The Bowery Hotel is going green - in a red sort of way.
The downtown hipster hotel is rolling out a new amenity for guests: free bikes.
Painted red and fit with a basket the bikes will be available first-come, first-served to hotel guests. Each bike comes with a helmet, lock, and the hotel's “Bowery Boy” logo.
Guests may want to download a copy of the free 2009 edition of the New York City Cycling Map , which was released earlier this month.
