Biking

The best way to explore the city is by riding a bike as you can explore the city in ways that you could ever imagine by public transport or in a taxi. Biking is now more than ever a significant part of New York's transportation system as it’s estimated that 200,000 cyclists take to New York City’s 1,000 miles of bike lanes daily. And when the spring makes its appearance, the good weather is a friend of yours .So, you can move around the city on a bike admiring the city’s beauties and most important you can exercise and save money.  Among the many events New Yorkers will be able to participate in the National Bike Month, sponsored by the League of American Bicyclists and celebrated in communities from coast to coast. This event is the largest charitable bike ride in the country and a chance to showcase the many benefits of bicycling and encourage more people to give biking a try.
