The Distinguished Brothers of Phi Sigma Chi Multicultural Fraternity accompanied by our Sister Sorority Delta Sigma Chi Sorority, recently volunteered their time and attended The TD Bank Five Borough Bike Tour this past week to help fund raise for many charities, which include, ASPCA, Voices of September 11th, Ronald McDonald House of New York, and many more. As a Multicultural Fraternity, we aim to instill a sense of selflessness and generosity in our members.
On May 1, more than 30,000 cyclists experienced New York City from a perspective unlike any other: pedaling down 42 miles of car-free streets through all five boroughs, taking in views of iconic landmarks like the Empire State building, Brooklyn Bridge, historic Harlem, and the Statue of Liberty.
The Bike Tour takes place on Sunday in May each year, the adventure begins in the Lower Manhattan area. Riders head north through the heart of Manhattan into Central Park and continues on to historic Harlem and then into the via the Madison Avenue Bridge into the Bronx. They then return back into Manhattan south on the Third Avenue Bridge along the East River on the FDR Drive. From there it crosses into Queens via the Queensboro Bridge and then on to the Pulaski Bridge into Brooklyn, where cyclists take over the highway before making the thrilling climb up?and down?the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge to Staten Island. The route is 42 miles, mostly flat except for the bridges. Click Here for an in-depth, printable map of the Bike Tour Route provided by Bike New York.
