May 6 is the day. Then the 35th edition of the annual 40 mile long cycling tour through New York City is held.
Held annually the first Sunday in May, the Five Boro Bike Tour is America’s largest cycling event. The Tour is produced by Bike New York in association with the City of New York and the New York City Department of Transportation. The event provides participants the unique and fun experience to bike through all five boroughs – a 40 mile, traffic-free ride for 32,000 cyclists.
Manhattan, The Bronx, Queens, Brooklyn and Staten Island are all on the route! Starting just north of Battery Park, the tour runs up Manhattan, through Central Park, around a brief loop in the Bronx and down to the Queensboro Bridge passing countless New York City icons on the way. The tour lands on Staten Island for a lively outdoor Festival, including bike demos, giveaways, games, food, product samples, stretching, massage, photo booths, and official Bike New York merchandise on sale.
