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.

    Great efficient hire for 2 hour cycle round central park with 2 teens and a pre teen. 5 min walk with bikes to the park entrance. Could have cycled but because with children preferred to wait until we arrived at the park. Whole park easily cycled in under 2 hours at a leisurely pace with view stops. Bikes in good order and easy to ride. Great service. A real highlight to our holiday.

    Traveling for 4 days in New York City during the busy Christmas season and we needed a wheelchair to get a teenager around the city with a fractured ankle that occurred just prior to the trip. Contacted Cloud of Goods via their website and ordered a wheelchair without speaking to anyone, I was a little hesitant. As soon as my order was in I received an e-mail and a phone number from Richard Perez from the company and he took care of everything. He delivered the wheelchair to the hotel just a few hours after I ordered it and met me in the lobby. The wheelchair looked new and was the perfect size. When we left NYC, all I did was send him a text and he picked it up at the valet desk at the hotel. Richard’s customer service was nothing short of perfect !!

    The bikes that were available for free at our hotel were out the day we wanted to ride along the Hudson River Greenway and Empire State Tr. The Citi bikes looked like a real pain as you were supposed to check them in after 30 minutes even if you paid for a daily rate. Walked in to Waterfront Bicycle Shop 10 minutes after they opened. Had us on two quality bikes that looked made for what we were doing. Came with water bottle holders that could be easily tightened and loosened. A small pouch on front of both but he saw I had a backpack and he offered to to replace pouch with a basket. Basket was perfect as long as you don't have a heavy backpack. Gave us a lock in case we wanted to leave bikes and explore. Offered helmets but we declined. These bikes were so smooth, clearly maintained well. Gear shifting with lever with thumb. $25 for 3 hours or $35 for full day. We went for 3 hours. 22 mile round trip down to Battery Park to George Washington Bridge. Get on the Hudson River Greenway just across the street. If you wanted to get off and spend time at all the parks and sites, you could easily spend the entire day. We were just out for a cruise and their bikes were perfect.

    We picked this place as it was close to the hotel we were staying at and did not really trust the many bike guys grabbing you in the street.

    This place had good quality bicycles at only at $6 per hour with a free bottle of water too!! The shop is located perfectly to ride down the Hudson River or pop over to Central Park.

    We hired a total of 4 bicycles, a child, 2 adult men and a women's bicycle. All bicycles were branded specialized and were hybrid style (mountain bike style frame and road tires) except for the child bike which was more of a mountain bike and had front suspension forks.

    The staff were super friendly and helped us with lots of advice and greeted us with a smile each time we visited, even offered us more free bottled water upon our return.

    We had a blast seeing most of the park with Herbert, He was very fun and informative. We were riding as group of 3 pedi-cabs and all the drivers were sweet and funny. Definitely we'll do it again.

    ​We made a special trip back to this cute store after spotting it from our bus tour. We purchased a NY cycle jersey, and the staff were great. Service is a big deal for little shops like this, and we always try to support the "little guy" when shopping in big cities.

    What was originally a good way to explore nyc quickly went downhill today. Got my bike outside hotel no issue and road down to walll st this am to start tour with 1 hr to spare. Only caveat every station was full of bikes. Some that showed empty dock were full. Spent 1 hr driving to different stations to try and off load bike. Tour was starting they told o could not bring bike, in last ditch occurrence person took a bike from a full dock. So basically yoy can plan your trip, but if no open dock yoy are stuck.with bike until freed up! Fortunately my followup with citi got the extra 1 hr charge reversed ), but to much earlier anxiety that I'd miss my tour. Many other persons in area were trying to dock bikes too with same issues.

    Called in the morning, I injured my foot while in NYC, and still wanted to do some exploring. Scooter was delivered within 2 hours of my call. Price was amazingly reasonable. SAVED OUR TRIP

    My husband and I walked Central Park a few years ago. It was an entire day and we didn't get to see everything. We wanted to bring our 3 boys back with us. Cycling the park was a great way to explore...just stop at any point and enjoy the different sites. The shop was very convenient to the park entrance - a short walk and you are there! Our check-in was not ideal - the girl at the register was very rude (reason for 4 stars instead of 5) but the gentleman at bike return was extremely pleasant. We bought shirts for the boys - cool designs and great memento of our trip.
