5 BoroBikeNY

This part of what I call my cycling weekend. It starts with my clubs annual event called the Farmlands. It is held the 1st Saturday in May and hosts nearly 1000 cyclists. This year I road to the start at Brookdale college and finished with a whopping 76mi. The most I have done all yr. The next part of my cycling weekend is the 5 Boro Bike NY, held the 1st Suday in May. 30,000 cyclist ride through all 5 Boros of NYC. Traffic is closed to cars. It starts at Battery Park and ends at the foot of the Staten Island bridge, totalling 45 miles. This is just a fun ride that should be experienced at least once in your life.


The following are some raw footage of the 5 Boro. Unfortunately video quality is lost when down loading to Blog spot, but you will get the idea. Please, no jokes on my singing. I tend to get over exuberant on this event.


Enjoy and KEEP RIDING!!!

Marty,

Very good job. You certainly caught the essence of the ride. The weather didn't look very good, and the turn out seemed smaller than usual. However, your enthusiasm more than made up for it.
