It’s time for the 19th Annual Escape New York! Enjoy the support and hospitality of New York Cycle Club. This is the day our club goes all out to deliver a food-filled, fun-filled and fabulous day of riding to our friends in the cycling community.
Starting and ending in Manhattan, scenic routes of 25, 50, 65 or 100 miles take riders over the George Washington Bridge and onto the most scenic roads of the historic West Hudson Highlands of Bergen and Rockland Counties.
Our giveaway to the first 500 registrants: a commemorative, snazzy Escape New York musette bag.
New this year: all ENY registrants over the age of 18 who aren't already New York Cycle Club members will be given a free trial membership! From now through September 30, enjoy great club benefits including member-led rides in the tri-state area; access to an extensive ride library; monthly club meetings featuring exciting speakers; fun social events; discounts at local bike shops; and more.
And all registrants will be automatically entered into a raffle of exceptional prizes to be drawn at Sakura Park after the ride.
We will jumpstart your ride with coffee and scrumptious pastries from XCaffe. To keep you going: well-stocked refueling stops At the finish: delectable heros and a rollicking, post-ride festival!!
