Central Park Bike Tour

Central Park is on every NYC bucket list, but we want you to experience it to its fullest! Join us for a two-hour ride that will tackle all the highlights and give you plenty of great ideas to come back and enjoy the park on your own.

Departing from our office on 56th street, we will make our way directly to the park to enjoy the car-free paths and tree-lined trails. Your local guide will point out a few curiosities in the park, such as the Alice in Wonderland statue, the famous Bethesda Fountain, and the iconic Literary Walk. All along the way you'll enjoy spectacular skyline views of the city.

Cycling around the scenic Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis Reservoir we'll also have a chance to stop at the Strawberry Fields Memorial commemorating John Lennon. You will be sure to recognize famous settings from TV and movies as we pedal along, enjoying the shade from the American Elm trees that line the paths. This is a picturesque tour with plenty of information, photo opportunities, and an escape from the bustle of the city. We can't wait for you to join us!
