From a storefront near the Queensboro Bridge, LIC Bicycles rents out a fleet of high-quality bikes that offer trusty transportation through the streets and sights of the Big Apple. Check out a Scott Sub 20 all-terrain model to play games of bike chess in Central Park or call ahead to reserve a road bike for negotiating the treacherous dips and spikes of Wall Street. All rental bikes include locks, a city map, and a basket to cart around valuables or hitchhiking groceries. Helmets are mandatory with all rentals and can be checked out for an additional $5. In order to rent a bike a refundable deposit is required and the prices, depending on the model of the bike, start at $200. Once the bicycle is returned, depending on your bank, the deposit is returned to your account immediately on weekdays, and could take a few days to show if you rented on the weekend.
Located on the periphery of Manhattan's legendary park, Central Park Bike Rental and its staff of licensed tour guides facilitate exploration of the city. Solo adventurers mount single or tandem rental cruisers, mountain bikes, or road cycles and, equipped with included helmets, baskets, and locks, take off like hungry earthworms burrowing toward the center of the Big Apple. When tour guides captain excursions, they supplement the leisurely pace of two-hour Central Park bike tours with a steady stream of historical facts. They’ll also make pit stops at famous sites, including the Shakespeare Garden and Belvedere Castle, a weather station that still predicts impending disasters. After returning their Trek bikes, riders can return to the park to imitate more than 1,400 animals living at the Central Park Zoo. Patrons who wish to see the city without exerting themselves can opt for a one-hour pedicab tour. During these tours, guides propel up to three passengers or six toddlers stacked up inside three trench coats to their desired destinations, pointing out the best eateries and landmarks along the way.
From 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. seven days a week , Unlimited Biking pairs subscribers with bikes for two-, three-, or four-hour jaunts based on their membership choice and hairdo-resilience threshold. After selecting a package, customers choose the days and time they want to reserve a bike, pick up their ride at the Unlimited Biking headquarters in Manhattan , and return it within the allotted time . The service rents out Biria Citibikes, and depending on the membership package, subscribers can make up to two or four reservations in advance at a time.
ModSquad Cycles’ experienced staff of benevolent bicycle blacksmiths protects pedal pods of all makes, models, and literary tastes from out-of-tune configuration conundrums. Submit your foot-powered two wheeler to the tender hands of a knowledgeable technician for a full bicycle tune-up, and rest assured that your cycle will be returned more in-tune than a Celine Dion bicycle horn. The full tune-up and truing rejuvenates bikes that haven’t been to the chiropractor by adjusting brakes, bearings, and shifters. Next, wheel therapists true tires into alignment before the bike's frame is rubbed clean. To finish, a body physician examines the entire frame for any safety concerns and rewards well-behaved bicycles with a lollipop.
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.
Leading more than 30 bike tours across the nation, the cycling enthusiasts at Bike and Roll fuel a passion for healthy, eco-friendly transportation via guided tours and self-guided rides atop rental bikes. Their fleet of two-wheelers stakes a claim to Trek bicycles—the same brand that propelled Lance Armstrong to victory—and other recreation, transportation, road, and children's bikes. Riders can pedal behind a guide during the Ride 'Round Manhattan tour, which circles the Statue of Liberty and the Ulysses S. Grant Memorial before cruising along the Harlem River bike path. More adventurous cyclists can board rental cycles on their own and confer with free maps to conduct a jaunt across the Brooklyn and Manhattan bridges while drinking in the skyline and making Waldo spottings along the river. Bike and Roll also outfits patrons with other specialty transportation, such as in-line skates, segways, and magic carpets programmed to swing past the tops of only historic buildings.:m]]
