A group of friends and I gathered to ride for a fundraising event through the city a Saturday morning in October. We all rented the "comfort" bike, so I can only personally vouch for this one, but I must say it definitely deserves its name! While we didn't try any of the other ones, they actually make you test your bike out near the business before you take off, so you can see which one works best for you before leaving.
The staff was very friendly and helpful, ready to answer your questions, willing to share extra tips and concerned with making sure you are really set before you go - not once did we feel rushed. They were actually already expecting us by the time we arrived, so even the paperwork went very smoothly considering there were about 10 of us!
It was also great to see that there are some businesses left in NYC who are still willing to support a good cause and not only looking to always maximize profit. We reached out to several rentals asking for support for our cause. Jimmy, Blazing Saddles' manager, was the first and only one that responded, very supportive right away!
Thanks to this place we were able to successfully bike for 15 miles through Manhattan, Brooklyn and back over 2 bridges and through about 10 neighborhoods to raise awareness and funds for our cause.
We'll hopefully be able to organize this event again next year, and for sure will be reaching out to Blazing Saddles and no other for our rentals when we do. Plus, the location was just perfect to start and end our trip!
