In case you haven't noticed, today is the annual Five Boro Bike Tour to celebrate Bike Month NYC, which just got under way this week. If you plan on driving in the city today, be prepared for streets to be closed as 30,000 cyclists take over the town. The tour begins in Battery Park and makes its way throughout the various boroughs before entering into Staten Island via the Verrazano Bridge. 1010 WINS says that this is the third consecutive year that the tour was so popular they had to close off registration—this year setting a record by doing so seven weeks before the ride. The city's website has a full listing of the the schedule and exact route of today's festivities, as well as other upcoming events for the rest of the month. Earlier this week, we pedaled our way into Bike Month by talking to Jeff Underwood of Continuum Cycles.
