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.

Terrible customer service but good ride in the park
John_L, Jun 2023
We had booked this had everything we needed (tickets and address) to get our bikes. Went to the bike shop listed on the address and was told we were at the wrong place. They were rude and very unhelpful. They told us we needed to go to another location a block away. When we got there the process was overly complicated to get our bikes. Employees did not help with helmets or setting the bikes up for us. No instruction before we left. The actual ride in Central Park was great but the process to get there was terrible. Would not recommend this.
Shocking service

Kindly note: the review/one star is purely for this bike centre, NOT Viator. Thanks Viator team for processing my refund application. Went to central park to get our bikes at the first store we see (near the main roads), but they told us that there were multiple outlets and we had to walk further after Starbucks to get our bikes from another outlet - this was our fault for not seeing where the pick up was Kept walking till we saw the second outlet. We were greeted by this middle aged man who was all cheery but told us that it was not this outlet to get the bikes and to keep walking further down to get the bike... Fine...we checked the fine print again and we walked to the 117 outlet. The third outlet. At this point we wasted 30 mins the third outlet we showed the young boy our booking and he was clueless...he said he will call his boss... Guess what?! The boss was the middle aged man we saw at the second outlet. Wow?! Like he could have just helped us there but we waited for him to walk to the third outlet...seriously?! This dude then said his system slow. Can't find ticket. He had to call a couple of people...this was more than 45 mins of waiting at this point and he asked for some ID...which he say he has to keep it for security. Or we had to pay $100 deposit. At this point my friends and I were extremely frustrated. We decided to request for refund on the spot. And when we told the guy we don't want. He was adamant in keeping my friend's ID but we managed to take the ID back into our hands and walked out. Scary experience as the middle aged man looked unhappy when we left so we walked faster. Unpleasant experience
Enjoyable if a bit hectic
John_B, May 2022
The price for all day was very reasonable for 2 bikes. They were comfortable and easy to ride. The only part I didn't like was that we were smack in the middle of an estimated 30,000 riders in a bike tour the shop didn't happen to mention was going on. It was quite intimidating for an older couple that hadn't ridden for awhile. But once the tour cleared it was a lot easier. All-in-all, a nice time and the only realistic way to take in the entire park in a day.
Good experience
Very convenient location without big crowds. Bikes are in good conditions, cheap and convenient way to spend time riding in central park in good weather
the best way to get around Central Park!
Karen_E, Aug 2021
The bike was great, the experience overall was really good. The only thing I'm gonna comment is that I went to the address it said here but the store was closed, even after the time it was supposed to be open. Good thing there was another store to rent the same bikes really near.
Response from Host, Nov 2021

Israel_A, Aug 2020
We got a pretty good deal. The bikes were in excellent conditions. Next time we definitely come back.
Great bike ride in Central Park
john_ball1961, Sep 2019
2 hour bike ride is a perfect way to see the main areas of the park. The bikes were good and had great gears for the extra hilly areas of the park. They provide you with a map but you will need to keep your eyes open or you would miss some of the focal points
Response from Host, Nov 2019
Thanks for sharing your feedback! Communication with our riders is very important to us.

Bikes are unfortunately in poor condition, but quick clearance and pleasant servise. A lot of bikers otherwise.

Mariaclaudia_C, Aug 2023
Consiglio a tutti il noleggio, impossibile vedere tutto Centrale Park a piedi Noleggio vicino, bici leggere con cambio.
Un peu cher pour la qualité proposée
Jenny_J, Jul 2023
Les vélos sont vétustes, je pouvais pas changer les vitesses et les poignées étaient toute collante, bonjour l'hygiène. Il n'y a pas bcp de casques à disposition. Les vendeurs ne sont pas hyper sympa.
Response from Host, Sep 2023

Martina_H, May 2023
Dålig kvalité på cyklarna. Stressad personal. Fick ingen info innan att man skulle ta med leg för inlämning under tiden du hyr.
