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. The route travels through Manhattan, the Bronx, Queens, Brooklyn and Staten Island, encompassing the world's longest single-span suspension bridge, the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge. 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.
