Manhattan - New York City Biking

Biking in Manhattan includes commercial (deliveries), commuting, and recreational. With time limited, we haven't yet done any biking in Manhattan, but all over town we were pleased to see so many dedicated bike lanes and CitiBike rental locations. When we do eventually bike, the paved trail options include the Hudson River Greenway which runs 11 miles from Battery Park to the George Washington Bridge on the west side, and the East Side Greenway running 9 miles from the Battery to 125th Street (with some gaps) on the east side. The two are linked by on-road routes, the Battery Bikeway and the Harlem River Greenway, creating a 32-mile loop around Manhattan Island together known as the Manhattan Waterfront Greenway. Many city parks have bike paths and trails - Central Park is closed to traffic on weekends and before 7 a.m. and after 7 p.m. on weekdays. 16 New York bridges allow bicycles, we visited the Brooklyn Bridge.
