Plus, a map and staff recommendations give you an even stronger idea of how to get around its 843 acres (341 hectares).

Good bikes - rude staff
The bikes were ok, but the staff is very rude - them seem to just be after your money! Choose a different company!

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Hired bikes to pedal round Central Park before heading to the airport for home.

The location is ideal for Central Park

We’d used their Washington DC location for a tour and had a money off voucher which was honoured.

We were told it would be around 10 mins wait when we paid, but that turned out to be 35. The bikes were ok, but not as well maintained as the DC branch - the gears on my 13yo’s bike were in need of adjustment - I had to re-chain it twice.

It’s an ok place, but not up to their DC standard

We had a great experience with the bike rentals for our family (2 adults and 2 children, ages 12 and 15). The location to Central Park was perfect and we enjoyed riding through the city and the park both. The bikes were easy and in good form, and the staff who helped us were all very great. Looking at other rental options, the prices here were also unbeatable. Thank you for making our trip to NYC so memorable through this activity.

Once we found the place (don’t search for the name on Google Maps as there are several companies with similar names within a mile of this one and you’ll wear yourself out before you even get your bike), we had a very good experience. Staff was very friendly and helmets and baskets were included in price (unlike the other 3 places we stopped at first). Returning the bikes was easy and again, the staff was very nice. Will definitely rent from them again next time!

Unfortunately, we noticed that the fee for bike rental would have been included in our New York Pass AFTER having paid the bill of more than 120 dollars for four bikes (3 hours plus insurance for bikes that have surely seen better days). Noticed "NY Pass" signs only when leaving the store and asked employee if we couldn't use our passes. He said we couldn't. When handing back the bikes at another Unlimited store three hours later we saw signs saying "NY passes accepted" and asked again why we couldn't have used the passes. Unlimited said of course we could have used them and that there must have been a "misunderstanding" at the first store. However, they refused paying us anything back since they "never do any refunds". As we had already paid they couldn't do anything about it. ???

Seemed like a reputable place to rent.
Prices are a bit high (compared to other places) but it’s better to pay a bit more to ensure that you don’t have issues along the way … unless you rent there …
We had issues with 2 out of the 5 bikes. One had the gears not aligned which prevented from using half of them and kept on derailing …
The other one had the brakes completely used and barely working, had no bell, no side stand and the seat could not be adjusted …

A little much when you are paying a higher price to avoid issues …

They gave me a bike with a loose derailleur. It came off half way through the ride when I switched gears. I almost got thrown off and luckily jumped off just in time. When I was in the store, another person came in with a broken bike. It was scary to see them giving these dangerous bikes to families with kids.

To return the bike, I had to carry the bike on my shoulders for 5 blocks to get a cab at the nearest park exit. The front desk staff held my ID hostage until I paid the $76 fee to fix the bike. The corporate staff told me it was my fault for not noticing the issue earlier.

What is a customer to do, expect a good quality product? Try not to get injured on a defective product? Not having to pay for the defect? Just avoid this place.

Bikes were okay (one could have done with a good drop of oil to prevent squeaking from brakes) but our main gripe was with the plainly uninterested long haired main that served us on Sat 19th March. It seemed like he'd prefer to be anywhere else other than in the bike rental shop. As a couple who both work in hospitality we love to see good service but also feel very strongly about poor customer service and when things aren't up to scratch. Very unfriendly and just downright rude when asked very straightforward questions.

We had 4 bikes, three of the where pretty good, one was crap. Ladys bikes are limited, had to wait for one. However, we would not go for a bike ride in Central Park again. There is only one big bike “highway” and you can not go wherever you want. We had the bikes for 4 hours but where more or less done with Central Park in 30 minutes. Where enjoying the view without using the bike the remaining 3 1/2 hours as the rest of the area not is easy to ride as a tourist. Would prefer to go for a long walk in Central Park next time.

Such a great way to get around and see the sights of central park. Roberto dealt with us at the shop, we returned the bikes 15 mins late but Roberto was ok. The bikes could do with servicing as a couple of them that we hired didn't change gear very well. We also hired bikes from the Brooklyn bridge branch, rode across Brooklyn bridge and back over Manhattan bridge, up to Union Square, back down Broadway to Little Italy, where we stopped for a pizza and finally back to the store. The cycle paths on the road are fairly well marked out and we felt safe using them.

I had the Big Bus Explorer ticket which included a tour with Unlimited Biking. When I emailed them to query booking, there was a discrepancy on the times of the tour printed on the Big Bus Tour website. A lovely lady rung me on WhatsApp as I did not have any mobile data due to being on a UK network who explained that the tour was only one tour at 9am. Unfortunately, we were too late to attend. However, she advised me to come to the store and hire a bike to explore by ourselves which we did. The bikes were easy to use, we had helmets and a bike lock. The rules of the road were quite simple and we went through all the necessary insurance procedures prior to hiring the bike. All the members of staff were really helpful and gave us a map, along with highlighting key attractions within the park. We had 2 hours which I think was not quite enough as we wanted to go at a more leisurely pace, stop and take photos etc. But we underestimated how long it would take us to cycle around so we did leave in a bit of a rush. Overall, a great company to deal with and would definitely recommend!
