Five Boro Bike Tour 2016

On Sunday, May 1st, the TD Five-Borough Bike Tour will once again pass through DUMBO! The event, the largest cycling event in the United States, is held annually on the first Sunday in May. It’s a 40-mile, car-free bike ride that begins in lower Manhattan, continues into Harlem and The Bronx, runs into Queens, through Brooklyn, and ends with a Finish Festival in Staten Island!

Stops along the way include volunteer check-in stations, entertainment stations including musical acts, performance groups, and cheer zones, bike repair, water, restrooms, and food stations.

Proceeds from the Tour fund free bicycle education programs held by Bike New York.
