Unlimited Biking is GFNY’s exclusive bike rental and has 400 Cannondale road bikes available, both aluminium and carbon.
Renting from Unlimited Biking is very easy:
Book your Unlimited Biking rental here: unlimitedbiking.com/events/gran-fondo-new-york-bike-rentals
Pick up at PIP Park, Fort Lee, NJ (at Hudson Terrace) on Friday and Saturday during packet pickup hours.
Return your Unlimited Biking rental bike directly at the GFNY Finish Village. After you cross the finish line on Hudson Terrace, get your medal & photo then follow the path to the Bike Parking area. Aside the Bike Parking, you will see Unlimited Biking flags, tent and staff waiting to collect your rental bike.
By bringing your bike to the race, you are sure to ride a bike in the right size, with the components that you prefer and in the condition that you as the owner maintain your beloved bike.

The lowest budget (free) option for a bike carton is visiting your local bike shop and picking up a carton box from a bike sale they’ve just made. Most bike shops just throw out the cardboard cartons and are happy for you to reduce their trash.
American Airlines and Delta now do not charge oversize fees for bikes, making it more affordable than ever to fly with your bike.
Luggage Free is providing you the option to send your bike ahead to your hotel, to Unlimited Biking, or to one of GFNY’s partner bike shops. Be sure to confirm and book the assembly and packing service with Unlimited Biking or the bike shop prior to shipping your bike - many bike shops are very busy during GFNY race week. You can also ship your luggage ahead. Book your luggage and bike shipping here: luggagefree.com/partners/gfny
Note that we do not recommend shipping your bike internationally. When shipping the bike internationally, you run the risk of the bike getting stuck in customs and potentially not arriving to the race in time. Instead, we recommend flying with your bike.
Unlimited Biking also offers Bike Concierge service. UB’s expert team will assemble and tune up your bike, so all you have to do is show up and race.
