I want to ride my bicycle - NY edition

I'll be in Manhattan from this weekend for a conference and some holiday time. I'm trying to keep up cycle training for a big event in two months. Are there routes around Manhattan where I can do some nice mileage while seeing some sights and feeling secure? Details within.

I'm trying to avoid the hotel fitness centre and the crushing oppression of staying in the same hotel as the conference. I'll be staying near Penn station for 5 days and then in the East Village for 3. I'm happy to use Citi Bike (I live in London where there is a similar scheme), but would hire a road bike if it was worth it. Essentially my question is: Are there nice routes not far from Midtown where I can cycle some miles without many cars or pedestrians? Thanks!
