While we still have a couple of weeks before the 2016 cycling season gets underway, there are some very special events lined up for us this spring and summer, and if you fancy taking part in one of the world’s largest cycling events, there are 2 very important dates for your diary, with the Cape Town Cycle Tour in South Africa on 6th March, and the 5 Boro Bike Tour in New York on 1st May.
Both of these international cycling events are part of the newly formed World Association of Cycling Events (WACE), and they both attract over 30,000 cyclists from across the world who love nothing more than combining their annual holiday with a unique cycling event.
International Entries are still available for the Cape Town Cycle Tour, and entries for the Five Boro Bike Tour open tomorrow, Tuesday 12th January, so if you want to secure your place on either (or both) of these iconic cycle tours, you should act now.

The TD Five Boro Bike Tour takes place on the first Sunday in May each year, and attracts some 32,000 cyclists from around the world, of all ages and all abilities. A one day, 40 mile ride across the 5 boroughs of New York, namely Manhattan, the Bronx, Brooklyn, Queens, and Staten Island, this fantastic event is ideal for those who want to uncover the highlights of the Big Apple on traffic free roads.
Organised in conjunction with the City of New York, the TD Five Boro Bike Tour is the largest charitable bike tour in the United States, which raises funds for the Bike New York Free Bike Education Programs, along with a variety of other charities such as the Cancer Research Institute, Team ASPCA, and Worldwide Orphans.
Designed to inspire all of us to “grab life by the handlebars”, the Bike New York 5 Boro Bike Tour is a fantastic event for cyclists of every age, so why not book your spot tomorrow, and cycle the Big Apple this spring!
