The start is right off the West Side Bike Path at 145th Street — just north of Harlem Piers. The closest subway stations are the 145th street stations on the 1, A, B, C, and D lines. All routes go up the West Side Bike Path and over the George Washington Bridge – a beautiful view first thing in the morning! The routes will be clearly marked according to distance. The festival at the finish line will be on the banks of the Hudson River, right off the bike path between 145th and 150th Streets.

Will There Be Food?

Of course! There will be rest stops every 10 — 20 miles to keep you fueled up, a full-out lunch for 65, 80 and 100 mile options at Rockland State Park, and a great, open buffet at the finish festival.

What If My Bike Breaks Down?

There will be bike maintenance at the rest stops, and a SAG vehicle to help you along the route. Emergency phone numbers will be provided on your cue sheet. No one gets left behind.

Any Safety Rules?

Yes. Bike Helmets must be worn while riding, no earbuds or headphones allowed, and all local traffic rules must be adhered to. Single file riding is not only the safest, it is also polite to your fellow cyclists! Be kind – ride behind.

Can I Ride On A Team?

Yes! You can create a new team or join an existing team when you Register for the NYC Pride Ride.

And Afterwards?

Festival and food! At the finish area, there will be a picnic buffet, entertainment, and complimentary massages thanks to our friends at MMX Body Works.

Where / When Can I Pick Up My Rider Number / Bib / Jersey?

Rider numbers, bibs and jerseys (if you purchased one) will be available for pick up at the NYC Pride Ride kick-off party, to be scheduled closer to ride day (usually held Thursday eve before the ride). If you can't make the party, you can pick them up at check-in on ride day.

What Will The Weather Be Like?

Hopefully as great as years past, but we do ride rain or shine. Since most of our costs are incurred before the ride, we can not offer refunds or rainchecks due to inclement weather or for any other reason.

Anything Else?

Cue sheets will available at the start. We also upload the routes to RideWithGPS and will send out links to all riders prior to ride day. All routes will be clearly marked. OutCycling reserves the right to limit same-day registrations based on early registrations.
