When is it good weather for the activity: Biking in Central Park, NY?
Bicycling

Central Park has a 6-mi circular drive with a couple of decent climbs. It's closed to automobile traffic from 10 am to 3 pm (except the southeast portion between 6th Avenue and East 72nd Street) and 7 pm to 7 am on weekdays, and from 7 pm Friday to 7 am Monday. On holidays it's closed to automobile traffic from 7 pm the night before until 7 am the day after.

The bike lane along the Hudson River Park's esplanade parallels the waterfront from West 59th Street south to the esplanade of Battery Park City. The lane also heads north, connecting with the bike path in Riverside Park and the promenade between West 72nd and West 110th streets, and continuing all the way to the George Washington Bridge. From Battery Park it's a quick ride to the Wall Street area, which is deserted on weekends, and over to South Street and a bike lane along the East River.

The 3.3-mi circular drive in Brooklyn's Prospect Park is closed to cars year-round except from 7 am to 9 am and 5 pm to 7 pm on weekdays except holidays. It has a long, gradual uphill that tops off near the Grand Army Plaza entrance. (Biking around Manhattan streets next to the dense traffic is best left to messengers and seasoned cyclists.)

1 American Trash
American Trash
1471 1st Ave.
New York, NY 10075

You might tell from the name that this isn't exactly your granddad's UES drinking establishment. Bicycle tires, golf clubs, and other castoffs cover the walls and ceiling, ensuring that the 20-year-old Trash, a sanctum of sleaze, merits its descriptive name. Eight plasma TVs, three video games, a defiantly rock-and-roll jukebox, and a pool table keep the neighborhood crowd (as well as stray bikers who hate them) busy. Some nights local bands play classic rock. www.americantrashnyc.com. Subway: 6 to 77th St.
