New York City Central Park Bicycle Rental

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    What to Expect
    Head to a bike shop located near Central Park, and start your rental by getting fitted out with a bike and safety equipment. Your rental includes a Trek or Giant hybrid bike that’s comfortable for beginning riders, as well as a helmet, bike lock and a bicycle map of New York. Pedal into the park to find a lush landscape dotted with historic buildings, monuments and beloved film and movie locations.

    Ride past Strawberry Fields and pretty Cherry Hill, then pause to enjoy the cool air by the Bethesda Fountain. Learn the ‘great game’ history behind Cleopatra’s Needle and see The Dakota, the former home of John Lennon and Yoko Ono. Central Park has quiet roads and bicycle-specific paths that range from 1.7 miles to 6.1 miles (2.7 to 9.8 km).

    Opt for a single bike, or ride a tandem if available—road bikes, child bike trailers and child seats may also be available at additional cost. These bikes are appropriate for all ages and skill levels, and one adult 18 and over must be present.

    We rented bikes for six people. The staff were friendly and helpful. They ended up giving us a discount. We had a great time exploring Central Park. ...Will definitely rent from them again.

    Dreadful service and no manners, absolutely no sense of how to treat a customer. Prices are very expensive too - would be more worthwhile to rent citi bikes near central park or go to other bike rentals with more competitive pricesMore
