The Hamptons is one of the most scenic regions in New York state for biking. If I had to pick one way to explore the beauty and bounty of the East End, I would venture off on two wheels. A great perk of staying at one of several Hamptons hotels is complimentary access to their own bikes.
Skip the busy traffic and parking woes by traveling through the charming towns and villages on a bicycle. Here is a selection of Hamptons hotels that offer complimentary bicycles for guests to use.
Barons Cove, Sag Harbor
Baron’s Cove on Water Street is just a few minutes’ walk away from the heart of historic Sag Harbor Village. This gorgeous, nautical inspired hotel has an onsite restaurant that serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner, saltwater pool just across from the marina, and complimentary tennis court sessions. Baron’s Cove also extends guests the opportunity to cruise around on their complimentary bicycles. Head to nearby Havens Beach or cross the bridge and explore the peaceful countryside of North Haven.
