Route Basics

Length: 9.8 km (6.1 miles)
Elevation:
126 m (413‘)
Lead-In: 0.2 km (0.1 miles)
Map: New York

Start & Finish

This course travels north from the start pens, which means you do not ride through the start/finish banner until the end of the first lap in an event. Therefore, we’ve created two Strava forward 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 and free rides.

The main start/finish banner is the finish line for this route.

Restriction: Event Only

Achievement Badge: 190 XP

Route Description

Every inch of this route is taken from real-world GPS data, so riders acquainted with Central Park will find these roads familiar. The course’s rolling profile is rarely flat or straight, and a few punchy pitches including Harlem Hill to the north mean you must stay vigilant when racing.

Along the way don’t miss the fall colors and many sights of Central Park: hot dog vendors, pedestrians, wildlife, water features, and of course the NYC skyline.

There doesn’t appear to be a Park Perimeter Badge any longer.

I’ve done this route 7 times, and at least 3x since they came up with Routes Badges. Never got mine, neither! Thought, I was doing something wrong (👉skipping lead-in, starting from wrong staging area, etc…), but seems to me I’m not only one…🤔
