NYC Century Bike Tour
Date: 09/08/2013
Location: New York, NY
Phone: 212-629-8080

The NYC Century Bike Tour is your ride — as challenging or relaxing as you choose, but always fun and rewarding. All routes have been carefully designed with your safety and enjoyment in mind. No matter which route you choose, you will be fully supported by experienced marshals and mechanics along the route with plentiful food available at scenic rest stops. Plus, all riders will receive a commemorative t-shirt and water bottle on ride day. Choose from 15, 35, 55, 75 and 100-mile rides.

The NYC Century Bike Tour is unlike any other bike tour you’ll find. That’s because the routes are designed to show riders the diversity of New York’s neighborhoods and how to navigate them safely. To illustrate bicyclists’ right to the streets, there are no street closings on the NYC Century — bicyclists ride with traffic and obey all traffic laws.

When T.A. inaugurated the NYC Century Bike Tour in 1990, New York City streets had few greenways and even fewer bike lanes. Over the course of the last twenty-three years, the city’s greenway system has expanded tenfold and, each year, the NYC Century showcases a growing bike lane network. The NYC Century Tour is an integral starting point for year-round bicycling.

The first NYC Century Bike Tour attracted about 200 dedicated New York City bicyclists, many of whom were daily bicycle commuters already fighting hard for better bicycling conditions in the city. Today, the ride draws over 6,000 people. Most riders are still New Yorkers, but many come from across the country and around the world. Many return year after year, because they know the NYC Century Bike Tour is the best way to experience the diversity and breadth of New York City.
