TD Five Boro Bike Tour is an annual cycling event held in New York City on the first Sunday of May. This year’s event will be held on Sunday, May 5, 2024. It’s the biggest charitable bike ride in the world, with over 32,000 participants riding through all five boroughs of the city: Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, the Bronx, and Staten Island. The route is about 40 miles (64 km) long and crosses five major bridges.
The tour is organized by Bike New York, a non-profit organization that promotes cycling in the city. Proceeds from the tour go to fund Bike New York’s education programs, which teach people of all ages how to ride a bike safely.
The 5 Boro Bike Tour is a great way to see New York City from a different perspective. You’ll get to bike through some of the most iconic landmarks in the city, such as Central Park, Times Square, and the Brooklyn Bridge. And since the streets are closed to cars for the day, you can relax and enjoy the ride.
