Spring in the City: New York City Plus the 5BBT

Join us Wednesday, April 27th to Monday, May 2nd 2022 for a whirlwind 6-day/5-night cycling tour of New York City as ‘the City that Never Sleeps’ celebrates what we hope will be the first spring of the post COV19 era. Expectations are that Broadway shows will be fully reopened and that the World Champion New York Yankees will be playing at home in the Bronx and that the cherry blossoms will be in full color in the spectacular Brooklyn Botanical Gardens -- And the best part is that entire ‘Luxury City’ is accessible by New York City’s incredible 1,250 miles of bike paths!

Hit the ‘request to participate’ button and reach out to the Tour Leader, Tom Ryan at and get one of the coveted spaces on the tour as quickly as possible. Then pay the People Cycling registration fee of $100.00 on-line and follow the payment process detailed below to pay the tour fee of $1,350.00. Immediately thereafter, go to the Bike New York website and sign up for the Five Boro Bike Tour (5BBT) information updates which will alert riders when the registration period begins.

People Cycling's Ride Rating

People Cycling has four categories for our rides – Easy, Moderate, Difficult, and Challenging. It should be somewhat obvious what these categories mean, but please become familiar with the elevations and distances that define them:

Easy rides are under 30mi/48km in average distance and 1600ft/500m in average elevation
Moderate rides are over the Easy rating but under 50mi/80km and 2460ft/750m
Difficult rides are as over the Moderate rating but under 75mi/120km and 3280/1000m
Anything over the Difficult rating

NOTE: This is not a strict guideline. There could be rides that have a day or two where the average elevation or distance exceeds the values given above. These anomalies should be outlined in the ride description. It is recommended that you read it carefully.

About People Cycling

People Cycling is a recently launched cycling club, which you can join for free, and is led by volunteer ride leaders. We will be offering tours in the United States and overseas. Our tours are made up of a small group of participants (typically 20-30 or so) who want to ride 30 to 55 miles a day over a one or two week period in interesting regions of the world.

Our ride leaders are volunteers and do not financially profit on tours they lead. They are also given broad discretion on how to lead their tours, and we consider them our greatest asset.

People Cycling tours are operated at cost or at lower cost (as negotiated by our ride leaders) than individuals can obtain on commercial tours. Within the cost of a tour, there is a nominal fee to support club operations and provide tools to ride leaders to manage their rides.

A lifetime membership in People Cycling is absolutely FREE, so please join us and become one of us – we the people, cycling together.
