Where Every Month is Bike Month, NYC is A Cyclist's Dream

Where Every Month is Bike Month, NYC is A Cyclist's Dream

During Bike Month, NYC Welcomes Worlds of Cyclists

New York City is a cyclist's dream. Citywide bike lanes, inviting bridges, and miles of scenic park trails weave the five boroughs together like few places in the world. Best of all, May is Bike Month. NYC welcomes riders every day of the year, but cyclists of all skill levels take center stage at numerous events across town throughout the first real month of spring.

 

Take a Ride on Us

Here at Hyatt Union Square New York, we invite guests to enjoy complimentary bicycles for exploring the Big Apple. Our central Manhattan location puts you in the middle of it all, just a short ride from the Brooklyn Bridge, Williamsburg, Central Park, and waterfront paths along the Hudson River. Simply ask the Concierge for a map of city bike lanes, hit the path right in front of our hotel, and head to one of these fun-filled Bike Month events:
