Your Outdoor Adventure Awaits!

New Paltz Biking is conveniently located on the beautiful River to Ridge Trail. Park your car and get out on your bike in just minutes. There are two great trails to choose from.

The Wallkill Valley Rail Trail is flat and tree lined with shade. It is the perfect trail for families or folks who don’t want a strenuous ride. There are some amazing bridges with stunning views along the way.

The River to Ridge Trail has breathtaking views of the Shawangunk Ridge. This trail does require some uphill pedaling and it is in full sun…but its worth it! The views or the ridge don’t get any better.

Full day rentals are now available, so you can bring your bike to the Mohonk Preserve, Minnewaska State Park or the Walkway over the Hudson. If you plan on bringing our bikes to another location, a full day rental is required.

Wherever your biking destination is, you can get there with New Paltz Biking.

Frequently asked questions

Can I go anywhere in New Paltz after getting my bike or do I need to only stay on the rail trail?

We recommend staying on the trails. There are many great shops in New Paltz, but you are paying for the bikes by the hour, so you should plan on checking out the shops before or after your scheduled trip.

Are there any late fees?

Other customers are scheduled to use the equipment after you so we ask that you return by your scheduled end time. We charge $20 for every 15 minutes you are late.

What is your cancellation policy?

We offer full refunds if you cancel your reservation 48 hrs in advance. You can change your scheduled time and date up to 24 hours prior to booking if it’s available. No refunds or changes within 24 hrs of your scheduled appointment. 

If there is inclement weather during your scheduled booking, we offer you a rain check ; just email us with your preferred date and time for easy rescheduling.

What are the best biking trails in the area?

Two of the best trails in New Paltz are the River to Ridge Trail and the Wallkill Valley Rail Trail (AKA The Empire State Trail). NPB is located on the river to ridge trail and is a short ride on a trail to the Wallkill Valley Rail Trail. 

Other great local places are Minnewaska State Park, Mohonk Preserve, Walkway over the Hudson and the Ashokan  Trail.

These are the best bikes! We do our annual Wallkill Rail Trail to Rosendale. Craig is a super nice guy and the location is also best place to park for the day.

I own my own bike, but my friend rented from them and it was simple and easy. $10/hr, beautiful trail and friendly service. You get a bike and helmet and they are really nice in explaining the way to the trail. They also offer the tandem hitch for kids.

Had an amazing day with friends exploring the new trail recently opened off Springtown Rd courtesy of New Paltz Biking. I would recommend these bikes for anyone who wants to get out on the trails.

Matthew Rosenberger

Lucky to find NP Biking when we wanted to bike the rail trail in New Paltz and didn’t have a reservation for bike rentals at any of the places in town. They operate out of a trailer in the parking lot of the new River-to-Ridge trail head, so there was plenty of free parking (a rarity if you know New Paltz). They made sure to set us up with the proper sized bikes for us and they recommended a few points of interest worth looking out for along the trail. We would definitely rent from them again when we are in town.

Matt Feldman

Well priced and great service.We will definitely be back.
