8 City Bikes to Park Under the Tree

Biria Bicycle Red

Not long ago, we profiled NYC bicycle commuter Diane Randall, who returned to cycling as an adult because she wanted to explore the city that she loves from a different perspective. Although she started off with a new mountain bike, a recently re-discovered photograph led her back to the Raleigh that she had received for Christmas from her parents more than 2 decades ago, and that she had kept in storage.  It just goes to show that the joy of receiving a bicycle as a gift is lasting, and it isn’t just for kids. In that spirit, we’ve posted 8 city bicycles that are sure to delight their grown-up recipients as they pedal into the new year. For easy shopping, each slide below includes a link to the manufacturer and the name of an NYC bicycle shop that carries the brand.
