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.

Unforgettable Adventure
Bridget_B, Mar 2024
1000% recommend a bike ride through Central Park. My wife and I did a 2-Hour ride and it was more than enough time to get some scenery and even do a little shopping. The rental company was just as amazing. TJ was very helpful and gave us tips, do’s and don’t’s to get the best out of our time. Great experience overall!!
Great to explore. Central Park
Duncan_W, Feb 2024
The bikes were excellent and just a short hop to Central Park. We explored the park far more than would have been possible on foot. Thought the price for a couple of hours was well worth it.

david_p, Oct 2023
All perfect except the nervous welcome. Majority of the people working in this place were nervous and not very kind with clients. Missing 2 or 3 more probably, too much pressure
Bike broke in the middle of Central Park.

Fixing my bike every 100 feet. Need a full refund. Annoying that I have to say more. Typical. Ghhhhhhhhhgghvhhhhhbhh
Cycling with Viator in Central Park
JOHN_A, Sep 2023
Riding together for the first time on bicycles especially the view of Central Park was so great it was on the bucket list and it is a must do again!everyone should try it go out rent a bike from Viator you won’t regret it! (John & Mildred) Sep 9 2023
Great customer service…but ended up in the hospital.
Stacey_G, Sep 2023
Everything was very smooth with the bike rental. All good until I fell off the bike while dismounting and broke my wrist. Would still do it again next time I’m in New York. By the way, the medical staff at Mt Sinai is also wonderful. 😊
Central Park Top to Bottom!

Excellent way to spend a day touring Central Park from one end to the other! Bikes are only allowed on certain paths, but you can easily get off, lock the bike up and explore other areas. It may be wise to bring a picnic. Or do what we did; lock the bikes up, wander into the neighborhoods on the west side and enjoy a nice lunch!
Almost good
Antonio_B, Jul 2023
Bike gears were broken once I changed during my ride no reimbursement or support from store personnel
Book plenty of time
Oliver_G, Jul 2023
The shop is 5 minutes from the park and your time starts when you check in, not even allowing time to actually be given your bike, so a 2 hour rental is more like 1hr 40mins in the park. That was just about enough time to cycle at a fairly slow pace and get an ice cream. A lot of the park is only accessible on foot so we ended up walking back to the park to have a look round.
Central Park bike hire fun
Keith_M, Jul 2023

Great bikes. Excellent service

Stephanie_L, Jul 2023
Very nice experience and the price is good. We really enjoyed our time in Central Park with the kids and friends.
Great, but ask how to do the gears. Lots of hills around Central Park.
Angela_F, Jul 2023
I loved being able to bike around Central Park. The bikes made it accessible. My husband, myself, and our grown son went the entire perimeter. We had issues with one of the bikes not wanting to shift gears correctly. Thankfully my son traded with me. He struggled with it too, but was able to make it work. I would suggest that they could maybe give a quickie lesson on gear shifting. We had to learn it on the fly by a biker in the park who was nice enough to give us some tips. We are not experienced riders-just average.
Great fun for everyone!!!
Claudia_S, Jul 2023
It is great fun to discover the entire Central Park like this within a short time. You can stop anywhere to take pictures thanks tp provided lockers. Unfortunatelly there were Not enough baskets available. But generlly, everything ran smoothly!! Thank you
you can find a better bike rental shop
Shai_Z, Jul 2023
1. location - if you rent a bike to ride the central park- there are bike rental shops that are located much closer to the park. consider you have to walk your bike to the central park. 2. the two bikes we got were poorly maintained - gear didn't shift. 3. they had only 1 bike with a basket which fell of after 2 minutes of riding .
Great way to explore Central Park
Kim_H, May 2023
We were recommended to ride around Central Park so I booked a 4hr bike experience , it was a great way to explore Central Park. The only thing I would say is the bike shop is a 5 minute ride out of the park so you do have to ride on the main road to get into the park, it was busy but we managed it. The shop service was quick and easy and we were on our way for a few hours of fun.
Exactly as expected!
Aimee_S, Apr 2023
Exactly as predicted! The guys at the shop helped us out quickly and in a friendly manner! Thank you 🙂
Enjoyable and efficient
Caroline_M, Apr 2023
Close to central park, a 5 minute walk. Bikes were well maintained. Locks and helmets provided Very efficient service, in and out in a few minutes. No problems Would recommend and use again
