About the Event
Bike New York is a non-profit organization that promotes and encourages bicycling and bicycle safety through education, public events, and collaboration with community and government organizations.
On the first Sunday in May, 32,000 cyclists of all skill levels come from around the world to roll through every borough of New York City on streets totally free of cars. There is no better way to experience the Big Apple.
The Tour is a 40-mile five borough recreational (not a race) ride through New York City on closed roads. The Tour will be 41 years old this year and attracts 32,000 participants. It is the largest event of its kind in the U.S., and kicks off the spring bicycling season. The tour is a rain-or-shine event through mostly flat streets, bridges, highways and parks. The ride heads north through the heart of Manhattan to Central Park and continues on to historic Harlem and the Bronx, returning south along the East River on the FDR Drive. From there it crosses into Queens and then Brooklyn, where cyclists take over the highway before making the thrilling climb up--and down--the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge to Staten Island.
