Architecture on Wheels

Central Park may have an overwhelming number of sights to see, but if history and architecture are your biggest passion you should definitely do the Architecture on Wheels Bike Tour with Unlimited Biking.

Led by an architectural historian, this tour features an in-depth exploration of Central Park’s architectural wonders, highlighting its symbolic and artistic elements. You’ll learn about the history of the landscape that shaped the design of the Park.  So if you ask yourself if Central Park is man-made? All the lakes and ponds in the Park contain water no different from your kitchen sink or bathtub. So it can be turned on and off. Central Park is designed to improve the public health and water features were a key component.

The Architecture on Wheels Bike Tour is perfect for people who wish to have a greater understanding of the era in which the park was constructed and those who have influenced its structure.

After years of debate over the location, the park’s construction finally began in 1857, based on the winner of a park design contest, the “Greensward Plan”, of Frederick Law Olmsted, the park superintendent, and Calvert Vaux, an architect. Frederick Law Olmsted and Calvert Vaux beat out 32 competitors. The open contest was very specific: It had to have a parade ground, a principal fountain, a lookout tower, a skating arena, four cross streets, and a place for an exhibition or a concert hall. Olmsted and Vaux seamlessly designed a naturalistic landscape hitting all those notes: Sheep Meadow, Bethesda Fountain, Belvedere Tower, the lake, and the sunken traverse roads in the park’s center.

This sound interesting? If you want to know more, join us for a historic look of this beautiful park and its iconic landmarks amid modern Manhattan.

Make NYC your Personal GYM

You’re not interested in a gym membership, but you want to workout anyway? Not in a small building with 100.000 other sweaty people, but outside in the fresh air? So we have the best solution for you. You don’t have to join a gym to be physically active. Instead, make NYC your gym by taking advantage of everyday opportunities to increase physical activity. For example, walk or bike to work or school or to run errands. Take public transportation and get off a stop or two before your destination and walk the rest of the way. Climb the stairs instead of using the elevator or escalator.  Or – even better – take advantage of our Unlimited Biking services.

You can rent a bike for a couple of hours or also for the whole day. With the bike you can explore the city and its beautiful sights. You will be so much faster with the bike and that’s why you can explore so much more!

But you can also do a Unlimited Biking guided bike tour with our fully-licensed tour guides. We offer the guided tour in different languages: English, French, Dutch, Portuguese, Spanish and Mandarin for a more comprehensive touring experience.

One of our most popular tours is the DELIGHTS OF BROOKLYN BIKE TOUR that highlights such iconic historical landmarks as the Lower East Side Tenement Building now a thriving area of downtown, the Brooklyn Navy Yard, a historical monument of New York City’s ship building history and the ever-changing Williamsburg area. Ending with an incredible view of the Manhattan skyline. Come and explore lower Manhattan on two wheels. The DELIGHTS OF BROOKLYN BIKE TOUR takes 2 hours and shows you all the highlights you definitely need to see. So remember to bring your camera! There will be spectacular views in all directions from the top of the Brooklyn Bridge.

Electric and pedal assist bikes: the latest fad or here to stay?

In English: 


Electric bicycles are gaining in popularity and it looks like they are here to stay! The growing popularity of electric bicycles allows them to develop very quickly in our modern cities. Even the most dedicated hipster fixie bike cannot deny the growing number of the worldwide sales of electric bicycles. Holland, a country already known for using bicycles as its main means of transport, has seen a huge increase in the number of electric bicycles on the roads. In 2009, Dutch bicycle shops saw sales of electric bicycles exceed those of standard bicycles. In order to understand the future of electric bicycles, it is also very important to understand the bicycles themselves. In general, electric bicycles come in three different styles: engine assist, pedal assist and electric accelerator.

The engine assist is a combination of the three styles, it allows the user to engage the engine to give more power to the pedal, to accelerate without pedalling, to disengage the engine and to ride only with the power of the legs.
Pedal assist is the most widespread system and seems to be becoming the most popular. The pedal assist system engages the electric motor only to help the pedals to give power. Most pedal assist kits and bicycles offer the user different levels of assistance by the electric motor. Pedal assist systems offer a smoother transition from traditional pedal-only bicycles to pure acceleration bicycles, which is indicative of their popularity. Users can still feel the benefits of reaching their destination with their own pedal power, with a little extra help. In addition, most systems are designed with a removable battery pack for easy charging, and the actual motor is located either in one of the wheel hubs or in direct connection with the drive system.

The growing electric bicycle market influences all aspects of cycling. E-bike options are increasing as major bicycle manufacturers, such as Trek and Giant, enter the e-bike market. For many, electric bicycles offer the opportunity to have fun, commute to work and visit new places. Not everyone is an athlete and many live in places where geography does not lend itself easily to cycling. Electric bicycles have the potential to open up recreational and utilitarian cycling to a much larger population, such as a person who dreams of commuting to work, but who simply does not have the physical fitness or has too many hills to get there. Many parents who would like to take their children for a bike ride are intimidated by the idea of pulling a children’s trailer by bike.

I think we will see more and more people riding electric bikes around the world over time, because electric bikes are not a threat to traditional bikes. According to the reports, it is expected that by 2023, 34 million electric bicycles will be used in the metropolitan transport landscape. In Europe and the Asia-Pacific region, electric bicycles are widely used to preserve the ecological balance of the environment and avoid increased pollution of vehicle engines. Electric bicycles also support the desire to solve the congestion problems resulting from increasing urbanisation. In addition, electric bicycles, used in Western Europe and North America, are also an innovative trend, especially among the youngest. Electric bicycles are seen as a more practical alternative in terms of urban mobility. The increasing use of high-quality and affordable lithium-ion batteries is making a significant contribution to market trends in the promotion of electric bicycle models. The increase in the number of users also increases safety rules to protect cyclists in cities and other regions. As a result, concerns are rising sharply about simultaneous urban planning needs, such as public transit systems, traffic lanes and traffic lights, particularly for electric cyclists. In the United States, it would be increasingly useful to inform citizens about the importance of renewable energy for a cleaner and healthier environment, not only for the people of that generation, but also for future generations who will inherit the earth.

En Français : 

Les vélos électriques gagnent en popularité et on dirait qu’ils sont là pour rester. La popularité croissante des vélos électriques leurs permet de se développer très rapidement dans nos villes modernes. Même le fixie hipster le plus dévoué ne peut nier le chiffre croissant des ventes mondiales de vélos électriques. La Hollande, un pays déjà réputé pour son utilisation du vélo comme moyen de transport principal, a connu une augmentation spectaculaire du nombre de vélos électriques sur les routes. En 2009, les magasins de vélos néerlandais ont vu les ventes de vélos électriques dépasser celles des vélos standard. Afin de comprendre l’avenir des vélos électriques, il est important de comprendre les vélos eux-mêmes. En général, les vélos électriques se déclinent en trois styles différents l’assistance au moteur, assistance aux pédales et l’accélérateur électrique.

L’assistance au moteur est le mélange des trois styles, elle permet à l’utilisateur d’engager le moteur pour donner plus de puissance à la pédale, d’accélérer sans pédaler, de désengager le moteur et de rouler uniquement avec la puissance des jambes. L’assistance par pédale est le système le plus répandu et semble devenir le plus populaire. Le système d’assistance de la pédale n’engage le moteur électrique que pour aider le pédalier à donner de la puissance. La plupart des kits d’assistance à la pédale et des vélos offrent à l’utilisateur différents niveaux d’assistance par le moteur électrique. Les systèmes d’assistance aux pédales offrent une transition plus fluide entre les vélos traditionnels à pédales uniquement et les vélos à accélération pure, ce qui est révélateur de leur popularité. Les utilisateurs peuvent toujours sentir les avantages d’atteindre leur destination avec leur propre puissance de pédale, avec un peu d’aide supplémentaire. De plus, la plupart des systèmes sont conçus avec un bloc batterie amovible pour une charge facile, et le moteur réel se trouve soit dans l’un des moyeux de la roue, soit en liaison direct avec le système d’entraînement.

Le marché en croissance du vélo électrique influencent tous les aspects du cyclisme. Les options de vélos électriques sont de plus en plus nombreuses à mesure que de grands fabricants de vélos, tels que Trek et Giant, entrent sur le marché des vélos électriques. Pour beaucoup, les vélos électriques offrent la possibilité de se divertir, faire la navette entre la maison et le travail, et de visiter des nouveaux lieux. Tout le monde n’est pas un athlète et beaucoup vivent dans des endroits où la géographie ne se prête pas facilement à la pratique du vélo. Les vélos électriques ont le potentiel d’ouvrir le cyclisme récréatif et utilitaire à une population considérablement plus importante, telle qu’une personne qui rêve de faire la navette pour aller au travail, mais qui n’a tout simplement pas la forme physique ou qui a trop de collines pour s’y rendre. De nombreux parents qui aimeraient emmener leurs enfants faire une balade à vélo sont intimidés par l’idée de tirer une remorque pour enfants à vélo.

Je pense que nous verrons de plus en plus de personnes faire du vélo électrique dans le monde avec le temps, car les vélos électriques ne sont pas une menace pour le vélo traditionnel. Selon les rapports, on prévoit que d’ici 2023, 34 millions de vélos électriques seront utilisés dans le paysage des transports métropolitains. En Europe et dans la région Asie-Pacifique, les vélos électriques sont en effet largement utilisés pour préserver l’équilibre écologique de l’environnement et éviter une pollution accrue des moteurs de véhicules. Les vélos électriques soutiennent également le désir de résoudre les problèmes de congestion résultant de l’urbanisation croissante. En outre, les vélos électriques, utilisés en Europe occidentale et en Amérique du Nord, constituent également une tendance innovante, en particulier chez les plus jeunes. Les vélos électriques sont perçus comme une alternative plus pratique en termes de mobilité urbaine. L’utilisation croissante de batteries lithium-ion de qualité supérieure et abordables contribue de manière significative aux tendances du marché en matière de promotion des modèles de vélos électriques. L’augmentation du nombre d’usagers augmente également les règles de sécurité pour protéger les cyclistes dans les villes et autres régions. Ainsi, les préoccupations sont en forte hausse concernant les besoins simultanés en matière de planification urbaine, tels que les systèmes de transport en commun, les voies de circulation et les feux, en particulier pour les cyclistes électriques. Aux États-Unis, il serait de plus en plus utile d’informer les citoyens sur l’importance des énergies renouvelables pour un environnement plus propre et plus saine, non seulement pour les habitants de cette génération, mais également pour les générations futures qui hériteront de la terre.

FUN FACTS ABOUT BIKES

Today we present you interesting facts about bikes – all you definitely need to know, so read on!

ABOUT THE HISTORY

First off all the term “bicycle” first entered into popular usage in France in the 1860s. But who is the bike founder? Although Leonardo da Vinci drew some rough sketches of a contraption that looked like a bicycle, the Frenchman De Sivrac built the first bicycle-type vehicle in 1690. It was referred to as a hobbyhorse. However, it did not have pedals. Those were added in 1840 by a Scottish blacksmith, Kirkpatrick Macmillan, who is credited with inventing the real bicycle. So far so good, but there is more you need to know about the bike, bicycle or velocipedes. What is a velocipedes? Before the word “bicycle” become popular bikes were typically called “velocipedes”. Maybe you have heard of the Penny-farthing before, an early type of bicycle that featured a front wheel significantly larger than the rear. The name comes from the old British Penny and Farthing coins which represent the large and small wheels. It’s enough history for a day.

ABOUT THE NUMBERS

Did you know that about 100 million bicycles are manufactured worldwide each year. There are roughly one billion bicycles in the world, about twice as many as motor vehicles and roughly half a billion of them are in China. Oh WOW! And another fact is that maintaining a bike annually costs twenty times less than maintaining and driving a car. So let’s take a bike more often! Also because the bicycle is the most efficient vehicle ever devised: a human on a bicycle is more efficient in calories expended per kilo and per kilometer than a train, truck, airplane, boat, car, or motorcycle. It is 3 times as efficient as walking. And it’s also a perfect way to save the environment. If Americans double their bike use to 2% of all urban trips, they would save 3.5 billion litres of gasoline annually. On a bicycle you can travel up to 1037 kilometres on the energy equivalent of a single litre of gas.

ABOUT THE HEALTH

Cycling three hours or 30 kilometres per week halves your risk of heart disease and strokes. So if you ride a bike every day it’s only about 4,3 kilometers per day – easy! And for all the woman’s outside: Women who walk or bike 30 minutes a day have a lower risk of breast cancer. And in general a study of nearly 2,400 adults found out, that those who biked to work were fitter, leaner, less likely to be obese and had better triglyceride levels, blood pressure and insulin levels than those who didn’t active commute to work. Also an adult cyclist typically has a level of fitness equivalent to someone 10 years younger and a life expectancy two years above the average.

And last but least for all the helmet haters and hair fetishist outside: Helmets have been found to be 85% effective in preventing head injury. So always use a helmet!

So let’s be serious, what are you waiting for?
