Ayesha McGowan is a Cannondale ambassador chronicling her attempt to become the first female African-American professional road cyclist at aquickbrownfox.com. We asked her for some advice on how to get the most out of the Tour experience this year.
The key to success at the TD Five Boro Bike Tour? Simple. A tour-ready bicycle. A few easy checks will keep you rolling all the way from Manhattan to Staten Island without a hitch. Susan Lindell, the shop manager at Brooklyn’s Recycle-A-Bicycle (one of our bike shop partners at this year’s Tour) shares the essentials of getting your bike ready for a big ride.
Here it is! Route Map, Route Services, Start Schedule, Tips, FAQs, and much, much more. Everything riders need to know at this year's Tour. Want a hard copy? Don't worry, this'll also be included as part of the Tour program (included in the Rider Packet, which you'll get at Bike Expo New York.)
