Today’s news:


Bike New York announced that the Commerce Bank Five Boro Bike Tour will return to the city streets on Sunday, May 4. The tour, which is presented by Con Edison, travels 42 miles through New York City using car-free streets, highways, and bridges.

The tour starts in Battery Park in Lower Manhattan. Taking advantage of car-free roads, it travels north through the heart of Manhattan to Central Park and continues on to historic Harlem and the Bronx, returning south along the East River on the FDR Drive. From there it crosses into Queens and then Brooklyn, where cyclists take over the highway before making the thrilling climb up--and down--the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge. The Tour ends with a celebratory Festival on Staten Island. After enjoying the live entertainment, exhibits, and food concessions, riders take a free ride on the Staten Island Ferry back to Manhattan, completing the ultimate of New York experiences.

For more information and to register, call Bike New York at 212 932 BIKE (2453).
