Lodging

Discounted room rates are available for TD Five Boro Bike Tour participants. Room availability is limited, and reservations are on a first-come, first-served basis.

 

We’ll update this page after registration for the 2023 Tour opens.

Driving & Parking

We recommend that participants driving to the TD Five Boro Bike Tour carpool and park in Staten Island in the morning. Parking will be easier, and you’ll avoid waiting for the ferry at the end of the day. If you park on the street, please observe all posted parking restrictions. Cars parked along the Tour Route will be towed.

 

Stay tuned for more information on specific parking options as the Tour approaches.

Bike

We’re quite partial to this option. From anywhere in Manhattan or downtown Brooklyn, the best way to get to the Start Area is by bike. The Hudson River Greenway and Broadway both lead directly to Bowling Green. For detailed directions, use Google Maps to plan your route. Be sure to click the bicycle icon.

Subway

Note that some subway stations do not accommodate bikes. The MTA requests that participants do not bring bikes on the L/M/G trains. Visit www.mta.info for customized travel directions using TripPlanner, or call the MTA for more information by dialing 511. Check the schedule for changes as Tour day approaches.
