New York City relies heavily on public transportation, so there are already going to be millions of people unintentionally participating

in Go For a Ride Day on November 22 as part of their every day routine. Even if you're taking your regular form of transportation, there are a variety of other modes to try that can give you a completely different experience. They're not all about commuting – some are just for the pure fun of it. Whether for business or pleasure, there are several ways to participate in Go For a Ride Day.

Take a cruise around the city

If you live in or around NYC, you've probably seen the view from the water while on the ferry, but taking a cruise is an entirely different view. On Go For a Ride Day, take a cruise around NYC where you'll listen to music as well as have plenty of food and wine. The views are quite beautiful – who doesn't love the NYC skyline at night?

Go sledding in Central Park

I'm convinced that I'm still going to want to go sledding even when I'm elderly. Should it snow on November 22, which is very possible especially considering we had a snowstorm on October 29, head over to Pilgrim Hill in Central Park to do some sledding. You can find the hill by looking for the bronze pilgrim statue, which was gifted to Central Park all the way back in 1884

Rent your dream car

Imagine cruising down the highway in a car so gorgeous you would contemplate fighting a bear to protect it – I'm talking a Lamborghini Murciélago Roadster, Ferrari 458 Italia, Rolls Royce Phantom or a variety of others. On Go For a Ride Day, rent the car you've always dreamed about and drooled over. Gotham Dream Cars has a variety of cars to rent that you will certainly never forget driving.

Take a helicopter tour

You've probably flown over the city at some point if you flew into or out of one of the nearby airports, but briefly passing over it is much different than taking the time to enjoy the sights. On Go For a Ride Day, take a helicopter tour over the city. You'll see the city in a completely different way and get to enjoy the experience rather than just hoping the flight you're on won't get detoured due to weather.

Get out of state

Should you decide you need something a little more than just circling over the city, celebrate Go For a Ride Day by getting out of the city any way you can. Hop on a train from Penn Station, take a bus from Port Authority, or rent a car and take a road trip. You can also take a flight to a warmer climate (the maximum November temperature in NYC is around 55 degrees) or you can even take a cruise up toward Canada.

Ride a bike on one of the many bike paths

There are so many bike paths all across NYC, so if you would like to stay local without taking cabs, subways or the bus, consider riding your bike down a few of the paths. Don't have a bike? You can always rent one and the equipment to go with it.

If you've been meaning to take a day trip, take a bike tour, get away for a week, or drive that dream car, consider Go For a Ride Day on November 22 your excuse to do so. After all, you only live once.
