Since cheetah-shoes don't yet exist, and a tree stump with a saddle on it is hopelessly immobile, bicycles remain the best way to tour a city. See the sights in two-wheeled fashion with today's deal: for $25, you get a guided bicycle tour to Liberty State Park from Easy Riders Jersey City. This Groupon is valid from Thursday–Saturday for tours beginning at 11:00 a.m.; tour times are based on availability.
The 2.5-hour Liberty State Park bicycle tour starts at Hamilton Park. Tour-takers climb aboard one of Easy Riders’ comfortable bikes, don helmets to protect their gray matter, then turn their wheels toward Liberty State Park. Along the Gold Coast waterfront, soak in views of the Manhattan skyline and listen to one of Easy Riders’ friendly guides spin historical and legendary threads into yarns bright enough to become a peacock’s socks. Once you arrive at the flora- and fauna-filled state park, you'll see some of America’s most welcoming sights: the NYC skyline, the Statue of Liberty, and Ellis Island. Whether you’re an out-of-towner who must tour by bicycle because your town car broke down, or a North Jersey native who fears bicycling alone because you don’t know how to fix flats caused by road-kill porcupines, an Easy Riders easy ride is a fun and easy way to experience the area. Call at least 48 hours in advance to schedule a tour.
- Formerly abandoned railroad land, this incredible piece of metropolitan area real estate has been transformed into a park like no other. With sweeping views of lower Manhattan, Ellis Island and the Statue of Liberty, along with ferries to all of the above, playgrounds, picnic areas, bike paths, estuary, gardens, marina and a fine restaurant with unparalled [sic] view. – TripAdvisor member, June 21, 2005
- My favorite park in the whole wide world. As everyone else mentioned, the view of NYC, Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island are amazing. – Kiet L., Yelp
- Huge, spacious park with many pathways for biking and running. It doesn't get crowded. You can freely bike and put in your daily cardio run without any disturbances. Since you're right by the water, there is a nice breeze that comes in occasionally. Sunset is gorgeous here. – Thuy P., Yelp
