To the races

Feb. 7  is the last day you can register for the TD Five Boro Bike Tour 2012, which takes place May 6. The 40-mile tour (it’s not a race, so there’s no pressure to speed through it) takes riders on a scenic trip throughout the city, where they’ll ride on closed streets amongst thousands of other bikers. Registration is done via lottery, so if you’re randomly selected you’ll hear by March 1, and then be given a week to complete your entry form. Visit to learn more.
