazing Saddles had just opened up at this location the day before, and they did not have all their bicycles put together yet. We have 4 kids ranging from 9-18 years old. Our youngest daughter was very excited to get to ride bikes, but when we got to the... More

We purchased the New York Pass, which included a free day's bike rental. Chris, at the Pier 78 location, was very pleasant and helpful. The rental process went smoothly, and the bicycles were in excellent mechanical condition. He recommended a route for us that would allow us to see much of Manhattan with a minimum riding in traffic (in some... More

Seat like a sofa - great for big rear ends! Bikes were great and the staff even better. It's right at the end of South Sea Port and if you find that - you'll have no problems finding the bike hire. Use the NY pass to hire the bikes and it's really good value. Riding bikes in NY is a... More

We did so many activities in our short NY visit but by far this was a favorite for all of us! We will always remember our fun day on bikes! Great bike paths with views of the city, rivers and bridges. The staff was so great! Very helpful, friendly, and knowledgable. Want to go back to ride again!
