On May 7th, we finished the 5 Boro cycle road adventure across New York !

I was so happy we did it. My first long ride in the USA !


We went with the first wave at 7:50 and finished at 1:40 pm. The start is near Wall Street on the South side of Manhattan, we then went North on 6th Avenue till Central Park then through the park till Harlem, then a short turn in the Bronx.

We went to the bathrooms there, had a snack and a drink before returning to Manhattan on FDR East till the Queensborough bridge, a nice hill.Then North again to Astoria Park, where we stopped for bananas, water, pit stop. After a good break, we headed South along the East river to Pulaski bridge to enter Brooklyn. A course different from the marathon, staying along the Naval docks, then trough the renovated Dumbo, before taking the QB highway with elevated views on the borough.

The final hill was the Verrazano Bridge, that we ascended slowly in 10 minutes, absorbing the enormity of the trip, looking at tip of Manhattan far away to the North.

The race was extremely well organized. Many volunteers, lots of security, amazing.

40 miles from Wall Street to Staten Island Ferry terminal + 10 miles to and from home. A great day, a great adventure. A lot of fun.
