5 Boro Bike Tour 2011

Sunday, May 1st. Over 30,000 cyclists. 42 miles of road closures.
It starts in Battery Park at 8 am. Here is a link to the list of streets forming the route. Basically, it slices all of Manhattan in half (along Church and Sixth Avenue) all the way up to Central Park. It pops back out on the northern end at 110th in Harlem and continues up along A.C. Powell Blvd (Seventh Av) to 135th, makes a right, then a left unto the Madison Avenue Bridge into The Bronx. Then it's 138th to Third and right back into Manhattan. Down the FDR Drive to 63rd, over the Queensboro Bridge, up 21st to Astoria Park, back down Vernon and over the Pulaski Bridge. McGuinness. Greenpoint. Franklin. Kent. Flushing. Navy. York. Gold. Front. Old Fulton. Columbia. BQE at Atlantic. Belt Parkway. Exit Fourth Ave. 101st. Fort Hamilton. 92nd. Verrazano Bridge. Fort Wadsworth. Bay. Hylan. Edgewater. Hulbert. Hannah. Bay. Staten Island Ferry back to the starting point. Steer clear of these areas all day long. Before you begin each fare, look at your map and negotiate a route with your passenger that will avoid getting you both stuck in traffic.

  1. thank you. it always seems like an impossible task this day. I wish i was riding. seems the only thing to do is hope there isn't a ride going crosstown. crosstown during the hours 6th avenue/chuch/trinity/greenwich are closed, can be done i think only through the fdr to 12th ave tunnel under battery park. and also you can cross central park at all the transverses. upper east and upper west sides will be spared if they stay local.
