TD Five Boro Bike Tour, NYC - postponed

New York City without cars!

The Big Apple without seeds is New York City without cars! It is THE one-day event: the famous Five Boro Bike Tour — equivalent of the Tour de l’Île de Montréal —, an early May tradition since 1977. You, your bike, the iconic Statue of Liberty and Empire State Building, and thousands of cyclists happy to have the keys to the city! You leave from the corner of Church and Franklin Streets and ride 68 km through Manhattan, the Bronx, Queens and Brooklyn and then - after crossing the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge - Staten Island, where the event winds up in a festive atmosphere. And so that you don’t miss anything in the city that never sleeps, your hotel is located in the Chelsea neighborhood, in Manhattan.
