We had a great experience with the bike rentals for our family (2 adults and 2 children, ages 12 and 15). The location to Central Park was perfect and we enjoyed riding through the city and the park both. The bikes were easy and in good form, and the staff who helped us were all very great. Looking at other rental options, the prices here were also unbeatable. Thank you for making our trip to NYC so memorable through this activity.

Once we found the place (don’t search for the name on Google Maps as there are several companies with similar names within a mile of this one and you’ll wear yourself out before you even get your bike), we had a very good experience. Staff was very friendly and helmets and baskets were included in price (unlike the other 3 places we stopped at first). Returning the bikes was easy and again, the staff was very nice. Will definitely rent from them again next time!

We had 4 bikes, three of the where pretty good, one was crap. Ladys bikes are limited, had to wait for one. However, we would not go for a bike ride in Central Park again. There is only one big bike “highway” and you can not go wherever you want. We had the bikes for 4 hours but where more or less done with Central Park in 30 minutes. Where enjoying the view without using the bike the remaining 3 1/2 hours as the rest of the area not is easy to ride as a tourist. Would prefer to go for a long walk in Central Park next time.

They gave me a bike with a loose derailleur. It came off half way through the ride when I switched gears. I almost got thrown off and luckily jumped off just in time. When I was in the store, another person came in with a broken bike. It was scary to see them giving these dangerous bikes to families with kids.

To return the bike, I had to carry the bike on my shoulders for 5 blocks to get a cab at the nearest park exit. The front desk staff held my ID hostage until I paid the $76 fee to fix the bike. The corporate staff told me it was my fault for not noticing the issue earlier.

What is a customer to do, expect a good quality product? Try not to get injured on a defective product? Not having to pay for the defect? Just avoid this place.

Bikes were okay (one could have done with a good drop of oil to prevent squeaking from brakes) but our main gripe was with the plainly uninterested long haired main that served us on Sat 19th March. It seemed like he'd prefer to be anywhere else other than in the bike rental shop. As a couple who both work in hospitality we love to see good service but also feel very strongly about poor customer service and when things aren't up to scratch. Very unfriendly and just downright rude when asked very straightforward questions.

Such a great way to get around and see the sights of central park. Roberto dealt with us at the shop, we returned the bikes 15 mins late but Roberto was ok. The bikes could do with servicing as a couple of them that we hired didn't change gear very well. We also hired bikes from the Brooklyn bridge branch, rode across Brooklyn bridge and back over Manhattan bridge, up to Union Square, back down Broadway to Little Italy, where we stopped for a pizza and finally back to the store. The cycle paths on the road are fairly well marked out and we felt safe using them.

I had the Big Bus Explorer ticket which included a tour with Unlimited Biking. When I emailed them to query booking, there was a discrepancy on the times of the tour printed on the Big Bus Tour website. A lovely lady rung me on WhatsApp as I did not have any mobile data due to being on a UK network who explained that the tour was only one tour at 9am. Unfortunately, we were too late to attend. However, she advised me to come to the store and hire a bike to explore by ourselves which we did. The bikes were easy to use, we had helmets and a bike lock. The rules of the road were quite simple and we went through all the necessary insurance procedures prior to hiring the bike. All the members of staff were really helpful and gave us a map, along with highlighting key attractions within the park. We had 2 hours which I think was not quite enough as we wanted to go at a more leisurely pace, stop and take photos etc. But we underestimated how long it would take us to cycle around so we did leave in a bit of a rush. Overall, a great company to deal with and would definitely recommend!

I took 3 17 year old boys and 1 6 year old. All of them said it was the highlight of the day. The older boys said that when they heard we were riding bikes they thought it would be lame, but it ended up being their favorite thing we did. It allowed us to see the whole park during a day trip and have the energy and time to do Times Square at night. They give you everything you need (basket, lock, helmet) and disinfect everything. 58th st location was closed due to COVID but 56th st was open.

Pickup location should be specified in advance. Customer should know pick up is not in Central Park. The location I received after I booked was closed and we had to walk another 20 minutes after already walking 40 minutes from Central Park. Also the gears on 3 of the bikes were not working well, making the ride very difficult.
