A city is a place of tremendous variety, usually constructed upon rock ‘n’ roll. Hop into the bike saddle and soak up NYC's sights with today's Groupon: for $25, you get a day pass, including a bike rental, helmet, and more from Bike and Roll (a $49 value). Pick up a bike at your choice of eight locations (weather permitting). The Pier 84, Tavern on the Green, Governors Island, West Harlem Piers, Highbridge Park, East River Park, and Battery Park locations are already open, and the Riverside Park location will be opening later in the season.
Avoid traffic, cut down on travel time, and feel the breeze: Bike and Roll offers self-guided bike routes through an immense piece of the city. Day passes include a bike rental, helmet, locks, maps, and unlimited one-way trips between locations, allowing customers to pick up a bike at one location and drop it off at another. Pedalers can take in the sights or nimbly escape sentient tourist attractions as they roll through a series of one-way trips that give them the option of visiting Central Park, Battery Park, and the Manhattan waterfront. Riding on a comfort bike is a great way for a newcomer to see NYC or for a native to take a moment to appreciate the city's beauty. Go on an introspective joy ride, or take the whole crew along and tether bikes together to battle cars in case of a motor-vehicle uprising. With every day pass comes additional discounts off the price of admission to the NY Water Taxi, the Intrepid Museum, Bodies: The Exhibition, and more.
Bike and Roll requires a security deposit for all rentals. The rental terms and conditions also require a valid driver's license or passport before rental.
Bike and Roll
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]]
