Biking is such a wonderful way to see New York City. It allows you to get the real city experience AND get a nice, low-impact workout while you’re at it. It’s better than taking cabs because you can weave in and out of traffic (safely, of course!), better than the subway because you can actually see the scenery change as you navigate your way through the neighborhoods, and better than renting a car because you save a ton of money!
Furthermore, it’s environmentally friendly and allows you to do your part for clean air. Goodness knows every little bit helps, especially in a crowded metropolis like NYC. If the idea of biking through a concrete jungle is a little intimidating, consider this: New York City’s streets were designed on a grid system, meaning they are numbered for very easy navigation, and thousands of people choose this efficient way to get around every day. Also, you’re not limited to the streets, and can cruise through beautiful Central Park for a scenic and green ride.
All this makes for a very appealing means of transportation, so definitely consider the All Day Pass from Bike and Roll when planning your trip to New York City.
