Held annually the first Sunday in May, the TD Five Boro Bike Tour is the world's biggest charity bike ride.

Produced by Bike New York, NYC's premier bicycling nonprofit, in association with the City of New York and the New York City Department of Transportation, this dynamic event draws 32,000 cyclists from around the world to pedal 40 miles through all five boroughs of New York City on totally traffic-free streets. It's the only time of the year when cyclists can experience the breath-taking thrill of riding over the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge into Staten Island.

Proceeds from the Tour fund Bike New York's free bicycle and safety education programs. In 2013, we taught over 14,000 New Yorkers how to ride and how to do so safely and confidently in the city.

Registration for the TD Five Boro Bike Tour is required to participate in the event, and is awarded on a first-come, first-served basis. Registration will open at 12 p.m. (noon) EST on January 14, 2014. Visit Bike New York's TD Five Boro Bike Tour page to register.

Come to Fort Tryon Park and try something new. Join us on Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday mornings for one hour of walking, stretching, and strengthening exercises.

All of our fitness programs are free, led by trained professionals, and suitable for all levels. Wear comfortable clothing and bring water. Please check back for rain and weather/air advisory cancels.

For a breath of fresh air, take your workouts outdoors. Parks are becoming a logical alternative environment for those who want to add variety to their work outs, or who just don't like the gym. And, it's an affordable way to increase physical activity opportunities, because there's nothing special to build.

Exercise with a view, in natural sunlight, with green scenery all around bestows health benefits that can’t be found indoors. Scientific studies have shown that the pleasure of being outdoors for example gives your brain, psyche, and immune system an extra boost.

Please note: Fitness programs are canceled if the weather is lower than 20 degrees and when there are icy conditions. Saturday morning walks begin at 8:30 a.m.
