Five Boro Bike Tour Closes 23 Streets in Brooklyn Tomorrow: Starting at 7 am

By Yehudit Garmaise

The Five Boro Bike Tour kicks off at 7:30 a.m. Sunday, when the city estimates 32,000 cyclists will take off from the Financial District in Manhattan, head to Central Park, and loop around a scenic route of the city, before taking the BQE and Gowanus to the Verrazzano Bridge, before racing to the finish line: near the St. George ferry terminal in Staten Island.

Although New York City builds more and more bike lanes every year, whole streets will be blocked off tomorrow, so that bicyclists of all skill levels can pedal through the city: free from danger of any car traffic.

NYC’s Department of Transportation (DOT) released a full list of the streets that non-cyclists will need to avoid.

In Brooklyn, drivers should take care to avoid the following streets: some of which will be closed until 7pm.
