BEST BIKE PATHS ACROSS NEW YORK
I’m completely new to biking in the city with my family. Believe it or not, we’ve never owned bikes until last week when my husband and I bought our girls two bicycles. I knew that buying bikes was only step 1. Teaching them how to ride would take time and patience and what better time then during Summer vacation. Moe and I also got bikes from Sixthreezero and I thought it would be perfect to tie it in with this highly requested story. I’ve teamed up with Zillow to share a helpful guide to the best bike paths across New York.
