Friday Night Lights
This 7 hours bike tour begins by meeting your guide at the bike shop, then start with a ride through the Lower East Side traditionally the immigrant enclave of Manhattan, now one of the hottest spots for nightlife, where you will uncover the gritty remnants of the Bowery's late-night past and, as the weekend officially begins, pass by some of the city’s hippest hangouts. Here, you will see how the Five Point slums and tenements of the 19th century have meshed with modern New York.
In the Financial District, even after the final bell rings on Wall Street, there is no shortage of “suits” staying well past Happy Hour at the neighborhood’s swank steakhouses. This area has always been the place for nighttime revelry for New York’s rich and powerful, as the site of the first Dutch saloon of New Amsterdam and where George Washington celebrated the end of the Revolutionary War.
From the Hudson River waterfront, get a sensational view of New York Harbor and the Statue of Liberty. Veering inland, experience two of the most sought after neighborhoods, with a rich late night history of their own, as we spot the famed bars and cafés of the 20th-century counterculture movement in Greenwich Village, while keeping an eye out for celebrities arriving in limos at the chic clubs of the Meatpacking District.
A nighttime tour of New York would not be complete without a look at midtown’s dazzling skyscrapers and billboards. As we ride into the middle of Times Square and pause on its pedestrian mall, we’ll take in this homage to modernity and then you will be heading back to the bike shop.

Frequently Asked Questions
Do you have to be crazy to ride a bike in the big apple?
No, we do it all the time! On the other hand, if you do not know where you are going, you may very well end up riding in rush-hour traffic in midtown or downtown Manhattan (which can be not-so-nice).
What is the average age of riders on your tours?
We have riders of all ages on our tours! We have had children as young as eight with their parents, and adults of retirement age. However, there are no bike seats for infants available.
What happens if I have a problem on the ride?
Our staff has the tools and the knowledge to repair a flat or fix a minor mechanical problem. If you cannot complete the ride, we will arrange transportation for you and the bike back to the starting location.
