Anyone doing RAGBRAI also doing the Five Boro Tour in NYC?

Just curious to see if anyone out there is also doing the Five Boro Tour in NYC this year? This will be my 3rd year for that ride and my first RAGBRAI. Thanks and looking forward to both for sure. Scott

I did the nyc ride in 2011- I never walked my bike so much- so much construction- i assume they have fixed it!!
NYC is fun

Yes I am doing both. Second 5 Borough and first RAGBRAI. Looking forward to both. Hope for a dry 5 boro this year!

I’m planning to do both rides again this year.

Hopefully, it will be warmer this year for the Five Boro Ride. Last year was pretty brutal.

The Five Boro ride is great, but nothing compares to RAGBRAI.

Where are you guys from? How long will you be in NYC? I’m from Cleveland area. I’m staying on the upper west side. Are you guys riding with a charter for RAGBRAI?

I’m glad I did the 5 boro once (they took an awesome picture of me in front of Radio City). Riding across the Verrazano Narrows Bridge was incredible. Riding wise it was a nightmare. 40k people zig zagging across 6 lanes. Then they had a wreck and shut down the route for over an hour. I also loved having to go there to pick up your packet the day before. Coming from Philly it hit my EZ pass 3 times in the two days. I’ll stick with Iowa.

I live near Harrisburg, Pa about 3 hours from NYC. Going to join some friend for the 5 Boro ride and staying in Staten Island. Have a great ride.
