The illegal bike hawkers who have been duping tourists into renting stolen bikes in Columbus Circle have waged war on the only legitimate bike rental company, violently harassing its workers.
Bike and Roll New York City, the only Central Park bike renter sanctioned by the city, told The Post that the illegal hawkers are so vicious, they have threatened to decapitate Bike and Roll’s employees.
“They’ve made threats to follow our staff home, to cut them, to cut their heads off. To hurt them,” said marketing manager Nicole Mylonas.
In the past month, staff members have had to call the police at least 20 times on the unruly bike hucksters. . .
