Hmm. Nobody from the forum rode this year? I did notice a couple of things about it, like an altered route. It went up Central Park West instead of going through the park this year, which makes sense...

Looks like it was probably nice this year. They held this August tour – unique for this event – after being delayed another week because of Henri. Temperature looks pleasant at 75 or so, with lots of...

Bike New York has announced that the 5BBT won't be held in May 2021, either. There's an outside chance it will be run in the fall, but definitely not in the spring. I'm betting on 2022. Fall 2021...

Closing in on 100,000 cases in NYC alone, and Bike New York's response? We're still considering our options. Fools and idiots. Do they really think many people will want to show up in the autumn and...

Not gonna happen. Cuomo says to prepare for a 9-month outbreak. It will be next year at the earliest before the state allows such a large event to be held. Even if they could reschedule for October,...

If anybody has registered for this tour, just forget about it now. The state has prohibited gatherings of more than 50 people, never mind 32,000. Medical experts are projecting that the virus will...

This might be the end for this year's ride. The state has just banned gatherings larger than 500 people for at least the next month. If that restriction continues past that, it would certainly apply...

That's hasn't been true for the last few years. Used to be they would sell out in days. Now it takes months, and I'm not sure they actually do. If you go to their site today, two months after...

You still don't get it. The reason for not crashing the ride now or in the past should not be because there's better enforcement now. The reason should be because it's rude and inconsiderate to do so...
