All riders must wear an NYC Century Bike Tour rider bib and rider number to participate in the tour. Your NYC Century Bike Tour rider bib and bike plate will allow you, as a rider, to:
- Access rest stops
- Be identified by marshals and EMS as part of the tour
- Find professional photos of yourself taken during the ride
- Claim your t-shirt and water bottle at the finish line
Rider Bib and Bike Plate Pick-up
You can pick-up your rider bib and bike plate two different ways:
- Pick them up at check-in on the morning of the tour (at both Central Park and Prospect Park start locations). Please arrive 30 minutes prior to your route starting time.
- Pick them up from August 1st through September 6th at a Bicycle Habitat location. If you pick-up your bib ahead of the tour, you can skip check-in on the morning of the tour. Additionally, Bicycle Habitat is offering in-store discounts to NYC Century riders when they come to pick up their bibs and bike plates. For details on Bicycle Habitat locations, hours of operations and in-store discounts click here.
We regret that we are unable to mail rider bibs as in previous years. We apologize for the inconvenience and are pleased to report that we’ll direct funds previously used for mailing rider materials to support the advocacy work of Transportation Alternatives.
