The Five Boros will celebrate its 30th anniversary on May 6 as it winds its way through the five boroughs of New York City along 42 traffic-free miles. More than 30,000 people are expected to participate.

The Tour will start in Lower Manhattan, go north through Central Park and then continue on to historic Harlem and the Bronx before returning south along the East River on the FDR Drive. From there, riders will visit Queens and Brooklyn, and cross the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge to finish at Staten Island.

The non-profit Bike New York runs the event for the benefit of Bicycle Education Program which offers free classes and workshops for adults, children, and families, and custom programs for groups. The organization has partnered with new title sponsor Commerce Bank for this year's edition of the tour.

"This top-level sponsor commitment ensures that the experience of cycling traffic-free through New York City will be available to new generations of riders," said Bike New York's Executive Director Pam Tice. Visit www.BikeNewYork.org for more information.
