Here's one of my favorite stretches of the Five Boro Bike Tour, the leg that runs through Central Park.
Getting to this point involves a somewhat frustrating crawl up fifth Avenue, with lots of starts and stops along the way. Everyone is anxious to get on the tour, knowing that they've got 40 more miles ahead of them. So when we finally enter the park, and start coasting through the "lungs of the city," its the first truly exhilerating part of the tour for me.
Among the highlights in this video to watch out for:
- The tandem recumbent bike
- The lady with her dog in a cage in the back of her bike
- The couple on another tandem bike with a bubble blower!
A fine start to an outstanding day.
