Lower Manhattan Bike Tour

New York, NY

About

See the best of Manhattan in one day! On this tour we’ll ride through the following neighborhoods: Battery Park, Wall St. / Financial District, South Street Seaport, Chinatown, Little Italy, the Lower East Side, Soho, East Village, Greenwich Village, the West Village, the Meatpacking District and a little bit of Chelsea.

The best way to see NYC

We know what you’re thinking, but don’t be intimidated by the slow traffic and cabs of Manhattan. Cycling in NYC is actually really easy, not to mention fun! Bike lanes abound as we cruise down streets where buses fear to tread. Ride by iconic sights like Washington Square Park in Greenwich Village, or pause for the best view of the Brooklyn Bridge in all of Manhattan along the East River Greenway.

Experience the real New York

We’ll stop for a visit to an intimate coffee shop along the way, one that happens to be inside an old bookstore frequented by famous writers and poets. There’s a reason they call New York City a “melting pot.”  From Chinatown to the Lower East Side, Little Italy to the West Village, Lower Manhattan is full of unique neighborhoods each with it’s own character, and we ride through them all! There’s more to NYC than great pizza, but if it’s pizza you want, we’ve got it! We like to switch up the lunch stop depending on what our groups are into. No matter the craving, we’ll find a uniquely New York spot to sate it! 

Why choose us

The reason our tours are so popular is simple: our guides are cool people (actors, musicians, film-makers, and yogis) that you’ll actually want to spend time with. Not only do they have all the info on where you’re going and what you’ll see, they’ve all got their own stories to make the experience truly personal. Can a guidebook tell you where it almost ran over John Malkovich? We didn’t think so.

What time should I arrive?

Guest should arrive AT LEAST 30 minutes before the tour start time. Just like a plane departs at a certain time, so do we! If you show up late chances are we’ll already be gone which means you’ll lose your booking and won’t receive a refund. Early bird gets the worm!

How long is the tour?

Issues like flat tires, weather and group pace can also affect how much we’re able to see on any given ride. Tours are for a set period of time, 4.5-5 hours generally.

What if it rains?

New York City weather is so unpredictable and hard to keep up with! Most of the time, it doesn’t rain for the entirety of the tour, or it doesn’t end up raining until after the tour. Because of this, we ride rain or shine and we’ll use rain ponchos to keep you dry and happy! We cancel ONLY if a flash-flood warning or severe thunderstorm warning is issued by NYC, and in this case we’ll issue a full refund on the day of the tour if either of these events occur. But we won’t let the rain ruin our parade! We’ll be the cool kids in the bike lanes with our bike friendly ponchos.
