“LOVED IT!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2013

We did this on our last day, and it was so much fun!! We rode across the Brooklyn Bridge, came back via the Manhattan Bridge, and rode up to Central Park. It was a long day, but it was a great way to see the city and Central Park-had a great time!!

“Best condition bikes and multiple locations is nice.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2013

Blazing Saddles is on the New York Pass and best part is you get a full 24 hour rental and helmets included! We didn't take advantage of the 24 hours, we had our bikes for about 3 hours. We picked up our bikes at the Pier 78 (west side) location and rode the greenway to Brooklyn bridge, got ice cream and rode back over the Manhattan bridge. We brought our bikes back to South Street Seaport location which saved about 30 minutes from bringing them back to the west side.

We did have to pay a $5 charge since we dropped off at a different location but they made up for that by giving us an upgrade to hybrid bikes from the beach cruiser that's included on the New York Pass. I got bikes in two other locations and these were by far the friendliest folks and best condition bikes. Highly recommended!

“Great ride with Solo across the Brooklyn bridge!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2013

We had a great ride and super customer service from Solo! We didn't have the time allotted to Bike the Big Apple and were referred to Blazing Saddles. I reached Solo when I called. My husband and I wanted to bike the bridge. They normally don't take tours of only 2, but Solo committed to taking us (and on his day off). He was very professional and committed to the customer experience. It was an easy paced but steady 3 hour tour with many interestng landmarks and historical tidbits. Had pizza at Grimaldi's under the bridge ( not included) and flew down the path on the Manhattan bridge returning to the city. $60 each and worth the time. You can also keep the bikes for 24 hours and venture out on your own. Next time I would add central park to my exploration by bike. ASK FOR SOLO!!!!!!!!!

“Biking Manhattan Island is amazing!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2013

We used our New York Pass and rented no charge the easy going beach bike which was just perfect. We used our pass on the last day that it was going to expire and rented the bikes just before Blazing Saddles closed for the night. Its a 24 hour rental so we just took our bikes back to our hotel room and had an early start the next day. We biked all day throughout Manhattan, hitting Battary Park, Little Italy, Canal Street, Brooklyn Bridge up to Central Park and returned our bikes by 4:00 o'clock! It was my favorite day in New York!
