Governors Island Bikes and Surreys: Reopen in spring 2017
Thanks for another great season on Governors Island! We will reopen in spring 2017.
Governors Island, just a 7-minute ferry ride from Manhattan, is the perfect place to take a relaxing bike ride! Our rental fleet has something for everyone, including kids’ equipment and 4-seater Surreys. Come for the amazing views and a break from the hustle and bustle of the city, and stay to enjoy and explore the Island’s unique cultural and recreational offerings. Whatever your reason for visiting, a bicycle ride will help you make the most of your visit!
Pedal around the 172-acre, car-free Island to see public art, historic forts and buildings, and brand-new park features. Thirty brand-new acres of park have opened for the 2014 season, including new bike paths, gardens, and a Hammock Grove—which features over 1,500 trees, play areas for recreation, and hammocks for relaxation.
Blazing Saddles is proud to offer a FREE RENTAL program for bikes on Governors Island! Visit us Monday through Friday to get a free one-hour rental of our stylish cruiser bicycle, valid between 10am and 12 noon.
