Variety is the name of the game at Bike and Roll New York City. Their staff sets out to enhance the way visitors and residents alike experience the city with a wide range of tours and services. The company's guided bike tours enable riders to join with fellow explorers and follow a knowledgeable guide to scenic destinations, such as Central Park, the Brooklyn Bridge, Battery Park, and the 9/11 Memorial. For more relaxed exploration, riders can mount a segway and travel through Liberty State Park during 1.5-hour excursions that present stunning views of the skyline and Statue of Liberty. Riders can also rent bikes and follow self-guided routes to travel the city's streets at their own pace, take breaks to pose for pictures, and pedal backwards whenever they feel like it.
With a fleet of futuristic segways and classic beach-cruiser bicycles, Bike and Roll Chicago outfits travelers with wheeled transportation to explore the city's paved surfaces. Tour guides lead groups through Millennium Park and along the lakefront to catch the skyline when illuminated by sunrises or backlit by one of Chicago's many moons. Misty Lake Michigan breezes ruffle riders' hair peeking through helmets as they pass by sailboats swaying lazily in the harbors and fishermen casting lines for trout and perch. Bike and Roll Chicago designs routes around classic architectural landmarks such as the Shedd Aquarium and Field Museum as well as popular neighborhoods home to a number of restaurants and art festivals.
Tourists and natives alike perch atop rental bikes from Blazing Saddles’ impressive fleet, pedaling down New York City's Greenway Bike Path and thoroughfares on adventures that combine exercise and sightseeing. Cyclists select from an array of comfort cruisers, 24-speed performance hybrids, and mountain bikes outfitted with the thick tread and front suspension necessary to support their riders and the mountain goats that often cling to them. Complimentary helmets and locks accompany each rental, along with detailed maps criss-crossed with routes for self-guided tours. Alternatively, three-hour guided tours of the Brooklyn Bridge area or Central Park give bikers a more structured touring experience.
Amid the bustle of Manhattan's honking horns, hustling crowds, and non-stop traffic, Brooklyn Bridge Sightseeing provides several avenues through which customers can take in the city at a much more leisurely pace. The staff rent out single and tandem bikes on which independent riders can explore the city, while friendly guides lead curated pedicab tours and walking tours of Central Park and nearby landmarks. Their popular horse and carriage tours provide a romantic option. During these excursions, the driver leads a horse-drawn carriage on a scenic jaunt past iconic New York City attractions that may include Central Park Zoo, Sheep Meadow, and the high-rise in which Oscar the Grouch secretly lives.

Having accrued 15 years of teaching experience, the staff members at Tennis Innovators prioritize exciting instruction and curriculums over barraging students with volley after volley. They appreciate the challenge of holding a child's interest and create fun drills for junior pupils, who can begin to learn racket-swinging techniques as early as age 3. The QuickStart and JuniorExtreme programs act as intriguing introductions to the sport for adolescents and work on improving their coordination, mobility, and athleticism, both on and off the court. In fact, they don't require a court to host their afterschool programs and will adapt lessons to fit any suitable space, such as a gymnasium or the least occupied patch of an in-use baseball diamond.
Classes aren't just for children—the staff hosts adult sessions aimed at improving overall game play and fitness in a supportive environment for fully formed humans of all skill levels. Staffers also lend their management expertise to neighborhood tennis clubs, providing guidance for hiring and training processes, court maintenance, and marketing.
