Not all bike tours are created equal. Since 2001, the expert, experienced, professional guides of Bike the Big Apple have been safely taking guests far off the "beaten path" - in all 5 boroughs! With us, you will venture into real ethnic neighborhoods, and experience what life is like beyond the skyscrapers. In fact, we are quite proud to still be the only company to do bike tours of our beloved Bronx - seldom seen by visitors to the city.Why take a bike tour? Walking tours are severely limited in the distance they can travel; you are either going to visit a very small area of the city, or spend half of your day underground. Bus tours can cover plenty, but you are completely removed from the neighborhoods by glass. On bike, you can cover much and still get a real "feel" for the neighborhoods we take you to.Come ride with us!

This was our favorite day in the city. Highly recommend to families with teens. Marc was our guide and had a lot of great history and interesting facts to share about the city and neighborhoods. Worth every dollar!

We did the Sunday ride into Harlem and had a great time. The bikes provided were fine, our guide Richard was excellent and we experienced parts of NYC we hadn’t seen on many previous visits. Highly recommended!
