Overview

Not all bike tours are created equal. Since 2001, the expert, experienced, professional guides of Bike the Big Apple have been safely taking guests far off the "beaten path" - in all 5 boroughs! With us, you will venture into real ethnic neighborhoods, and experience what life is like beyond the skyscrapers. In fact, we are quite proud to still be the only company to do bike tours of our beloved Bronx - seldom seen by visitors to the city.Why take a bike tour? Walking tours are severely limited in the distance they can travel; you are either going to visit a very small area of the city, or spend half of your day underground. Bus tours can cover plenty, but you are completely removed from the neighborhoods by glass. On bike, you can cover much and still get a real "feel" for the neighborhoods we take you to.Come ride with us!

We were lucky to do this tour when one of the avenues was close so we cycled up to central station. Johanus was great and although you do cycle in traffic with some unusual manoeuvres it was always safe. The pub lunch stop is ok...More

There were not any children on our bike ride through Central Park and Harlem. However, I would email the bike tour and ask them directly to see if they could accommodate you. The bike tour is offered rain or shine and we... More
