Bike the Promenade

From the day trip trip Picnic with the Past on Governors Island

One of the best ways to explore the island's 172 acres is by bike. You can bring your own on the boat or rent one on-site, at the Bike and Roll kiosk to the left of the ferry landing (Tip:Renters should arrive early in the day; wheels do run out). Once you're all geared up, you can patrol five miles of car-free paths, although the best route is the new 2.2-mile promenade that traces the island's edges, passing historic buildings, fantastic waterfront views of Red Hook and the Statue of Liberty, and the relaxing Picnic Point, a great spot to dismount and chill out in a red Adirondack chair. From $7/Hour; www.bikeandroll.com
