The Story

EVENT DATE: Sep 10, 2016

This year cycling enthusiasts and supporters are joining forces to change lives. Transportation Alternatives is encouraging Bike the Boros: NYC Century participants to ride for a cause, any cause (but we'll be really, really happy if you choose us).

 

When you ride for a charity, every pedal, every mile, and every moment of your ride is changing someone else’s life. Make all 100-miles count. Create a Crowdrise fundraising page through the NYC Century ride today.

 

The NYC Century is a true rite of passage for cyclists. Known as the nation’s only all-urban century, the scenic ride takes you around Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, and the Bronx. Celebrating it’s 27th year, the NYC Century will offer 3 different route options to participants; the classic, Imperial Century of 100-miles, the Metric Century (62-miles) and the Half-Metric Century (32-miles). Enjoy a good celebration? Be sure to attend the after party at Pier 97 with 10,000 new friends.

 

Starting a CrowdRise fundraiser does not register you for the 2016 NYC Century. To register for the ride, please visit this link.
