April 2018 Events

WE Bike 5BBT Training Ride – Roosevelt Island
Sunday, April 8
11:00am, wheels down 11:30, meet at Sutton Place Park South, at the park entrance on the corner of East 54th Street and Sutton Place South, Manhattan
RSVP

Whether you’re on our 5 Boro Bike Tour team and ready to train or you just want to have some fun on your bike, join us for a tour of Roosevelt Island and a bridge climbing challenge on Sunday, April 8th!

WE will bike over the Queensboro Bridge, head to the Roosevelt Island Bridge, and recover with a loop around Roosevelt Island before heading back into Manhattan the way we came. There will be a rest stop and bathroom break near the southern tip of the island close to the memorial. Our end spot is the same as our meeting spot. 

This 10-mile bike ride will include four bridge crossings, so you’ll need a bike with gears in good working order and some experience climbing hills…er, bridges. Leave the Citi Bikes docked for this one!

Bring snacks, water and, as always, your helmet!  WE’re looking forward to riding with you!

Rain date: Sunday, April 29

WE Bike to Watch the Red Hook Crit
Saturday, April 28

Join us on a short ride to watch one of the coolest races to take place right here in NYC!

WE’ll meet up at 7pm at Grand Army Plaza and ride together to the Brooklyn Cruise Terminal, where the race is taking place. Qualifying rounds take place all day, but WE’ll get there in plenty of time to scout good spots along the course to watch the women’s crit final at 8:30pm and the men’s crit final at 9:30pm.

Bring your helmet, plus cash in case you want to buy anything from any of the delicious food vendors, and a lock in case you want to go to an after-party!

Note: This is an all-gender ride! Everyone is welcome.
