When is the 2024 TD Five Boro Bike Tour? When does registration close?

The 46th edition of the TD Five Boro Bike Tour will take place on Sunday, May 5, 2024.

When will I find out my wave assignment?

Wave assignments, including start time and directions on how to get to your start location, will be emailed out beginning the week of April 22.
If you’re registered as a VIP, Charity Rider, or Bike New York Member, you’ll be assigned to Wave 1.

What is a team? Do I have to be on a team?

A team is a collection of Standard riders who want to start in the same wave. You can join the team created by your friends and family or create a team when you register for your friends and family to join.

If you’re riding solo, you don’t have to be on a team.

Many team names are similar, so please make sure to choose the exact name (including spelling) of the team you want to join.

Note:  Bike New York Members do not join teams; you’ll automatically be grouped together in Wave 1. If you are a Charity rider, you’ll automatically be registered under the name of the charity for which you are fundraising.

The deadline to form or join a team is Friday, April 19, at 5:00PM.

What is a rider identification kit? Do I need it to ride in the Tour?

All participants must wear the full rider identification kit (RIK) to ride in the Tour. Here’s what’s in your RIK:

  • Your VIP or Charity credential so you can access breakfast at the Start, and your luncheon area at the Finish Festival

NOTE:  If you ordered shipping for your RIK, you’ll receive it in mid to late April. If you did not, you’ll pick up your RIK at our Packet Pickup event (please see the FAQ above).

YOUR SHIPPED KIT WILL NOT CONTAIN ANY APPAREL PURCHASED FROM PRIMAL WEAR. THOSE ITEMS WILL SHIP SEPARATELY FROM PRIMAL WEAR IN MID-APRIL.

When and where is Packet Pickup?

Can I pick up someone else's rider ID kit? Can someone else pick up for me?

Yes! We are offering Proxy Packet Pickup for the 2024 Tour, and you don’t need to fill out a Proxy form. See details below:

If you’re having someone pick up your rider ID kit (RIK), please email the following to your Proxy:

  • Your confirmation email (with the QR code at the bottom)
  • A copy of your government-issued photo ID

If you’re the Proxy, please bring the two items listed above plus your own government-issued photo ID to our Packet Pickup event (please see the FAQ above). You don’t have to print these items out – you can have them on your phone or other device.

If you’re picking up a RIK for your Youth rider (under age 18), you don’t need to have their photo ID, just their confirmation email.

Note: Proxies may pick up rider ID kits for up to ten riders at one time.

What if I don’t have a bike? Can I rent one?

Yes! Our official Tour rental partner Unlimited Biking provides a wide variety of bikes for the Tour.

With the convenience of bike pick-up in lower Manhattan on Tour morning, and drop-off at the Staten Island Ferry (St. George Ferry Terminal), you can ensure your Tour goes smoothly.

Children under the age of 3 are not allowed on the Tour (please see FAQ above).

How can I ensure that I am assigned to the same start time as my friends and family?

For Standard riders, you must be on a team together. If you are unable to create or join a team with friends and family before the team formation deadline (usually in late March or early April), you may start with them in the later of your group’s assigned waves.

Note:  VIPs and Bike New York Members do not form teams; you’ll automatically be grouped together. 

I'm a Bike New York Member; can my friends and family ride with me in the first wave?

If your friends and family are Bike New York Members, they will automatically be placed in Standard Wave 1 with you.

If you want to ride with friends or family who are not Bike New York Members, you may start with them in their assigned wave.

Proceeds from the Tour fund our free bicycle education programs as well as our advocacy work to create safer and more inclusive bike infrastructure in New York City. In 2022, we taught bike riding and bike safety skills in person and in our virtual classroom to more than 20,000 kids and adults. 

The early bird price for Standard registration is $134.00 (plus processing fees), $29.00 of which is a tax-deductible charitable donation. VIP registration is $400.00 (plus processing fees), $94 of which is a tax-deductible charitable donation.

All Tour registration fees are non-refundable and non-deferrable.

I deferred my past Tour entry but did not redeem it. What are my options now?

2023 was the final year for deferring riders to redeem their Tour entries. All unredeemed entries have been converted to charitable donations.
