The route for the New York City-to-Philadelphia Greenway Ride can be completed with a hybrid, gravel or road bike. We recommend a hybrid, gravel or other bike with thicker tires due to the mixed terrain of the ride route. If riding a road bike, we recommend a minimum tire width of 28mm. Route conditions will vary based on weather and can be a little slower going right after or during rain with muddy patches of trail. A bike inspection sheet will be included in the Pre-Ride Guide to make sure you are ready to roll.
Tandem bikes are permitted for the New York City-to-Philadelphia Greenway Ride. However, each rider must register as an individual at either the standard or premium rate.
Class 1 electric bikes are permitted with a recommended speed limit of 15 mph.
Recumbent bikes and tricycles will be permitted with two caveats:
Unlimited Biking will provide convenient bike rental services for the event beginning at $99. You may pick up your bike at the start and drop it off in Philadelphia at the conclusion of the ride with no need to transport your bike.
