Rent a bike at Rock and Roll, on the Hudson River at the end of 44th Street (beside Circle Line Pier). Download a New York City bike map or order a free copy. From Rock and Roll, ride south about six miles to Downtown and the Brooklyn Bridge.

The bike and pedestrian entrance to the Brooklyn Bridge begins at City Hall Park. Unfortunately, the Hudson River Greenway does not connect to the entrance. So you have to meander up a few city streets to get there.

Pedestrians have one side of the walkway and bikes have the other. The bridge is about a mile across. You can stop frequently to enjoy the fabulous views.

Me and Frank take a break on the bridge.

South Street Seaport: A great place to stop for lunch! Be sure to ask for a bike lock when you rent your bike so you can stop at places along the way!

TLC's show, Ten Years Younger, was filming in South Street Seaport.

The Greenway is not marked through Battery Park. You'll need to follow streets near the water to pick up the Greenway again on the other side of the park. The Greenway also goes by Ground Zero.

We biked from 44th Street on the west side to downtown and back up to 21st Street on the east. Then we biked across Manhattan on a bike lane to return to the west side.

Bike a six mile loop in Central Park, plus take many trails across the park. See more of Central Park.

From the Hudson River Greenway (on the west side), take 77th street across to Central Park.
