5 boro bike tour May 2
Posted February 6th, 2010 - 4:04 pm by from Middletown, United States (Permalink)
I'm located in the NW suburbs of NYC(Orange County) and looking for anyone going on the bike tour that might be taking a van for bikes into and out of the city. Or even tag along with someone if they're going to take their bike on the train or other transport.

I've been waiting years to do this ride. I'd also like to hear from others who have done it.

I'm doing it this year for the first time as well. I can't offer you transportation, but I've heard from others that the ride is very laid back. With this many bikers, the pace is slow. There are many rest stops with snacks and water, and if you become truly exhausted, the subway is a possibility.

Anyone else doing it this year?

the 5 boro bike tour is a great way to see the city and SO much fun!

now and then it get crowded, maybe 4-5 points through the ride it will and bottleneck and you'll be walking your bike for 15 minutes with 1000 other bicyclists getting in line to a path that fits 2 astride so just be ready for that.
