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.
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.
Central Park Sightseeing matches riders with the proper transport or tour for exploring the 843 acres and 47 miles of scenic pathways that make Central Park famous. Park explorers can select from more than 150 new basket-equipped bikes for men, women, and children in a bevy of styles, such as hybrids for comfortable cruises, mountain bikes for tackling the park’s hills, and tandems that seat two riders or one cardio-savvy centaur. Tour guides piloting pedicabs convey visitors around the park while bestowing pearls of wisdom concerning the area’s history, including which famous movie scenes were filmed in the park and where. Some of Central Park’s more popular attractions, horse carriages take passengers on a relaxed trip through the trees and streets. For visitors who prefer to keep their feet on the ground, Central Park Sightseeing also offers walking tours led by guides that are well-versed in pop culture, park history, and the process in which baby squirrels hatch from their eggs.
Nestled in the heart of Manhattan, Rent-A-Bike-CentralPark encourages city exploration with tandem- and one-person-bike rentals and guided bike tours of Central Park. With longer bike lanes than any other city in the country, New York City fosters two-wheeled travel along Times Square, Fifth Avenue, and other scenic spots. During bike tours, one of Rent-A-Bike's tour guides leads guests through Central Park's pastoral landscape. Bikers breeze past Belvedere Castle and a fort from the War of 1812 before approaching the Obelisk, a public monument from the 1880s that moonlights as a toothpick for the presidents of Mount Rushmore.
After his stint in the Marine Corps, E Physique Personal Training Studio’s owner Eddy transformed how he viewed fitness—he began to see it as a way of life rather than a mere hobby. “In the Marines,” he explains on his website, “I learned that body and mind are connected. If you have a strong body you can accomplish so much more.” Fueled by this belief that a healthy body is the bedrock of physical and mental well-being, Eddy puts his military and personal-training background to use helping others create realistic fitness goals during boot camps and one-on-one sessions within an encouraging gym environment. About-facing from the impersonal approach he encountered working at other gyms, he focuses more on measurable improvement and customer satisfaction than upon sales stats and the number of Dolph Lundgren look-alikes he can enlist.
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.
