2019 TD Five Boro Bike Tour

The National Blood Clot Alliance (NBCA) is excited to announce that once again, we’ve been selected to participate in the 2019 TD Five Boro Bike Tour Charity Program. We invite you to join us as Team Stop the Clot® cycles through the streets of New York City.

The Five Boro Bike Tour is the largest charitable bike ride in the United States. Join us on May 5, 2019 along with 32,000 cyclists of all skill levels as we bike 40 miles through each borough of New York City on streets totally free of cars. For one day, the roads are yours, the bridges are yours, and yes, the city is yours! There is no better way to experience the Big Apple and no better team to experience it with, than Team Stop the Clot®. Don’t have a bike? That’s okay! Check out Bike New York’s rental resources.

Interested in crossing the finish line with us on May 5 as a part of Team Stop the Clot’s® first official cycling team? Apply below!
