Route Description

This is figure 8 route which stays on the ground-level roads of the lower and middle Central Park loops. It avoids the upper loop (and thus Harlem Hill), giving this route a rolling profile with no substantial climbs.

The lower ground-level loop includes a sprint section, making this route ideal for events which include sprint efforts.

This route travels north from the start pens, which means you do not ride through the start/finish banner until the end of the first lap. Therefore, we’ve created two Strava reverse segments: one beginning just after you exit the pens to cover your first event lap, and the other beginning at the start/finish banner for additional laps.
