Exploring New York City in an eco-friendly way just got easier with Mandarin Oriental, New York‘s latest initiative: a bike program that allows guests to champion environmental sustainability while discovering the Big Apple. This exciting new offering invites guests to “Bike the City” and leisurely explore the city’s attractions at their own pace, all while enjoying the complimentary use of a signature Specialized or Cannondale bicycle for two hours or an e-bike for one hour. With an extensive network of bike lanes and enhanced safety regulations, it’s never been simpler to explore NYC like a local and discover its scenic rivers, hilly parks, quiet neighborhoods, and historic landmarks.
Perfectly timed for the summer season and available year-round, this bike program provides an excellent opportunity for guests to embrace a sustainable mode of transportation and experience the city from a unique perspective. To further enhance their New York City adventure, travelers can opt for the “Central Park by Bike” room package, which includes a one-night stay at the Mandarin Oriental, New York and a two-hour guided private bike tour of the iconic Central Park.
After an exhilarating bike ride through the park, guests can choose to enjoy Central Park from a different vantage point, such as the hotel’s MO Lounge. This exquisite lounge offers floor-to-ceiling windows that provide a breathtaking bird’s eye view of the sprawling 843-acre park and the iconic New York City skyline. Alternatively, guests can unwind with a spa treatment or take a refreshing dip in the hotel’s pool, which overlooks the majestic Hudson River.
This exciting bike program not only allows guests to enjoy the vibrant city while embracing sustainability, but it also aligns with Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group’s commitment to environmental responsibility. The hotel has implemented various sustainable initiatives, including the removal of all single-use plastics, responsible procurement of agricultural commodities and paper products, the use of wooden room key cards, the addition of an electric house car to its fleet, the establishment of an herb garden, and the offering of locally and sustainably sourced menu items. Furthermore, Mandarin Oriental, New York actively supports local communities through volunteer programs and other community-driven initiatives.
By introducing this bike program and incorporating sustainable practices throughout its operations, Mandarin Oriental, New York sets a positive example for the hospitality industry. This innovative initiative not only allows guests to explore the city in an eco-friendly manner but also encourages others to consider sustainable alternatives and make a positive impact on the environment.
