The 24th Escape New York was outstanding but it's nothing like what we have in store for the 25th edition with brand new design, brand new food options, updated routes and a lot more other things to come.
For 25 years Escape New York invites riders at all levels to leave Manhattan via the George Washington Bridge and to explore the beauty and history just across the Hudson River.
More group led rides at different levels and more food options will be available this year.
Escape New York is powered by the New York Cycle Club, 100% volunteer organization in the service of the New York Cycling community.
The ride offers five routes:
100 miles: Are you an experienced rider looking for a challenging ride? Climb nearly 6,000 feet while completing a full century through charming towns and beautiful countryside that takes you into and around New York’s beautiful Harriman State Park.
Dirt route: Are you more inclined to head off-road? For the gravel riders, the Dirty Spin is a 100-kilometer route that takes rolling back roads to get to Rockland County’s network of scenic unpaved multi-use trails. A gravel or cyclocross bike with at least 30mm-wide tires is strongly recommended for this ride. This is not a road bike route!
75 miles: Looking for a bit of a challenge? Gain over 4,000 feet of elevation as you wind your way uphill and down dale through 75 miles in scenic Rockland County.
50 miles: Do you prefer a “touring” approach to cycling? Enjoy the scenery on our half-century excursion to the historic village of Piermont on the Hudson.
25 miles: New to cycling? Is this your first time riding outside of the Hudson Greenway or Central Park? Expand your horizons as you amble through the leafy suburbs of Bergen County.
Perks: Breakfast, catered Post-Ride lunch festival, awesome rest stops and more!
Support: Hundreds of volunteers and marshals on the route, Well-stocked rest stops, limited SAG support.

Can I race in Escape New York?
