Bottom line is that we will be able to hit all three states on our bikes. Airfare is relatively cheap and flying with your bike is cheap as well.
The Boro ride is a once in a life time ride and these three states are so close to each other and have such great bike paths and adventures that we will incoorperate a three state adventure. Who knows what ROTR will encounter and get involved with!!
Join us as we roll through every borough of New York City on streets totally free of traffic—for one day, the roads are yours, the bridges are yours, the city is yours! The Tour is the world's largest charitable bike ride. There are more than 30,000 participants from all over the world that meet in Lower Manhattan, and cycle the NYC Five Boros. The route is 40 miles long and has been made completely car-free for this event. Biking in New York can normally be quite a challenge due to the heavy traffic. However, during the Five Boro Bike Tour you will not be bothered by this. It is a unique way to discover the different boroughs of New York on bikes with out traffic.
The Five Boro Bike Tour starts at Bowling Green, close to the One World Trade Center in Lower Manhattan. Cycle towards the north of Manhattan and cross the green Central Park. Via Harlem, cross the water to The Bronx, then head south on the freeway of the east side of Manhattan. Cross the East River via the Queensboro Bridge and discover Queens and Brooklyn. You will be amazed by the great contrast between the different districts. Then you will brave the longest suspension bridge in the United States: the Verrazzano-Narrows Bridge. The view from here is magnificent! The bridge ends in Staten Island, the last neighbourhood of this bike tour.
After reaching the finish on Staten Island unwind at the Finish Festival. Enjoy the live music, food, and drinks. Back to Manhattan? Take the free Staten Island Ferry. Don’t forget to photograph the Manhattan skyline and the Statue of Liberty.
