To see a different part of manhattan, take the blazing saddles bike hire from pier 78. WE went all the way down the bike way- very safe- then cycled across the Brooklyn bridge and toured Brooklyn heights, before heading back across the manahattan bridge and travelling up the east side. A great view and the staff there couldn't be more... More

We used an online coupon and rented four hybrid bikes for the afternoon. What a perfect way to spend the day and see the city. We rode over the Brooklyn and Manhattan bridges, through Central Park, and north on the east side and south on the west. The bikes were in excellent condition and the staff at Blazing Saddles were...

i rented a bike off them from their Central Park outlet. The price was great. $14 for the 1 hour in which I managed to cycle the whole of central park twice. That was at a very quick pace though. you'll get round once in the hour at a leisurely pace. They had other hire options available for other time... More

We bought the New York Pass and the hiring of the bikes was included in the package. The service was excellent, very quick, locks were provided and helmets if you wanted them, we were also given a suggested route to cycle. Amazing cycle over the Brooklyn Bridge and would really recommend it.

Blazing saddles has great equipment and reasonable prices. The pier location is great for getting on the Hudson River Greenway. Our Gary Fisher bikes were well-equipped with storage, a bell, helmet and we were provided a map. We had a wonderful 40 mile ride spanning the Brooklyn Bridge to Grants Tomb. In addition to the greenway, we rode in designated... 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.
