Sunday AM TZB MS Bike Ride

Photo Credit: Journal NewsBikers and motorists will be doing their part for MS on Sunday 10/18 between 6a and 12n. Hundreds of cyclists will participate directly by riding in the Great TZ Bike Tour for MS which crosses the Tappan Zee and Bear Mountain Bridges. Drivers participation will be more indirect, slowing and showing patience during the Sunday morning cycling fundraiser for Multiple Sclerosis.

Two northbound and three southbound lanes on the TZB will be open with a reduced speed limit of 45 mph. Interchanges 10 (Nyack, South Nyack) and 11 (Nyack) northbound will be closed. Northbound traffic heading to the Nyack area will be rerouted through Interchange 12 (West Nyack).

Bikers will have a dedicated car-free lane to ride the three-mile tappan zee bridge as they participate in the event which kicks off at 7:30a at Kraft Foods in Tarrytown. Riders can choose the 60 mile loop including both bridges or a shorter 15 mile ride.

See the event live on Sunday morning — or check traffic on the TZB anytime — by visiting the NYS Thruway Authority’s live webcam page for the NYC region.
