Five Boro Bike Tour hits Brooklyn
Cyclists take to the BQE for borough-spanning ride
STRETCH LEGS-STRONG: Cyclists stop for a break during the Five Boro Bike Tour.
LAID BACK: A recumbent tandem bicycle was among the wild rides on display.
RIDE ON: A bike-rider takes to the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway with the help of TD Bank and the New York Police Department.
PEACE AND GLOVE: The 40-mile-bike loop created a different type of vibrations from the freeway’s usual.
RAMPING UP: The ride was a highway to heaven for area bike lovers.
They were without a car in the world.
Cyclists rode atop normally auto-only thoroughfares such the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway and the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge as part of the Five Boro Bike Tour on Sunday.
More than 30,000 bike-riders traversed all or part of the 40-mile loop, which began in Manhattan and, after excursions into the Bronx and Queens, traveled the length of Brooklyn, from the Pulaski Bridge in Greenpoint to the iconic span connecting Bay Ridge to Staten Island.
