Cycling in NYC

Every year, on the 1st Sunday in May, Bike New York helps to kick off the warm weather with its annual tour: 40 miles, through the 5 boroughs, on car-free roads. The tour also kicks off many resolutions to cycle more. Reduced parking and threats of fees to enter parts of Manhattan and frustration with the MTA, which runs the public transit system, has also inspired many more to ride regularly and daily. For leisure and recreation, check out our favorite places and route to ride in New York City.

1. Circle (some of) Manhattan: start on the East Side, from the 59th Street Bridge, ride on the streets on 1st Ave. Take a left at East 62nd Street, and continue to the East River. Go up the ramp and ride along the East River (some parts may be currently under construction and will guide you through any detours). Come off at East 120 Street and ride to 2nd Ave. Make a left and then a right on West 119. make a right onto St. Nicholas Ave
