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 Groupon to Easy Riders JC, with locations in Hamilton Park and Liberty State Park. Choose between the following options:
- For $15, you get an all-day bike rental (a $30 value).
- For $25, you get a weekend guided bicycle tour, with helmet and bicycle included, to Liberty State Park (a $50 value).
Easy Riders JC sends gaggles of bicycles rolling from Hamilton Park and Liberty State Park, where they can watch wistfully as they cruise away down beautiful trails and alongside stunning Manhattan skyline views. Helpful staff members equip each rider with an appropriately sized bicycle, helmet, lock, map, and stunt doubles for those attempting to out-run the Russian mafia. Pedal-pushers can pick up their two-wheeled date as early as 10 a.m. and return it by 9 p.m. The Hamilton Park pickup location requires reservations 24 hours in advance, whereas the Liberty State Park outpost accepts walk-ins only. The 2.5-hour Liberty State Park bicycle tour starts when tour-takers climb aboard one of Easy Riders’ comfortable bikes, don helmets to protect their gray matter, and then turn their wheels toward Liberty State Park. Ride along the Gold Coast waterfront, soak in views of the Manhattan skyline, and listen to one of Easy Riders’ friendly guides share historical stories. 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, the image of Joe Namath being beamed onto the clouds, and Ellis Island. Call at least 48 hours in advance to schedule a tour.
Easy Riders JC offers the tour for $30 for those who provide their own bike and helmet.
