If the dune buggy and the sewing wheel hadn't enjoyed that fateful tryst so many years ago, the bicycle might never have been born. Honor the proud parents of pedal-powered progress by holding tight to the handlebars of today's Groupon: for $25, you get an all-day bike rental from Central Park Bike Tours (up to a $65 value). This deal is valid for single-ride bicycles (no tandems or bike trailers).
Central Park Bike Tours, or CPBT, provides well-maintained Trek bikes for men, women, and children who dream of a velocipede utopia. Each rental includes all-day use of the bike, helmet, map to chart your course, and bike lock to protect the goods. Atop your two-wheeled terrain traverser, you can propel yourself deep into the core of the Big Apple, steering clear of rampaging Godzillas and King Kongs while getting an eyeful of the city’s sights. The CPBT staff is happy to offer recommendations of scenic routes, nearby attractions, and delicious dining options. Burn off calories accrued during the yearlong competitive eating contest you recently finished while also exploring New York City with the help of Central Park Bike Tours’ conjoined unicycles.
All bikes are subject to availability. Riders must be at least eight years old.
