GOVERNORS ISLAND: In addition to boasting dozens of arts and culture events in the spring and summer, Governors Island is one of the best car-free places to bike in the area.

Though the bike loop doesn't go around the whole island (at least not yet), it'll still take you through tree-lined trails, past grandiose mansions and old army barracks and by dazzling views of Lower Manhattan and the NY Harbor. Both the East River Ferry and free Governors Island ferries accommodate bikes, but you can also rent single and tandem bikes from kiosks on the island, plus they offer free one-hour rentals on holiday Mondays.
