Demo rides


Call today for a demo ride or lesson on a recumbent bike or trike: (646) 233-1219.

FREE Radical Design Solo Racer or Universal Racer* (value $135) to everyone who takes a demo ride AND THEN buys a bike or trike from us. (*depending on what we have in stock.)

Demo/lesson location: Eastern Parkway Greenway and Prospect Park, Brooklyn

We collect $100 per person for demo rides. Your $100 is credited in full when you buy a recumbent bicycle or tricycle from New York Recumbent Supply, whenever that may be. In addition, for 2017, we’ll also give you a free Radical Design Solo Racer or Universal Racer seat bag (value $135).

For both demos and lessons, we require that you sign a waiver and present ID and a major credit card.

For those who have never ridden a recumbent bike, we offer private lessons on a high-quality HP Velotechnik Grasshopper fx, HP Velotechnik Street Machine Gte, Cruzbike Quest, or other short wheelbase recumbent bike. Lessons and demos are given on the car-free Eastern Parkway Greenway and in Prospect Park, so you can safely try the bike on hills and curves and around other bicycles. Demos and lessons usually run 60-90 minutes.

You will be riding a valuable bike. We reserve the right to deny or cancel a demo ride for any reason whatsoever. The most common reasons for cancellation are bad weather and concern, based on observing how you handle the bike, that you might damage the bike, injure yourself, or hurt someone in the park or on the greenway. All demos are by appointment only and subject to bike availability.
