26th Annual NYC Century Bike Tour
Explore and Experience New York City Like Never Before!

The nation’s only all-urban 100-mile bike tour is as challenging or relaxing as you choose, but always fun and rewarding. Choose between two starting points (Prospect Park and Central Park) and 35, 55, 75 and 100-mile rides. No matter which route you choose, you will be fully supported by experienced marshals and mechanics along the route with plentiful food available at scenic rest stops. Plus, all riders will receive a commemorative t-shirt and water bottle on ride day.

The NYC Century is a program of Transportation Alternatives, New York’s leading advocate for bike and pedestrian safety. When T.A. inaugurated the NYC Century Bike Tour in 1990, New York City streets had few greenways and even fewer bike lanes. The Century attracted about 200 dedicated New York City bicyclists, many of whom were daily bicycle commuters already fighting hard for better bicycling conditions in the city

Now, the NYC Century draws approximately 7,000 people and showcases a growing bike lane network. It is the best way for New Yorkers and visitors alike to experience the diversity and breadth of New York City. All the routes are designed to show riders the diversity of New York’s neighborhoods and how to navigate them safely. To illustrate bicyclists' right to the streets, there are no street closings on the NYC Century -- bicyclists ride with traffic and obey all traffic laws.
