What is the date for the 2024 TD Five Boro Bike Tour? When does registration open?

The 46th edition of the TD Five Boro Bike Tour will take place on Sunday, May 5, 2024. We’re finalizing details right now, and will make an announcement towards the end of this year with all you’ll need to know, so stay tuned! 

If you haven’t yet, please sign up for our monthly newsletter and mailing list (at the top right corner of our homepage) to get updates on all things Bike New York.

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.

If you need a donation receipt for your past entry, please reach out to us at info@bike.nyc.


What kind of bike is allowed on the Tour? Can I use my e-bike?

Any human-powered pedaled bike (recumbent, unicycle, tandem, tricycle, etc.) is permitted.

Class 1 pedal-assist e-bikes may be ridden in the Tour.

Please note:  Class 2 or throttle e-bikes are not permitted on any Bike New York events.

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.

And the best part? Proceeds from your rental help fund our free education, outreach, and advocacy programs!

Can international riders participate in the Tour?

Yes! Every year, we welcome cyclists from dozens of countries around the world. For the 2024 Tour, we will comply with all national and international travel guidelines in place up to and at the time of the Tour.

Are there age restrictions for the Tour?


Children under the age of 3 are not allowed on the Tour. 

All children ages 3 and older must be registered to participate in the Tour, and must adhere to the following guidelines:

  • Youths ages 3 to 9 must ride with an adult on a tandem bike, in a child’s seat, on a tag-along bike, or in a bike trailer.
  • Youths ages 10 to 17 may ride their own bikes, but must remain in close proximity to the adult with whom they were registered.

I plan on riding a tandem with my spouse/friend/child. Do we both need to register?

Yes. All participants must register in order to ride in the Tour. Youths must be registered by a parent or guardian, and must be on the same team as their registered parent or guardian. Children under the age of 3 are not allowed on the Tour (please see FAQ above).

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.

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

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 were unable to create or join a team with friends and family before the team formation deadline, you may start with them in the later of your group’s assigned waves.

Please noteVIPs and Bike New York Members do not need to 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.

How can I make sure I'm in the first wave for the Tour?

The only way to guarantee a start in Wave 1 of the Tour is to register as a VIP, a Bike New York Member, or a Charity rider. All other Standard riders will be placed in Waves 2 through 6, with consideration given to your start time preference.

Can I register someone else?

Yes, you may register other people for the Tour. 

Please note:  any person you register must sign the Tour waiver in order to complete their registration and have their rider kit mailed to them. Not to worry, though! We’ll email an unsigned waiver link to that person as soon as you sign them up.

Can you mail my rider identification kit to me? 

No, all rider kits will be distributed at our packet pickup event (details to come in early 2024).

Are there refunds on Tour registration purchases?

No. Tour registration fees are non-refundable and non-deferrable.

Where does the money from my Tour registration fee go?

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. 

How can I find my photos from the 2023 Tour?

Please visit MarathonFoto’s Tour page to find and purchase your 2023 Tour photos.

Note:  If you have a letter in front of your bib number, please don’t enter that letter, just the number.
