Rental Information (NOT May 7th 2017-Bike NewYork 5BBT)
General Rental Info
We rent bikes and accessories so you can have fun in Central Park and all over the city. Or take a cruise along the Hudson River Greenway all the way from the George Washington Bridge (Little Red Lighthouse) down to Battery Park (Ground Zero), about 7 miles each way.
Our mountain and hybrid bikes are comfortable, well-maintained, and fun to ride. We also rent helmets and locks. (Ask about STI-equipped race bikes--at extra charge, sorry. See more info below "Road Bikes HQ."))
Not sure where to go? Take a guided bike tour of Central Park, Harlem, Columbia University and other areas, with historical commentary from Bike The Big Apple Tours.
What kinds of bikes? Many brands including Trek, Bianchi, Diamondback, KHS, and others. Choose by size and style, not by brand. By the way, the term "hybrid" is ambiguous, but we have so many variations that we probably have the style you want.
RESERVATIONS? We have s-o-o-o many bikes that we rarely take reservations, except if you have a group of 8 or more. Call us anyway, if you wish; we'd love to talk to you! We'll even pay for the call 800-300-3023.
GROUPS? We take care of groups, large and small, all the time! If you notify us, then we will be more efficient for you when you arrive. We can make special hours for your group, even if we are normally closed at that time.
PRICES? Our mountain and hybrid bikes are $6.99/hour to a maximum of $27.96 until 6pm the same day. Regular race bikes with STI are available only at "daily" rates, $59.99 up to 6pm. For overnights and multiple days, call 800-300-3023 for rates. (These rates are NOT available for the May BikeNewYork event known as 5BBT.) Also available are HQ road bikes (higher quality) with full or part carbon fiber frames or special components. You can guess that these cost more (they do.)
RENT OTHER STUFF: Helmet $3.99 /day (Click for free rental) Lock $3.99 /day Babyseat (up to 40 lbs) $12.99 /day (click for description) Child-pedal trailer (Trail-a-bike Tagalong) $19.99 /day (click for description) Car-trunk rack $24.99 first day & $2 ea addl Toeclips, SPD or Look pedals $4.99 (One-time, not per day.)

SPECIAL EXTRA CHARGES: For cleaning (For instance, if you take our bikes onto a sandy beach, we think you should pay for cleaning the sand out.) For damage (We like our bikes; please be kind to them.) For unannounced overnights (If we wait for you to come back, we feel pretty foolish when you just didn't care enough to tell us you were keeping the bike overnight, so please note this when you rent.)
Road Bikes HQ (High Quality)
Our fleet of road bikes now includes several all-carbon 105 bikes, a Klein Ultegra, Bianchi carbon/aluminum, and a custom LeMond Nevada City with straight handlebars. Please call for pricing on particular bikes. (Do you know your size? Kind of pedals? Well, call us anyway.) Toll free call 1-800-300-3023.
We have all sizes of road bikes, from 43cm to 61 cm, so we can be sure to fit you. (Do you know who Procrustes was? We are not like him.)
If you are handy and nervous, you can rent a roadside repair kit for flats and miscellaneous small repairs. Although customers rarely need them, some organized events require them. $4.99.
Terms And Conditions
Please leave a credit card for deposit and sign waiver of risk (adult over 18 is required for all rentals.)
Rates are for rentals returned THE SAME DAY before 6pm. 24-hour rental rates are higher than daily rates, and rentals kept past 6 pm without WRITTEN notice incur an extra charge of $15 per bike, over the 24-hour rate. Do not ride at night, because bikes are not equipped for night riding.
Have fun, but please don't abuse our rentals because you are accountable for any damage to the equipment! Bike type subject to availability.
Locks and helmets are available with bicycle rental at extra charge.
We have SO many rental bikes that reservations are not required, except for groups and for the BikeNewYork event the first weekend in May. (See special rental page for 5BBT.)
