Cycling through New York City sounds like a terrific idea but how exactly do you go about it? We'll show you the right way - and a few apps that could come in handy.
The Big Apple has plenty to offer. Packed with attractions, it is every visitor's dream. You don't even need to have a car to enjoy it. It is possible to cycle from Manhattan to upstate New York - if you have the stamina for it, that is. It's a great way to explore the US, avoid polluting the environment, and have loads of fun. You just need to find a decent bicycle and you're good to go. An app like Citi Bike will let you rent a good two-wheeler, find your way around town, and genuinely enjoy your stay.
Once you are all ready and set to go, you'll need to outline an interesting bicycle journey for yourself. A good map that works both on and offline will serve its purpose well. It should show you all the best routes and allow you to choose your adventure. You won't have to take any official tours but, instead, will be able to create your own. Bars, restaurants, parks, famous filming locations, and historic landmarks are waiting for you. More than a few night clubs are well worth visiting, along with some impressive sports venues.
Of course, like any true global metropolis worth its salt, NYC is packed with fascinating museums. Cycling from one to another will never be too difficult. You can visit world-famous places such as the Metropolitan Museum of Art or the Frick Collection, or you can get off the beaten path and search for something a lot more unique. Museum of Chinese in America (MOCA), Brooklyn Children's Museum, or the American Museum of Natural History are just some of many worth mentioning. They all offer a great chance to learn something new and really have hours of fun.
