plenty have done it before you.
97% of the participants ride department store bikes that break down as soon as the ride gets started.
ask yourself if its worth the $$ - slow moving start, very crowded, wobbly riders, mostly on city streets except for the bqe and verrazano. plus the waiting for hours to catch a ferry back from staten island.
not trying to poo-poo on your fun time, but there are better group rides. I prefer the TA century or the Tour de Bronx in october. Then there are group rides with the NYCC, times-up or other organizations - no reason to not get out there on your own any day of the year.
