The Commerce Bank Five Boro Bike Tour is the biggest cycling event in the USA, seeing 30,000 cyclists pedalling through the five boroughs of New York City on 42 miles (68km) of traffic-free avenues, highways, and bridges. This includes the world's longest single-span suspension bridge, the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge.

The route travels through Manhattan, the Bronx, Queens, Brooklyn, and Staten Island. The day ends with a festival at Fort Wadsworth, featuring live music, food, and exhibitions. Spectators make a festival out of the event and line the route to cheer the cyclists on. For more details, and information on how to enter, check out the official website.
