Best of Central Park Bike Tour
120 to 150 minutes
There's no better way to see Central Park than on a bicycle! It's a massive 840 acres and includes 58 miles (93 km) of drives and paths! But even at a leisurely pace, we'll get to see about three-quarters of the terrain, and most of the major features of the park. We'll enter in the southeastern corner, see the skating rink, carousel, chess and checkers house, the Dairy, the Bethesda Terrace and fountain, the Jackie Kennedy reservoir, the Great Lawn, the Shakespeare Garden, the Belvedere Castle, Strawberry Field (John Lennon memorial) and the Dakota apartment building.
During the ride I'll share historical facts of the 162 year old park, its creation and evolution, funny stories, people important to the park and I'll point out places you'll recognize from TV and movies. And you wanna know about the real estate—"What are they paying to live there?"—I know about that, too. You'll have fun and get a great view and education on NYC's biggest tourist attraction!
