I had the opportunity to attend the Central Park bike tour, which began on West Side 67th street near the Sheep Meadow. This tour started at 3:30 pm and ended at 5:30 pm, giving us two full hours of pedaling, talking, enjoying, and learning. Our tour guide was Mr. Chuck Krieger (left), whose knowledge of the park and agility on the bike kept us intrigued and entertained.
This 6-mile marvelous bike tour gave us the opportunity to learn everything about the area. Did you know that Central Park was entirely manmade? That’s right, every single tree and blade of grass was planted by human hand. Thanks to landscape designers Calvert Vaux and Frederick Olmsted, we are able to enjoy nature in the middle of New York City.
As we biked around the park, Mr. Krieger pointed out The Dakota, Cleopatra’s Needle, Bethesda Fountain, the public pool, Alexander Hamilton’s statue, and much more. We also visited a variety of stunning spots including the pond from the Stuart Little movie, Jackie Kennedy Reservoir Oasis (breathtaking view), the Harlem Hill, and Central Park’s public pool.
As the bike tour came to an end, we visited the Swedish Marionette Theater and Shakespeare’s Garden; a gorgeous spot full of colorful flowers and plants. To get a better view, we climbed to the peak of Belvedere Castle, which overlooks the Great Lawn (holds up to 1,000,000 people!)
Our journey concluded at the Strawberry Fields, where the story and legend of John Lennon will always be remembered.
Bike and Roll has friendly and knowledgeable employees that will make you feel comfortable and welcomed. Our bikes and helmets were measured to our exact size and height, making our bike tour that much more pleasant.
Although there are more stories that I should tell you about, I rather leave the rest for your imagination. I recommend that you come and experience a day full of fun, fitness, learning, and entertainment. Call Bike and Roll and make your reservations today!
