Our Central Park Tours all depart from our Central Park location at 56 W 56th Street between 5th and 6th avenues. All you need to bring is a valid ID and credit card. We will size you for your bikes and provide you with a helmet. Helmets are required for anyone under the age of twenty-one and optional for anyone twenty-one and older. After everyone is situated on their bikes, our tour guides will take you to the park.

What if I have a New York Pass or Explorer Pass?

You can join our Central Park tours with the New York Pass and Explorer Pass! With the passes, you cannot make reservations for our bike tours. It is a first come, first serve basis. If you are concerned about getting a spot or want to ensure the tour is running, you can come into our store at 56 W 56th street and scan your pass the day before or earlier. We will reserve your spot as long as we can scan your pass in advance!

Do you need to be skilled?

Our bike tours are not strenuous. You will ride for about 8 minutes at a time before stopping and learning the history of the park. You will see important landmarks and notable features of Central Park.

What if I can’t ride a bike at all?

Unlimited Biking offers walking tours through Central Park! If you are concerned about your ability to ride a bike or just prefer to walk, this is a great alternative! Our walking tours leave from the same location (56 W 56th Street) and are perfect for less experienced riders. You still get wonderful information and a real insight into this historic park. We also offer pedicab rides! Pedicabs fit 2 to 3 people. With a pedicab tour, you can relax while our riders pedal for you on an hour long tour through heart of Central Park.

What do you see?

We like to show guests the highlights of Central Park. You will see Bethesda Fountain and Terrace, Strawberry Fields, The Literary Walk, and more!

Can kids join?

Kids are welcome to join our tours! They need to be able to ride their own bikes independently. For our Central Park tours, we do not allow children’s attachments. If your child can ride a bike, they can come along! If they are still learning, we recommend the walking tour. Children are required to wear a helmet.

Can I use an ebike on a tour?

If you would like, you can upgrade to electric bikes for the duration of the tour. Our ebikes are pedal assist, so you are still riding a bike, but you get more speed for your effort. Please note: we cannot guarantee that anyone else will be on an ebike for the tour, so you might have to go slower than you would like to stick with the rest of the group. To ride an ebike, you must be at least 16 years of age.
