We have rent bicycles and went around Cantral Park with the kids for 2h30. It is nice except you can't go all roads. We went all around, may be 3h could be better .

Beautiful and a must visit place in NYC. Took a cycle rickshaw tour as didn't have enough time to go on foot. Saw majority of the park. It was overcast and cold the day we went. Summers will be awesome here. Must visit park though.
