On Monday, October 21, 2019, Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz, Jr., will head to Joyce Kilmer Park to urge cyclists from all over the world to participate in the 25th annual Tour de Bronx.
Established in 1994, by the office of the Bronx Borough President and The Bronx Tourism Council, the Tour de Bronx not only showcases the burgeoning neighborhoods, scenic waterfronts and greenways that The Bronx has to offer, but also promotes a healthier lifestyle in the borough.
The tour will take place on Sunday, October 27, 2019 between the hours of 08:30 a.m. and 05:00 p.m. EDT at the intersection of Grand Concourse and 164th Street, Bronx, NY 10451.
Choose one of two rides. The 25-mile route takes riders through the south, east and mid portion of the borough including the Mott Haven district, Clason Point along the East River, and the largest park in New York City: Pelham Bay Park boasting nearly 3,000 acres of natural forest, OR The 40-mile route, which includes a visit to the historic Fort Schuyler on the Throggs Neck peninsula, the nautical community of City Island and the northern portions of the borough like Woodlawn and Riverdale.
Both rides conclude at the iconic New York Botanical Garden where riders receive a complimentary souvenir t-shirt (while supplies last) and enjoy a live musical performance as they relax from the day’s festivities.
