You probably need to be a pretty advanced bicyclist to navigate New York City’s busy streets, but the city’s parks are excellent places for cyclists of all abilities.
If you shop around a little, you can usually find a two hour bike rental for under $10 and full day rentals for under $20.
Central Park Sightseeing offers bike rentals that include use of the bike, a helmet, lock, and basket. You’ll pick up your bikes at 56W 56th Street (three blocks south of Central Park).
