Private Central Park Tours
Bike and Roll offers customized, private bike tours and events for groups both large and small all around New York and Central Park. The tours combine history, interesting stories, and a love for the city with a safe, enjoyable bike ride. We offer discounted group pricing for groups of 10 or more during the week and on Sundays. We provide participants with everything they need for a memorable experience — including a bike, helmet, maps and water bottles.
Groups may choose one of our standard tours, or work with our staff to design a custom tour. We offer flexible start times, tour lengths and ending locations. Custom tours can be arranged in conjunction with one of our tour specialists, and can include food, special exhibits and sites, and unique destinations.
You can upgrade your private tour by making it a premium E-bike tour. All the fun of our standard tours but less peddling. Small groups of up to 8 riders can explore the monuments, the national mall, capitol hill and more. There is a lot to cover in 3 hours and we can do it all. These Premium Private E-Bike tours are great for corporate outing, conventions, bachelor and bachelorette parties, birthdays, family reunions or just because it’s fun. It’s Electric.
Our tours operate at a relaxing pace and are for the “occasional” exerciser – we welcome anyone who is in sufficient health to comfortably ride a bicycle. Competent children 4’6” or taller may ride their own bike; toddlers and small children may accompany a parent or guardian on a trailer tandem or in a trailer carriage (child trailers that attach to an adult bike). We do our best to safely accommodate special needs – please contact us to discuss.
In the past, middle school students, corporate executives, campers, and octogenarians alike have enjoyed our tours as a part of team building events, school trips, Bar and Bat Mitzvahs, company outings, weddings, reunions, family vacations, and more.
We provide a comfort bike (or E-Bike), helmet, a bottle of water, and maps for each participant. Chose from one of our existing tours or we can help design a custom tour for you.
Private Tours Terms
Keeping your group safe is our highest priority. Helmets are required for all participants, and each tour begins with a tutorial on bike usage safety. Our bikes are maintained by in-house mechanics on a regular basis and our staff checks each rider for correct bike fit and comfort before taking off. Finally, to keep groups manageable, the participant to guide ratio is 15 to one or less for bike tours.
Our group tours can accommodate up to 400 participants. For safety reasons, larger groups are divided among multiple tour guides, so that each group is no larger than about 15 per guide. If you are not sure of the size of your group, you can reserve the tour with an estimate, and adjust the number later.
