How To Get Your Kids To Bike Safely In New York City

Family Bike Ride

As summer approaches and you start to look at the long months ahead with no school for the kids, your first reaction may be panic! Keeping children occupied, interested and active during the summer months is a priority for all parents, but this can be a big challenge in New York City. Until now!

Blazing Saddles Bike Rentals has the perfect solution to keeping the kids engaged all summer long.


Our location on Governors Island is the perfect location to bring kids of all ages to bike. With the car-free bike paths, to the fun ferry ride to large selection of kids’ equipment, you can spend the entire day on the island knowing that the kids are safe and will be well worn out, but have also had the time of their lives. With so many paths and activities to explore on the island, you can take several trips out here throughout the summer and still see new things every time!


Our South Street Seaport is another great location to bring the family. You can follow along the bike path that leads you to the Brooklyn Bridge. You can ride across the bridge in a completely separate lane from the cars, so you can take your time and feel comfortable that everyone is safe. At the end of the bridge the newly renovated Brooklyn Bridge Park awaits with miles of bike paths to explore. After returning your bikes you and the kids can explore the South Street Seaport with new shops and restaurants opening all the time.


Our newest location at Pier 84 at the Hudson River Park is the perfect start to a day exploring the park. The Park offers all sort of kids’ activities throughout the summer months, including fishing lessons and kids’ movies, so bring the family, grab some bikes, and start exploring! Again, all of the riding in the Hudson River Park is on car-free bike paths, so everyone is safe – even the kids!
