Velocity offers riders one route with four distinct distances to choose from: 62.5, 45, 25, or 10 miles.
Our route begins 62.5 miles outside of New York City. As the route progresses, riders from each distance will merge into the route, gaining momentum to become one unstoppable force crossing the finish line together at Columbia and the end of cancer.
All routes are safe, well marked, and fully supported with SAG vehicles and rest areas complete with food, drink, bike tech, and medical services.
