Empire State Riders arrive in New York City on Saturday, July 28, 2018 for orientation and check in. The next morning, all our riders start the route together.
Participants ride distances of 60-90 miles per day, with challenging elevation gains. The greatest elevation gains occur in the first four days. Everyone rides at their own pace, and shuttles are available to assist cyclists who want to take a break from riding.
From the passing the Statue of Liberty, to riding along the Erie Canal, there is a lot to see along the route. To get a sense of the whole Empire State Ride Experience, scroll through our photos, check out the galleries or head to our Facebook and Instagram pages.
