Explore and Experience New York City Like Never Before!

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 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.

Stop by the Metropolitan Waterfront Alliance table at the Central Park location
