Our biggest ride ever!
About 3,500 cyclists from the five boroughs and beyond converged on New York City September 12th to experience the city from the best vantage point: two wheels. And with this year's special "short" 35-mile route, more families than ever were out enjoying the beautiful weather Mother Nature provided.
Special rest stops, like the Beluga Whales at the NYC aquarium and a free carousel ride at Prospect Park make the day even more unique...not to mention free massage by Fingerworks back at the Central Park finish.

Here they come to save the day…
Supermen of the Century
Thanks to everyone who helped before, during and after the NYC Century, including route markers (Clarence, John H., Ross, John W., Demetri, Joseph, James, Rich G. and the Bronx crew, and Amy) rest stop captains (Ken & Karen, Carter, Ken C., Matt, Jeff, and Steve) and volunteers, riding marshals (too many to name here - you know who you are!) - especially folks who directed cycle and car traffic, Ruth & Michael Rosenthal and the Central Parks volunteer team, all our medical, police, parks and DOT supporters, and last but not least, Wildlife Conservation Society folks Angie, Susann, Dominique, Tom, and Bob. Thanks all for making a difference and contributing to a great celebration of city cycling!
