Meet Near Central Park

The tour begins across the street from the northern entrance to Central Park. Meet your local guide and the rest of your small group, snap on your helmet, and climb aboard your e-bike for a journey through the city.

You'll need to be at least 16 years old to ride an electric bike, and under 18's must be accompanied by an adult.

Central Park

The first stop on the tour is a ride through New York's most famous public space, Central Park. Like so many New Yorkers, your guide knows Central Park like the back of their hand, and they'll lead you on a route through some of its iconic movie locations, monuments, artworks, and hidden corners. You'll stop for photos along the way, and you can make a mental note of your favorite spots to come back to and relax later on.

Broadway Lights and Herald Square

Your guide will lead you on to see the bright lights and billboards that line Broadway—New York's world-famous theater district. See the latest releases on promotion, pass by the renowned venues where entertainment royalty have performed over the years, and enjoy the buzz and excitement of The Great White Way.

You'll also pass through Herald Square, the terminus of the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade each year, the famous flagship of the department store that sponsors the event is a sight to see.

High Line and the Hudson River

Two of the best additions to New York City over the past decade are High Line and the renovated Hudson River Greenway. Bringing a sense of nature to what was formally a center of industry has brightened up these areas and created the most scenic bike paths in Manhattan. With amazing views of the Statue of Liberty, Freedom Tower and more, it's a stunning ride and a great way to see New York from a whole new perspective. You'll follow the Hudson River all the way down to the attractive Battery Park,

Brooklyn Bridge

The last stop of the day is the Brooklyn Bridge. A highlight of world architecture, the impressive suspension bridge was opened in 1883 to connect the then separate cities of New York and Brooklyn. Today, the Bridge is still an important connection for cars, subways, bicycles, and foot traffic, as well as being one of those spots where you just have to get a photo when you come to NYC!

It's a perfect way to end your electric bike tour, and with a better understanding of New York you'll be ready to make the most of whatever time you have left in the city.

We had a great ride with Chuck. He was pleasant, informative, knowledgeable and provided great weather. ☀️ There were plenty of stops to take photos, and learn a little history. The bikes were in good shape, and everyone was provided with a helmet, and a basket (if needed). Loved it.

Amazing bike tour in NYC
