The best new thing to come to New York: a bike share program called CitiBike. There are stations all around Manhattan; simply pick up a bike at one station, ride for a while, and drop it off at another station. No worries about locking it up or whether it will be there when you return!
I'll show you the best routes around the city, tell you my favorite stories, and help you see my hometown in a way that most tourists can't. I'll also guide you on routes that are best taken by bicycle, avoiding traffic and getting the most out of your trip.
Thanks to the CitiBike system, we can go pretty much anywhere in Manhattan below Central Park, and with a small group, I can tailor the route to showcase the sights you want to see. If you prefer, I can take you on a route of my own: along the Hudson River, up to the High Line, down through Greenwich Village, SoHo and Tribeca to the tip of Manhattan to see the Statue of Liberty. Then up past Wall Street and City Hall, past Chinatown across to Chelsea and back to the West Side.
If I don't have a tour set up for a date and time that you would like, just send me a message. I'll probably be able to accommodate you - I just need a little notice.
Note that the cost doesn't include the cost of the CitiBike itself. This way you can decide if you want to get a one-day or three-day pass, plus the boring-but-necessary insurance side of things stays with CitiBike should anything go wrong with the equipment.
Christopher is a native New Yorker, a licensed tour guide, and an attorney. He was also a contestant on Jeopardy once, but that didn't go so well. He loves showing people around New York, and he loves riding bikes. He also loves open water swimming, but that's not something he's going to do with tourists just yet. Full profile ⋅ Leave a Review
