What To Expect

New York City’s Central Park is a designated National Historic Landmark and claims the title of most-visited urban park in the United States. This sprawling green oasis in the middle of the city’s urban bustle covers 843 acres (341 hectares) traversed by numerous paved paths, making it a perfect destination to explore by bike. Due to Central Park’s popularity, bike rentals often sell out during peak season, so pre-book your rental to ensure there will be a bike waiting for you.

Pick up your bike, helmet, lock, and carrying basket at the rental shop just blocks away from the park. Choose from a selection of hybrid, comfort, mountain, and children’s bikes to suit your group’s size and style. Rent a bike for just an hour or up to 24, depending on your schedule.

With the help of a free park map and the recommendations of rental staff, set off to explore more than 47 miles (75 km) of bike-friendly paths that wind through open meadows, lakes, bridges, gardens, and memorials. See famous attractions such as the Conservatory Garden, Belvedere Castle, the Central Park Zoo, the Imagine Mosaic, and the Central Park Carousel. Enjoy the flexibility of touring on two wheels, and stop to admire the scenery or take a rest as often as you like.

Easy to find good location to Central Park bikes were good quality and in good working order would use again
ANTONIO_U, Oct 2022
I rented a couple of bikes for a day, for my daughter and me. The bikes were good and we had a great day on the pedals and taking photos, but at dusk it was difficult for us to believe that only the weels had reflectives, but not the front neither the back of the bikes. The reception guy said that he would report the issue. I hope reflectives to be installed or at least customers to be advised in advance.
NY with friends!

Nice ride
Jennifer_K, Oct 2022
Guys were nice. Ride to the park is short and easy. We got there late so only had time for 3 hours, but it was enough time for us.
Avoid !!
Laetitia_G, Sep 2022
Very bad experience don’t go with this company! The staff is not nice at all and they don’t give you 1h bike but 50 minutes and if you are 2 minutes late they will charge you
Bikes weren’t good
Wendy_L, Aug 2022
Bikes were not well maintained. Mine had only 2 working gears so I had to bike uphill in a very low gear. My daughter had issues with the chain on every hill, and had to walk her bike about 1/4 of the way. They didn’t seem too interested. I’d rent from citi bikes inside the park next time.
The chain came off,...
Sergiy_K, Aug 2022
The chain came off, bicycles are average, but in general the ride was good. And the price is very affordable.
Issues with brake and gear changes.
Ismael_R, Aug 2022
Check the bikes before you leave the place. By the time I got into the bike I realized the braked were not functional at 100% and while changing the gears the chain never got back into place.
Central Park tour by self

It was a great activity in a lovely weather summer day, truly recommended ;) easily picked up and returned, close to Central Park.
An Excellent Sneak Peek into Central Park
DrDaniel_L, Aug 2022
This was an excellent way to spend 2 hours covering the major hot spots in Central Park. We were there in mid-August which was great weather - sunny but cool. Our guide gave us lots of interesting facts and stories about the park and its surrounding areas. I would recommend this to those who want an intimate sneak peek into Central Park.

Views Bikes were in good condition Very friendly staff. Well managed and efficient. V close to Central Park.
Don't use this company if you want to rent a bike for Central park.
Lucia_M, Aug 2022
Very poor customer relations. I booked online but realised withing minutes that they were nowhere near central park and we would have to cross busy NY streets to get back to the park, therefore more dangerous. Tried to cancel almost immediately but didn't hear back from them for days and by then it was too late and I was never offered any refund. We ended up renting bikes from "". They were within 50 yards of the beginning of Central park and were amazing.
Bike ride through Central Park
Lori_P, Aug 2022
Great experience for our family of 5 bike ride. The bikes were just right. Staff was friendly. I was hesitant about booking online before we arrived. So we went to the store and checked out the place. Viator was the best price compared to the walk-in price. We did the 4 hr tour and finished in 2.5 hrs. We took a water break at the far loop uphill water fountain off the walking path. Wish we made more stops but the kids were leading.
4 hrs is a good amount if...
Sarah_M, Jul 2022
4 hrs is a good amount if you want to have a leisurely cycle round the park with a few stop offs and lunch break.

Me and my family had a great time and so much fun. It was a great way to get around Central Park and see everything around the city.
It was a great day out...
Rhea_J, Jun 2022
It was a great day out with the bikes. The only thing is that the person who provided the bikes, helmet etc, did not give us the locks ans that stopped us from emjoying more of the park.
Customer service great
Kelley_M, Jun 2022
