Membership Program

There’s no New Yorker like a Bike New YoRKer.


Cyclists of all stripes are welcome in the Bike New York Membership Program; it doesn’t matter if you can’t tell a crankset from a derailleur or if spandex is your second skin. The thing is, if you are a New Yorker—even if it’s only in your heart or mind—and you ride bikes, you are a part of a community. Let’s make it official.


Are you a Bike New Yorker? If so, welcome to your new clubhouse.





Skip the digital line—get a special access code to register early, before registration officially opens. Please note: Early registration is only available to members who register in the calendar year before the Tour.  



Show off your membership with a T-shirt, lapel pin, and reflective sticker.

If I become a member today, can I register early for the 2018 TD Five Boro Bike Tour?

Early access registration for the 2018 Tour is closed, but members who join in 2018 will receive early registration access to the 2019 Tour the following year. Please e-mail with questions, or if you registered for membership prior to December 31, 2017 and have not yet received your registration link.

Can I purchase a membership for someone else?

You certainly can, and may we say what an excellent gift-giver you are? On the registration page, just click “I am registering for someone other than myself.”

Can international residents purchase memberships?

When will I receive my T-shirt and other swag?

You should receive everything six to eight weeks after you join—maybe even sooner!

Can I exchange my T-shirt for another size?
