What You Can Expect

Hudson River Park Greenway and Central Park Bike Tour

Hudson River Park Greenway and Central Park Bike Tour

Touring New York City on two wheels allows you to cover a lot of ground while having the flexibility to stop often and soak up the fantastic urban scenery. Meet your local guide near Central Park, where you’ll be fitted for a mountain bike and helmet. 

Set off through the city streets to reach the Hudson River Greenway — a long, narrow park that stretches along the west side of Manhattan. Ride along bike-friendly paths while soaking up fantastic views of the NYC skyline and the Hudson River. The tour is appropriate for all fitness levels and moves at a leisurely pace.

Follow your guide back to Central Park to explore the 843-acre (341-hectare) emerald oasis in the middle of the city. See famous landmarks like the Belvedere Castle, Cleopatra’s Needle, Strawberry Fields and the Shakespeare Garden. Stop at plenty of points along the way to learn about the history of the park, snap photos and refresh with water and a snack. 

Your 2- to 3-hour tour concludes back at the original departure point in the late afternoon.

This tour was great. We were able to see a lot of Central Park and it's surroundings in about three hours. Our tour guide Dan was very nice and knowledgeable. Bring water or cash to get done during the tour, they give you one bottled water but you will need more.

We had a fabulous tour. A big part of our experience was our amazing tour guide, Chuck! Chuck is extremely knowledgeable and genuinely wanted to make our tour a great experience. It is clear that a bike tour is one of the best ways to truly experience NYC! We highly recommend this tour and Chuck.

I really enjoyed this tour and it was a great way to see another side of New York. Our guides, Chuck and Dan were awesome and shared a lot of interesting facts about the city. I felt safe riding along in the streets for part of the tour along the NYC bike paths but you do have to be aware of the cars around you.
