Held annually the first Sunday in May, the TD Five Boro Bike Tour is America’s largest cycling event. The Tour is co-produced by Bike New York and the New York City Department of Transportation. The event provides participants the unique and fun experience to bike through all five boroughs – a 40 mile, traffic-free ride for 32,000 cyclists.
The Boomer Esiason Foundation is proud to be among the official charity partners for the 2013 TD Five Boro Bike Tour to be held on Sunday May 5th in NYC. The Foundation will provide guaranteed entries for the Bike Tour to a number of bikers who pledge to raise funds for the Foundation. The bikers who participate on behalf of BEF will receive fundraising guidance as well as pre-race and race day support.
