Less glamorous than the Upper East Side and less boho than Greenwich Village, Midtown Manhattan is still a must-see that's packed with historical and new attractions. Rather than explore randomly by yourself, let a guide take you directly to the sights that matter. See long-time landmarks, the Empire State Building, and more; and admire new showpieces such as The Vessel's staircases and elevated High Line park.

From Central Park to Brooklyn Bridge to Ground Zero, we'll see it all! This is not a tour for beginner cyclists. This a tour for confident, urban cyclists. We'll cover around 25 miles (40 km) over 6 hours. The pace will be brisk but not back-breaking or exhausting. We'll stick to designated bike lanes, but please understand, we cannot do this exclusively. This a tour for the adventurous of spirit. You'll see so many of NYC's most iconic spots and as they were intended to be seen: from the street. We'll take lots of breaks where you can get off the bikes, walk around and I will find you lots of photo ops to make you Instagram feed POP! I'll keep you safe and you'll never risk wasting time getting lost. I'll also keep you entertained and provide history, context and local color. By the end of the day, you'll feel the burn, but be ready to feast in one of NYC's great restaurants—guilt free, you earned it!
