Community Rides


I Challenge Myself’s Community Rides program aims to offer an opportunity for Northern Manhattan residents and anyone else, to use Citi Bikes to explore gems in Washington Heights, Inwood and Harlem.  We also hope participants meet some new friends, gain a deeper appreciation of bicycling and learn more about the Citi Bike Ride Sharing Program.


We will host six (6) Community Rides every Sunday starting October 9, 2022 to November 13, 2022, we will visit historical sites and community organizations, to really see the rich culture and history of Washington Heights, Inwood and Harlem, all while staying fit, being active, and environmentally conscious. Each ride ends with a free meal at local restaurants. Rides will run 5 to 10 miles. Participants will also gain skills as a cyclist to stay safe riding on the streets of Manhattan during and after the program ends.

This program is not meant to teach individuals how to ride a bike.  The only requirement is that participants need to have basic riding skills and be in good physical health to complete the rides.  

You can practice different cycling drills and get tips from expert cyclists to improve your cycling abilities, as well as learn the best safety practices to keep you safe on the streets of NYC.


Bike Rides, Food, and Tours of Washington Heights, like never before!

Join us for a 6-week series of riding, seeing and tasting the wonders of the Heights. All while you get fit, have fun & learn to cycle on the streets of NYC.

Citibike access and helmets provided for every ride!

All rides will end with free food from a local neighborhood vendor.

Open to: all rider levels ages 18+
