WHAT IS THE DOMESTIQUE?
As a cyclist, The Domestique is something I would always look for when traveling. It is not always practical to take your bike on business trips and holidays, and airline baggage fees aren’t cheap, not to mention the hassle of packing and unpacking bikes.
The Domestique eliminates all of these problems by offering bespoke cycling tours, with a fleet of Specialized Tarmac carbon road bikes in various sizes, Giro helmets, pedals and bike nutrition, as well as expert guiding along NYC’s best routes.
20 minutes from NYC
You can experience roads like these just 20 minutes from lower Manhattan, with quiet rolling terrain, wide shoulders to cycle and quaint towns serving great coffee!
"Outstanding ride, outstanding guide, outstanding bikes - new 2017!! Highly recommended. Very safe. Perfect for all levels"
"Just back from a trip to NYC, where the highlight was undoubtedly our ride out on River Road with Jimmy the Domestique. Great bikes, fantastic route, with a great guide. What more can you ask?"
Jimmy Phillips is the founder of The Domestique, a boutique cycling concierge company based in New York.
Phillips started The Domestique for a simple reason: he'd always wanted a bike-for-hire service when he traveled. It was an instant hit. These days, international business people, curious New Yorkers and celebrities call up Phillips to be their sherpa. He'll show up at your door—or The Gansevoort hotel, where his bikes are racked—with a top-flight Specialized Tarmac loaded up with water bottles and snacks.
And if there's anyone you want to draft off, it's Phillips. He's an eight-time Ironman and was the first cyclist to Everest in New York City—climbing the elevation equivalent of Mount Everest—which took him around 15 hours and well past sunset.
