The sight of children chasing each other on their bikes brings back a lot of good memories – the care-free childhood days that we once had, the fun summer afternoons spent getting soiled in the local park and the ride home. If you are in New York and would want to revisit that pleasant memory, you can go for the Central Park bike rentals that are popular these days.
New York city now offers a lot of Central Park bike rentals shops for locals and tourists alike. These shops provide options for customers as to how many hours or days are the bikes going to be used. If you are interested in trying this type of service, all you have to do is contact a particular bike rental New York shop, online or in person, and let yourself be known by the shop manager.
For tourists and visitors, there are also a number of bike rental New York tours that you can go for. Listed below are its benefits.
The first advantage of riding a bike is that, it lessens air pollution. Aside from keeping you healthy, riding the bike all over the city is a great help in minimizing the total amount of smog within New York’s atmosphere. But if you are planning to use the bike for more than just a day, make sure you inform the bike rental shop manager of your intentions so that you will not be charged of anything extra than the regular rates. You will also avoid problems and delays if you inform them beforehand.
The second advantage is that, most bike tour services offer a fully guided group tour around the city. So if you do not want to be biking alone, have yourself enlisted with a guided group tour. Bike rental shops usually have group tours everyday in several batches. So if you are interested, all you have to do is sign up for one.
If you plan to visit New York in a group, booking a bike guided tour is much cheaper compared to other group tour options. This is the third advantage. You can check the internet for bike rental shop promos and packages, tour schedules and other information that you will need for the group tour. You can also check for more than one rental shop and compare their rates.
Should you decide to go for the group tour, try to ask the tour guide for the places included in the tour. If you want to visit other places that are not included in the tour plan, try to ask your tour guide if it would be possible to do a side-trip. Usually, it is.
When you tour the city in a bike, just bring the things that you need – water, little extra money and a camera. A bike does not have that much room, so be resourceful.
