The Hudson River Park Bikeway is the busiest in the United States. If you don’t have a bike of your own, you can also rent one in the Park.

The bike path runs the entire length of Hudson River Park from Battery Place at the southern tip of Manhattan to W59th St. where it connects with Riverside Park South. The path was built and is owned by the NYS Department of Transportation.

Overview

The bike path is dedicated to bicycles, skateboards and rollerbladers. Mile markers can be found every .5 miles. Bike racks are provided throughout the park.

Users should stay to the right and ride in single file for safety.

Please dismount bikes on all pedestrian walkways.

From dawn to dusk, this area is designated as a safe and open space for adults and kids alike to learn how to ride their bikes. Free bike education classses are available through Bike NewYork, who provides classes and programs throughout the summer for both children and adults.
