The Ride

Join 6,000 cyclists and hit the road for the Tour de Bronx, the largest free cycling event in New York State.

Choose a 25 or 40 mile route through diverse and vibrant Bronx neighborhoods.

Presented by the Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz, Jr. and Transportation Alternatives and produced by the Bronx Tourism Council, the Tour de Bronx promotes bicycling and pedestrian environmentally-friendly methods of travel.

All Riders must check-in on the morning of the tour.

 

After the ride, join TransAlt's Bronx Activists for a Happy Hour at The Bronx Beer Hall. The bar is located in the borough's best kept secret, "The Real Little Italy", 1 mile away from the finish line at the New York Botanical Gardens.

Routes

The 40 mile


This fast-paced ride goes through Pelham Bay Park, City Island, and the grounds of SUNY Maritime College. See the Bronx as you've never seen it before! The 40-mile ride is recommended for experienced cyclists comfortable riding in traffic. Please note: There is no safety cell on the 40-mile ride. Kids under 16 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.

The 25 mile

A leisurely ride that's great for every age and skill level. Enjoy Bronx Greenway bike paths, parklands, shoreline and more. Riders will be accompanied by marshals and NYPD escorts. This family-friendly ride is a great way to see the Bronx from behind your handlebars.

Getting There

The 2015 tour starts at the Bronx County Building at Grand Concourse & 161st Street and ends with a music festival at the New York Botanical Garden

Riding marshals must be experienced cyclists able to fix a flat tire, and be committed to riding safely and with a positive, friendly attitude.

Please note: You must register before October 23rd to bike marshal at the Tour de Bronx. There is no sign-up for bike marshals on the day of the tour.
