-Fort Wadsworth, for all you war history buffs.
-Wolfe’s Pond Park, mountain bike trails.

The tour offers two route lengths of 25 miles and 40 miles, both with an additional five mile route option in still-closed-to-the-public Freshkills Park! Both routes are supported by rest stops stocked with KIND Bars, fruit, Osmo sport drink and good old H20 . The tour is a ride-at-your-own-pace event on roads open to traffic. Unlike other T.A. borough tours, there will not be an NYPD escort or road closures. The route will be marked with painted arrows, riders will receive a cue sheet and will be free to begin the tour as soon as they have checked in and received their official rider bibs. Riders will be supported by volunteer ride marshals and limited sag-wagon services.
