The Tour de Staten Island presented by Lucarelli & Castaldi is a "ride at your own pace" event on roads open to traffic. Unlike the other T.A. borough tours, there will not be an NYPD escort or road closures. The route will marked with painted arrows, riders will receive a cue sheet and will be free to begin the tour as soon as they have checked in and received their official rider-bib.
The 22 mile tour will start and end at the Tompkinsville Square, less than 1/2 mile away from the Staten Island Ferry! The route will showcase Snug Harbor, before heading inland to the rest stop at Historic Richmondtown, followed by a challenging climb through the greenbelt, and a jaunt following the southern coast with dramatic views of New York Harbor.
T.A.'s Staten Island Volunteer Committee will be on hand to welcome you back at the finish. We hope you will stick around to learn more about what they're doing to make Staten Island a great place to ride a bike.
Staten Island Ferry: St. George Terminal
After exiting the ferry on the lower level, head directly up the street ramp (Ferry Terminal Viaduct) and turn left on Richmond Terrace. Richmond Terrace quickly turns into Bay Street. Follow Bay Street south until Victory Blvd. Volunteers will be stationed at the St. George ferry terminal from 8:30AM to 10:30AM, to help guide riders to the start. Ferries depart Manhattan's Whitehall Terminal every half-hour.
