The Five Boro Bike tour is an annual event where the streets are shut down for cars and opened for cyclists! On May 1st, TD in conjunction with the City of New York invites cyclists of all skill levels to enjoy the city without worrying about cars. This event encourages biking as a healthy and sustainable habit and means of transportation. Funds raised for the event benefit free bike education programs that help teach children and adults vital biking skills.
