On Sunday, May 3, 2020, over 32,000 cyclists from every state in the nation and dozens of countries around the world will come together in lower Manhattan in support of Bike New York’s free bike education programs to ride the TD Five Boro Bike Tour. For one day, the roads are clear, the bridges are clear, the New York City is clear — there’s no better way to experience the Big Apple.
The nonprofit’s bike education program is the largest of its kind in the country—last year alone, more than 25,000 kids and adults learned bike skills. When you ride with Bike New York, you’re helping in a mission to empower more New Yorkers to grab life by the handlebars. The 43rd Annual TD Five Boro Bike Tour will take place on Sunday, May 3, 2020. Even though the tour isn’t until May, registration for the 2020 tour opens today at 12:00 p.m. (Eastern Time) and has traditionally filled quite quickly.
STANDARD – $112.00: You’ll be signing up for the ride of a lifetime, making it not quite “standard.” But you get the idea.
STANDARD + MEMBERSHIP – $152.00: Get all the Standard registration perks and become a Bike New York member! Tour-wise, this means a special rider packet pick-up line at Bike Expo New York, a beer garden at the Finish Festival. Membership also gets you some great swag (including a T-shirt and lapel pin), special members-only rides, tons of partner discounts, and much more that you can read about here.
VIP – $350.00: With VIP registration, you get all the standard registration perks, plus guaranteed placement in the first Start Wave, special VIP packet pick-up line at Bike Expo New York, official commemorative 2020 TD Five Boro Bike Tour registration jersey, handlebar bag by Manhattan Portage (meets Tour baggage requirements), timed climb over the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge, breakfast and entertainment at the Start, and access to exclusive VIP lounge & gourmet lunch at the Finish Festival.
The 40-mile, car-free Tour begins in Lower Manhattan (the Start line is at Franklin St. and Church St., with entrance points for each of the start waves running south along Church to Battery Park), heads north through the heart of Central Park, and continues on to Harlem and the Bronx before returning south along the East River on the FDR Drive. From there, cyclists cross into Queens and then into Brooklyn, where riders take over the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway before the heart-pumping climb up—and thrilling ride down—the breathtaking Verrazano-Narrows Bridge and into the Finish Festival on Staten Island.
