New York “Everything Bagel” Route Details

New York “Everything Bagel” Route Details

New York’s “Everything Bagel” is the longest route on the NYC course, and the perfect route for a hard ~1-hour effort. It covers nearly every road section, many of them in both directions. Looking for a challenge? You’ll get several chances to test your legs against the leaderboard as you hit the KOM and sprint sections in both directions.

Be warmed up before you start a race here because the route takes you almost immediately onto the reverse KOM. Cool down as you cruise for a loop around Central Park at ground level which includes a sprint, then get ready to push again as you return to the glass roads for a go at the forward KOM before descending and hitting the sprint in the opposite direction. Hope you enjoy your bagel!

Distance: 34.2km (21.3 miles)
Elevation Gain: 525m (1722′)

What’s the lead in to this course, as I just cycled for two bloody hours and 48km and I still didn’t unlock it. And why was 1 15-30% quicker when my meet-up finished and I was riding solo? The 3 of us in the group were all doing the same w/kg.

The lead in is was way off on this route. Did almost 55km to get the badge.

I’ve just completed the route, and received the achievement badge, at 35km and 540m ascent, so hopefully there was a glitch that has been fixed. I was relieved when the achievement banner appeared once I crossed through the arch—I didn’t have time for 55km today!

Would you recommend a climbing bike for this course Eric?

Thanks Eric, I was planning on racing.
Is there a rule of thumb for distance of route vs distance climbed as to which type of bike is best?
I’ve read where you have said aero bikes best for large majority of courses apart from the alpe, Innsbruck and the Epic KOM.

Looks like some ‘glitch’ is still there… I just did this as a free ride, had selected the route, but it took me on a (clockwise) loop of the park at ground level first before sending me up the reverse KOM the second time around, and then the rest of the route as advertised. So effectively a 9km lead-in, for a total of 43km (thankfully I got the route badge!) Anybody else had this recently?
