If you haven't seen Central Park at night, you're truly missing out. The views of NYC's skyline are simply gorgeous. We'll ride through the Mall to the Ramble & visit Bethesda Terrace, stopping to check out the fountain and lake, which is a popular place for weddings. We'll also cycle to Belvedere Castle, which looks out over Turtle Pond and the popular Public Theater where 'Shakespeare in the Park' takes place every summer.
On our 6 mile loop of the park we'll ride by the historic Carousel, originally built in 1871, Tavern on the Green, which, until recently, was one of New York's most famous restaurants, and the world famous MET museum, among several other beautiful & historic areas. If you have a special place you wanna check out, let me know!
I've a native New Yorker who has been running, cycling, and playing in the park since I was a teenager. I'm completely confident that our short jaunt to the park will leave you with some great photos (better bring your camera) and fun memories. Depending upon the group, we'll be riding from 6 miles or more. It's easy cycling, with only a few short hills. Trust me, you're gonna have a damn good time!
I'm a native born New Yorker & world traveler. I'm a former Peace Corps volunteer who served in northern Morocco, completing my service in 2003. I've worked with AmeriCorps, Habitat for Humanity, and the United Nations. I also run the largest Arabic Meetup club in the world (www.NYCALCC.com). I LOVE my city, and enjoy sharing it with travelers of all ages, races, & cultures. I've found that most tourists come and do the typical tourist thing (Empire State Bldg, Statue of Liberty, Rockefeller Center, MoMA, etc), but don't end up actually getting a real 'FEEL' of the city. That's where I come in! If you wanna experience NYC like a New Yorker, let me take you out!! Full profile
