2016 Tour de Staten Island April 17th-

Spread the love

The Tour de Staten Island is a non-competitive ride through the neighborhoods of New York’s southernmost borough. The tour offers route lengths of 35 miles and 50 miles. Both routes are supported by rest stops stocked with KIND bars, fruit, Nuun sports drink, and good old H20. Pack a lunch or bring some cash to purchase additional snacks or a full meal along the way.

The tour is a ride-at-your-own-pace event on roads open to traffic. Unlike other T.A. borough tours, there will not be an NYPD escort or road closures. The route will be marked with painted arrows, riders will receive a cue sheet and will be free to begin the tour as soon as they have checked in and received their official rider bibs. Riders will be supported by volunteer ride marshals and limited sag-wagon services.
