Central Park Full Day Bike Rental

Gate Prices Adult $40.00
Child (3-12) $37.00
Start your day getting outfitted with one of Central Park Sightseeing’s high quality, new bikes before hitting the streets of Manhattan for an unforgettable experience that combines exercise with sightseeing. Why rent a car when you can navigate your way around Central Park and beyond on bike, and skip the hassle of traffic? Don your helmet and get ready to burn off those Central Park hot dogs with a full day (8AM -8PM) bike rental from Central Park Sightseeing Bike Rental.

What else might you see with a full day’s bike rental? While you could easily bike all over the city, consider staying right within the lush greenery of Central Park’s 843 acres and 47 miles of paths for a day! Check out Central Park’s Belvedere Castle, a Victorian-style structure built in 1869, that sits atop Central Park’s Vista Rock and is the highest point in the park. Built of grey granite, the castle has an eclectic past, having been completed under the infamous Tammany Hall political organization, and later housing the New York Meteorological Observatory. In 1983 the building’s beauty and potential were realized by the Central Park Conservancy and it has been open to the public since. Also noteworthy in Central Park is the Shakespeare Garden, which contains plants mentioned in Shakespearean works (do a little research before you go for a fun scavenger hunt activity with kids!), and the garden is often used as a stage for Shakespearean plays.

Alternatively, you can use your bike to enjoy a full day of museum hopping. From Central Park, it’s easy to access most of Manhattan’s museums, including the Museum of Modern Art (MOMA), which is the world’s most influential art museum and home to Van Goghs, Warhols, and Monets, among others. Check out the Guggenheim, a breathtaking building designed by Frank Lloyd Wright, and home to masterpieces by Calder, Chagall, Kandinsky, Klee, Picasso and Van Gogh (his work sure gets around, doesn’t it?) Top off your day of museum visits with a trip to the world-famous Metropolitan Museum of Art. Home to more than two million works of art from around the world, the Met is New York’s most-visited attraction.

Whatever you decide to do with your flexible day of biking and fresh air, rest assured that you’re in good hands. Central Park Sightseeing provides all necessary equipment, including a user-friendly map, helmet, a basket, and the ever-important lock.
