Course

Gran Premio NYC will be held on the same course as the long standing mass participation race "GFNY World Championship NYC”, the world’s most international cycling race with rider from over 90 countries.
 
Race week activities are centered around the George Washington Bridge and Fort Lee, New Jersey. The GFNY Village location is easily accessible to both New York City and the beautiful Hudson Valley. Group Rides, the Welcome Zone, Registration and Packet Pickup, NYC Bike Expo and the Bike Zone are all located in the GFNY Village. With the pro race being added, look out for autograph sessions, Q&A’s as well as group rides led by the pros themselves.
 
On race day, both GP NYC and GFNY start on the iconic George Washington Bridge, the world’s busiest bridge, which gets closed to traffic to provide all racers a once-in-a-lifetime experience. At dawn, GFNY cyclists take their places in their start corrals. The sunrise reveals the skyline of New York City to the south, and the picturesque and historic Hudson Valley to the north. The pros will enter the bridge just before their start on 6.45am, a mere 15 minutes before the mass participation race.
 
The course takes racers through the historic Palisades and up Route 9W. After the initial 10 miles in northern New Jersey, the race continues in New York State along tree lined roads, rolling hills, and fast flats, at times so close to the banks of the historic Hudson river that you can reach out and touch it.
 
The climbing begins in earnest at Mott Farm Road and shows why the race is often called “World’s Most Western Northern Classic". Gate Hill and Cheesecote are the named ones but there are several others. Winding through picturesque Rockland County, the course will then get back to the Palisades. With two miles to go, the final climb to the finish line in Fort Lee begins.
 
The entire finish village is alive with music, photos, podium ceremonies and a well-earned post-race meal for all racers. The Drink Stand, Pasta Party, BBQ and Beer and Wine Garden are open to cyclists, families and spectators and have food and drinks available for purchase.
 
All this makes GP NYC and GFNY an extraordinary, unforgettable bike party and the Mecca of GFNY.
