Top 5 bites while you bike in NYC

Fuel up at these stops when you bike in the Big Apple

  • Doughnuts at Dough

    If you’re going to cheat on your diet, try one of these doughnuts. Dulce de leche, blood orange with candied bits, lemon poppyseed—these fluffy pillows are big enough to be a “main.” (305 Franklin Ave., Brooklyn)

  • Pizzas at Grimaldi's Pizzeria

    Zagat votes this joint under the Brooklyn Bridge best NY pizza, year after year. Is it the coal-fired brick ovens, the crust baked at 1,200°F, the 100-year history? Get there early; there’s always a lengthy queue. (1 Front St., Brooklyn)

  • A pint at Ulysses’ Folk House

    Pony up to the 40-metre-long bar at the end of your bike tour and order an award-winning Guinness or a seasonal beer (i.e. pumpkin in the fall). (95 Pearl St., Manhattan)

  • Pretzels at Pretzel Carts

    Soft, chewy pretzels dotted with chunks of rock salt have been flogged on New York streets since 1820. Now they’re far beyond the classic—look for them with dipping sauces from garlicky goat cheese to cheddar truffle.

  • Veggie dishes at Bliss Café

    Just a few blocks from the hipster-saturated strip on Bedford is this boho-shabby vegetarian spot. Curried tofu, cheesy burritos, Portobello zucchini sandwiches, soups and smoothies gave us lunch fuel. (191 Bedford Ave., Brooklyn)
