Biking in New York City

tandem bicycle
The last time I went to New York City, we went to Central Park, and walked a little bit around, but did you know it is huge?? Central Park is 843 acres of park, including over 26,000 trees, lawns, paths and waterways. There are 36 bridges in Central park alone!

It was very tiring to walk it, and we rested a lot, and now I wish we would have chosen to rent a bicycle near Central Park and we could have seen much more of it than we did. I would have loved to have rented one of those tandem bicycles that are built for two, and just cruised along the paths of the park.

They have places to rent bikes by the hour, and it would have been much more enjoyable if we could have seen more of the Park. There is actually a place right by Central park where they have bicycles for rent in NYC. I know that next time we go, we will certainly be renting a bike or two so we can go all around Central Park and see all the fountains, and the carousel, oh gosh, how I wish I had seen that!! I have heard so many things about the carousel in Central Park, and yet I have never seen it!

There is so much to do when you are in New York City, and you can even experience Central Park, or for that matter, Downtown or Midtown too, with a NYC Pedicab tour! It is like a rickshaw, but powered by a bicycle upon which a trained tour guide will pedal you around and you can sit back and relax while you are sightseeing the City. Doesn't that sound nice??

Have you ever rented a bicycle in Central Park?
Till Next Time,

Yes that does sound nice. They can then dodge all that traffic too.

Have a terrific day. Big hug. :)

At least you got to see some of CP. In the 8th grade, the Beta Club went to DC & NYC. All the rich kids had already been so they voted that we not see the White House. How can you go to DC & not see the White House? Then, to make matters worse, we didn't even get to vote on CP when we got to NYC. Being from a small town, I guess the chapperones thought it was too big and dangerous for us, like the subways (we wanted to do that, too). So I got to see a small portion of NYC, but CP wasn't one of them. Not a real NYC experience in my opinion. Maybe one day.
