“Take Your Life In Your Hands”
Reviewed 2 March 2013

There is a six mile loop, that, if you were the only person on the road, would be a beautiful ride, with endless attractions. However, the taxis, joggers, Lance Armstrong cyclists, children, dogs, stroller moms, and, yes, racoons, make the trip a nightmare. You cannot take your eyes off the road for a second; do so at your own peril. We saw two bloodied people on one lap. Take a carriage ride instead.

“Central park is beauty but the cab drivers were beast”
Reviewed 8 January 2013

My girls friends came from Italy and they went on one of the Central Park cab ride, the one with 3 wheel bicycle riding on a Central Park tours.
The Park is so beautiful and serene.They had funs until the cab driver made a pass on my friend by pressing himself very close to her legs . Being two girls in the cab with a complete stranger riding in the Centrak Park, they immediately got off the cab and walked back to hotel. Suddenly they were reminded that this is in NYC and such experiences had left them a very bad impression. And I will never reconmmend the cab ride to my girls friends again.

“Take a Carriage Ride!”
Reviewed 23 December 2012

Carriage Ride was awesome . Beautiful Horses, very well kept and knowledgable drivers!!! Will do it again! Just do not like the harassment of people who would choose not to ride.. They really cross the line and are rude.but you can simply ignore them...

“Central Park by bike”
Reviewed 5 November 2012

Travel miles & see the Park, about 6miles around & then visit the trails & attractions. beautiful! Trees & landscaping restored to original beauty. get views of mid town, & skyline, better than taking a carriage ride. so relaxing & great exercise, u can ride for miles & not realize how far u have gone!

“A busted bike nearly foiled my plans...”
Reviewed 31 July 2012

The staff is perfunctory but efficient. You retrieve your own helmets from a bin (they're not required for over 16s, and most adults don't wear them). The bike had a bent sprocket which I failed to notice until it peeled away from the bike about 25 blocks from the rental station. However, they sent a repairman to deliver a replacement, so I was on my way. Crisis averted. All in all, with a $20 Groupon for a half - day rental, it was a good day.
