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!

I joined a Bronx tour with Marc leading and Louis supporting. Though the Bronx is far from the most picturesque part of NY, the tour was super interesting. Some highlights for me were Poe's Cottage (and Marc's wonderful poetry reading!) the street art and the...More

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.
