About Bike Rentals - Blazing Saddles
Blazing Saddles is currently closed for the season and will reopen in Spring 2014
Founded more than 25 years ago and still family-owned and operated, Blazing Saddles offers self-guided bike tours with your choice of bicycles, ranging from hybrids to tandems and including everything kids could ever need to cycle. All rentals are good for 24 hours and including bike fitting, an orientation, detailed route suggestions, maps, helmets and bike locks.
The Performance Hybrid Bike is designed for riders who want to take leisurely rides and cruise around the city. Each bike has 24 speeds and disc brakes along with a deeply cushioned saddle with broad "sit-bone" support (especially helpful for those who don't ride very often).
The Comfort Tandem Bike is a bicycle built for two. There are many reasons riders might choose this setup: perhaps one partner has an injury and is unable to "keep up" on his or her own, you are accompanying an older child who doesn't want to ride her own bike, or you're a couple that appreciate the Woody Allen-esque romance of seeing the Manhattan sites from a tandem bike.
Kids Rentals at Blazing Saddles are comprehensive. Parents can rent baby bike seats, bike trailers, tag-along bikes (for kids ages 4 to 8) and children's bikes. All of these rentals come with free safety helmets and are available in both 20- and 24-inch sizes. Keep in mind it is not legal to bike in New York with children under the age of 1 year old. And children 13 and under are required by law to wear a helmet while biking.
Rentals are for 24 hours.
Did you know?
Half of all of a bicycle's typical parts are in its chain.
The term "bicycle" first entered into the pop-culture lexicon in France in the 1860s.
Anyone looking to explore New York on two wheels instead of four (or in lieu of walking) will appreciate the range of bicycles and add-on options at Blazing Saddles.
Good for kids?
Blazing Saddles is 100 percent kid-friendly, offering bike seats for babies, bike trailers (that hold up to two children each), tag-along bikes (for kids aged 4 to 8), children's bikes, and tandem bicycles for older kids who'll get a kick out of pedaling "with" Mom or Dad.
