I've never seen that tour company Bruce, thanks for the heads up. It's always nice to have a couple recommendations when family and friends come into town. I'm always referring them to Get Up and Ride in Brooklyn since I'm a Brooklynite myself and have gotten amazing feedback. Check them out at http://getupandride.com. I'm really looking forward to trying their new sunset bike tour and rustic dinner bbq in May.

One of the joys of living or visiting New York is to rent a bicycle in Central Park, and bring a picnic lunch with a bottle of vino. Let the sun shine in. And later in the afternoon keep your aerobic muscles working by taking a walking food tour; http://walkingtoursmanhattan.com
