Don't ride the TA Staten Island Bike Tour alone, come join us as the 5BBC rides the Tour De Staten Island! We will be riding the 30-35 mile route together as a group with a Point leading the ride and a Sweep bringing up the caboose. We will be meeting at the STATEN ISLAND FERRY AT 7:30 AM, for those coming from the other boros or anywhere else in New York. There will be a BROOKLYN meetup for all Brooklyn riders who want to ride their bicycle to the ferry. Once we arrive on STATEN ISLAND we will ride to where the tour begins and pick up our numbers, we will designate a spot where we will all meet back and off we go. Yes we will all suffer the HILLS together. THIS WILL BE A MODERATE / HAPPY FACE RIDE BUT PLEASE BE ABLE TO KEEP 10 MPH AT THE BACK OF THE RIDE.
If you are a FIRST TIME TOUR RIDER this is perfect for you and also all our NEW MEMBERS! After we suffer (Staten Islands Infamous Hills) we will reward ourselves with well deserved LUNCH at one of STATEN ISLAND's Restaurants along BAY STREET which is right by the ferry. Ride will end on the Manhattan side of the ferry, but those members who do not wish to have lunch can make their way back to the ferry on their own.
WEATHER - Since this is a 5BBC ride, any INCLEMENT WEATHER will cancel, CONSISTENT RAIN or EXTREMELY HIGH WINDS. PLEASE NOTE STATEN ISLAND TOUR GOES RAIN OR SHINE so if you want to still ride in TOUR you can ride on your own.
PLEASE BRING ALL THE USUAL BIKE STUFF: SPARE TUBE, LIGHTS, HYDRATION, AND OF COURSE YOUR HELMET.
SO IF YOU PLAN ON RIDING THE TOUR, RIDE WITH US, HAVE FUN, AND WE WILL ALL CURSE THE HILLS TOGETHER AS WE CLIMB OUR WAY THROUGH THE BEAUTIFUL BORO OF STATEN ISLAND.
