Not all bike tours are created equal. Since 2001, the expert, experienced, professional guides of Bike the Big Apple have been safely taking guests far off the "beaten path" - in all 5 boroughs! With us, you will venture into real ethnic neighborhoods, and experience what life is like beyond the skyscrapers. In fact, we are quite proud to still be the only company to do bike tours of our beloved Bronx - seldom seen by visitors to the city.Why take a bike tour? Walking tours are severely limited in the distance they can travel; you are either going to visit a very small area of the city, or spend half of your day underground. Bus tours can cover plenty, but you are completely removed from the neighborhoods by glass. On bike, you can cover much and still get a real "feel" for the neighborhoods we take you to.Come ride with us!

What an amazing day! This was the highlight of my trip to NYC. Marc was an amazing guide: he took us to some amazing places and told us even more amazing stories, poems and history. An amazing experience.

The tour took place on Sunday evening, so traffic was at a minimum which made the whole thing a lot safer and "comfortable". The tour was wonderful - we went to lots of areas that would otherwise be missed and saw lots of "off-beat" things...More
