Cycling in New York

Posted on 20th March 2012 by

Cycling in New York is a very popular method of transportation , as well as a popular form of recreation. The city was actually the first in the nation to construct biking paths in the late 1800’s and today cyclists are visible everywhere you go in the city.

Aside from recreational cyclists and commuters, New York also has a large amount of bike messengers and delivery cyclists, especially for food delivery.

While bikeways unite almost every neighborhood in the city, on the streets, biking can be both fun and challenging. It’s a thrill to experience the streets of New York on bike, but since traffic is almost always congested and there are no specifically marked bike lanes, it may take some time before you feel comfortable biking in the streets.

In Central Park and others, traffic is cutoff on the weekends and at certain hours during the week to promote cycling. When you come and visit, you’ll find cycling in New York to be quite and thrill.
