The Central Park bicycle tour is the best way to explore the entire park and learn more about its rich history and fabulous sights. The tour will begin from the bike store located adjacent to a dedicated bicycle lane that leads to the main entrance of Central Park. That means absolutely no biking in the crazy NYC traffic. This valuable safety precaution already makes the bicycle tour a favorite one for people all ages and experience levels.
You will be greeted by a friendly staff member, who will help you pick the perfect bike for you and provide you with all the safety equipment and instructions on how to operate the bike. There is a mechanic on staff who will make sure that all safety features are working properly before giving you the bicycle.
With your small group limited to eight people, start heading towards Columbus Circle (the main entrance of Central Park). You'll be able to hear your tour guide and have the opportunity to chat with him and get to know each other.
Make sure you dress comfortably, as the tour takes approximately 2 hours and covers the entire 843 acres of lush greenery of Central Park. The first part of the tour will concentrate on the history, architecture, design and landscape of the park .You will learn about one of the most ambitious architectural undertakings in the history of mankind as well as what inspired the creators of the park to embark on journey of a lifetime to build Central Park.
You will then be introduced to some of the most famous sights in New York and have the opportunity to drop-off the bicycle and take some time to explore them on foot.
