I don’t think this is available online. There are some good tips to rides in all 5 boroughs with good stops for food. Lots of Maps too and suggested routes.

Big Ups to my pals at NYC Velo.

Time Out has been doing this series on famous bike people and their favorite routes in their “Own the City” section. That’s right, we bikers, own this city.
Online there are PDF’s to download with maps.

So far they have had:
