Summer is here in Flushing, New York, and it’s time to turn those family biking dreams into a reality. New York City is the perfect place to take the kids and spend a day biking the trails, stopping at food trucks, and admiring the views. But wait, what if you don’t live within biking distance of these trails? Fear not, our team at Hitch King wants to outfit your vehicle with a custom bike rack, so you can tow your bicycles into the city and be on your way!
Best Places to BikeNew York City has no shortage of places to visit on your bike, but here are just a few of our favorites:
- Central Park – We couldn’t talk about New York bike paths without mentioning good old Central Park. If you’ve lived in the city for any amount of time, you know this one is all about timing. If you’re fortunate enough to avoid the horse carriages and tourists during your ride, the six-mile loop is downright serene.
- Governors Island – Take the ferry over to Governors Island for a unique view of Manhattan and Lady Liberty. This car-free island is a perfect escape from the hustle and bustle of the city.
- Hudson River Greenway – Spanning 11 miles, the well-traveled trail starts at the bottom of the island at Battery Park and stretches all the way up to Fort Tryon Park. Need a break? Take a breather with a walk around The Met Cloisters, a beautiful mansion filled with cool art and pretty gardens.
Custom Bike RacksA hitch-mount bike rack is a fantastic hitch accessory to have when you want to go biking regularly. Many cyclists get tired of the same old mountain path or roadway close to home, and want to be able to mix it up. A bike rack allows you to do just that. You can attach the rack, load your bikes, and be off to an exciting new destination each time.
