We went as a family (athletic teens) so keeping up but my problem, the bikes were great although they do not have baskets. There are two locations to pick up from, downtown by south street seaport and the other is up by the water taxi pier. It was raining in the morning when we got there (glad our plan was... More

Blazing Saddles can be recommended to anyone who wants to visit New York a different way. They explain very clearly what the biking laws are, give you a comprehensive map with the bike lanes and the way to get over Manhatten & Brooklyn bridge, with some alternative roads. We first biked through south Manhattan, then over Manhattan Bridge (do it... More

We used Blazing Saddles in NYC back in May - there were 3 of us and we decided to go it alone without a guide. The map that the team gave us was explained by a lovely member of staff who made it really easy to understand. We took the tour over to Brooklyn and back along Manhattan Bridge and... More

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
