Join thousands of participants cycling through the burgeoning neighborhoods, scenic waterfronts and greenways of the borough in the largest free cycling event of New York State.

The event 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.
