Today’s Rider Recommendation takes us to the Hudson River Greenway!
The Greenway goes from the George Washington Bridge all the way down to the southern tip of Manhattan. Stretching over 11 miles, this car-free bike path is one of the best ways of exploring some of the most popular spots in the city:
- The Highline
- Times Square
- The Intrepid Sea
- One World Observatory
- and Pier 40!
But you will also pass some of the lesser-known highlights, like:
This quiet place allows you to enjoy the beautiful view of New Jersey across the water. The slightly cleaner air makes Hudson River Park always filled with locals practicing sports or simply hanging out.
Brookfield Place and Dock
Next to Harrison St, the bike path drifts away from the river and runs inland, along West St. If you decide to continue riding, you will be able to see the stunning view of the One World skyscraper just in front of you.
However, if you stick to the Hudson, you will discover one of the most amazing corners of this area of Manhattan: the Brookfield Place shopping center, constructed within a spectacular glass housing, and its dock.
If you decide to keep riding south, you will find beautiful and scenic Battery Park – the pinnacle of Manhattan, giving breathtaking waterfront views that you can’t leave without experiencing.
If you think you are ready to bike the Greenway, come to one of our stores and rent a bike with Unlimited Biking!
