“Bikes are as welcome and deserving of a place on the blacktop as they are on the greenways, and we’re empowering New Yorkers with that knowledge and the know-how to put it to use and rediscover their rights and their City.”

Registration for the world’s biggest charitable bike ride opens Tuesday, January 20th, at 12PM (noon) EST. The 38th Annual TD Five Boro Bike Tour will take place on May 3, 2015. On that morning, 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. From there, they will ride 40 miles through the five boroughs of New York City on car-free streets, including over the Queensboro and Verrazano-Narrows Bridges. Using proceeds from the Tour, Bike New York has, over the years, taught bike skills to tens of thousands of kids and adults throughout the five boroughs. The nonprofit’s bike education program is the largest of its kind in the country, and was cited by Bicycling as one reason the magazine named New York City the #1 Biking City in America for 2014, referring to students of Bike New York’s education programs as “law-abiding ‘roll’ models.”

“Since the first Tour in 1977, we’ve been reminding the world that the streets are public spaces,” says Ken Podziba, President/CEO of Bike New York. “Bikes are as welcome and deserving of a place on the blacktop as they are on the greenways, and we’re empowering New Yorkers with that knowledge and the know-how to put it to use and rediscover their rights and their City.”
