All three units of Gateway-- Staten Island, Jamaica Bay and Sandy Hook-- are great places to ride your bicycle.
Don't have a bike? You can rent a bike at Jamaica Bay, at both Aviator Sports and Recreation in Floyd Bennett Field and from Wheel Fun Rentals at several locations, and also at Ray's Bike Rentals in Sandy Hook. Check out the maps below. (NOTE: Bicycles cannot cross several major bridges in the New York area.)
Always observe the rules of the road while riding your bicycle through Gateway. Wear a helmet and respect the rights of others using the roads and pathways.
