We’re excited to have partnered with MSC Customs for our fourth year in a row to create a brand new, exclusive line of YOTEL bikes! Exciting stuff.
Mott Street Cycles has designed and customised three new single gear, co-branded models for 2015. Equipped with Revolights – an innovative, award-winning lighting system with LED lights programmed to detect speed and illuminate – these models will be added to the fleet of Cruisers that were custom-designed for us last year!
But wait, there’s more…
This year, your journey begins in Central Park! Maps with bike routes of the park are available, so start your ride by checking out popular destinations such as Central Park Carousel, Loeb Boathouse, and Strawberry Fields. Just visit Mission Control on ‘FOUR’ to book your bike for a small fee of $3, then head to Bike & Roll at Tavern on the Green (located at West 67th Street and Central Park West) in Central Park to pick up your ride. You can’t book in advance, and it’s first-come, first-served, so aim to get there early to avoid disappointment.
Please note: Bikes are seasonal, so are available April to September depending on the weather!

BIKE THE CITY SAFELY
- In New York City, cyclists must observe the same traffic laws as motorists, and are subject to the same penalties, so make sure you stop at every red light and never ride on sidewalks, expressways, or highways.
- Cycling is permitted on all main and local streets, even when no designated bike lane exists. When a bike lane is available, you must use it.
- Wear a helmet!
- Always ride with traffic, never against it.
- Take out your headphones so you keep your wits about you at all times and can hear surrounding traffic.
- If possible, leave at least three feet of distance between your bike and the nearest parked car to avoid a collision if doors are opened unexpectedly.
