The NYC Department of Transportation will be closing down multiple streets in Long Island City and Astoria Sunday.

The street closures will be for the TD Five Boro Bike Tour, the largest charitable bike ride in the country, which will be taking place May 1 from 7:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. Organizers estimate that 32,000 cyclists will participate, with thousands of spectators along the route.

The 40-mile tour spans the city’s five boroughs, starting in Lower Manhattan and traveling north into the Bronx, before heading over to Queens, Brooklyn and then Staten Island. The ride incorporates several major corridors in Long Island City and Astoria.

To accommodate the tour, the Department of Transportation has announced that the following streets in western Queens will be closed on Sunday between 7:30 a.m. and 2 p.m., at the discretion of the NYPD.

These streets will be closed between 7:30 a.m. and 2 p.m. on May 1. No parking is permitted on these streets between 11:59 p.m. April 30 and 2 p.m., May 1.

There will be no street parking permitted on these roadways between 11:59 p.m. April 30 and 2 p.m. May 1.

The day will be dedicated to bicyclists. The race website reads: “For one day, the roads are yours, the bridges are yours, the City is yours—there’s no better way to experience NYC.”
