Depending on the preferences of our riders each morning, this bike train has two route options:
Central Park option: South via Adam Clayton Powell Jr. Blvd and Central Park before connecting to the southbound Broadway protected bike lane, traveling west on 47th Street, and continuing south on the 9th Avenue protected bike lane to the Bleecker Street bike lane. (This route is direct, and partially separate from car traffic, with some hills in Central Park.)
Hudson River Greenway option: West on 127th Street to the southbound Hudson River Greenway, traveling to Canal Street. (This route can take a few minutes longer and is less direct for many Midtown destinations, but is mostly separate from car traffic and has flatter terrain.)
Exact destinations vary based on ridership: let your conductor know where you need to go.
Experienced urban commuters interested in leading (AKA, conducting) the bike train to the Financial District or Midtown East, please get in touch. We’d love your help.

– We ride safe and leave on time. Let your fellow commuters know asap if you can’t make it.
– An important goal of the biketrain to allow less experienced cyclists to gain experience and confidence — and provide safety in numbers. That means we often ride at a slower pace than experienced commuters are used to. If you usually speedy be prepared for a more leisurely pace.
– New York law requires your bike be equipped with a bike bell and reflectors at all times and front and rear lights at night. Helmets are strongly encouraged.
– You ride at your own risk (and you’ll need to sign this waiver to participate), but we’re a friendly, safe bunch, so plan on having a good time!
