Recently the Intense Intestines Foundation put together a group of riders to cycle in this years Five Boro Bike Tour through New York City. As you ride through the Bronx, Queens, Brooklyn, Staten Island and Manhattan, you cross over many bridges, cycle down major highways in the area including FDR Drive and go through most of Central Park.
The team of 4 cyclists and IIF Founder Brian Greenberg raised almost $1,000 to help those with Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis and ostomies this year. We are already looking forward to riding again in the Five Boro Bike Tour next year. It was an amazing day and you get to see areas of the city that you normally wouldn’t get to see, unless you were on the ride.
Getting to ride through all of New York City, without having to worry about cars, trucks and constant traffic is a great experience. As it gets closer to next year we’ll be putting together another team to cycle the 40 miles for IBD and ostomy awareness again.
