If you choose not to pre-register (online or via mail) or miss the deadline, you should check BikeReg.com to see if your field is full.  If it has reached its field limit

So, pre-register to guarantee your spot.

Minors must have their entry form signed by a parent.
Entry fee for Juniors is only $5.
Juniors should register with their category (no separate Junior event).  If a Junior registers online, they should request a refund, at the event, of any entry fee amount they paid over $5.


Since the field is strictly limited to 50 riders, it is STRONGLY recommended that all riders doing the Category 5 event register online or by mail.  If you intend on registering on the day of the event, first check BikeReg.com to see if there are any spots left.  If less than 50 have registered via BikeReg, you should arrive very early as this field almost always fills up.

No category 5's are permitted in the Masters 35+ event. 
Riders with "elite" UCI licenses, may not ride in the Masters event.

Category 1-3 Women ride in a combined field with the Masters 35+, but ride one more lap than the Masters 35+, so that they have separate finishes.  Category 4 Women are permitted to enter the Category 5 or Category 4 Men's event. Entry fee for Category 4 Women is only $15 pre-entry and $20 on race day (please email promoter for discount amount on pre-entries or see promoter at the conclusion of racing on the day of the event).
Women Note: minimum field size is 10 women in order to pay full prize list. 
 If less than 10 women enter, then places & NY City Championship points for the first five women will be awarded, but prize list will be reduced.  See Prize List for details.
We strongly support women's racing, so you should support these races.

All International Licenses (UCI - non-USA Cycling) that do not have a category on them, must ride in the Pro-1-2-3 event.  Riders with "Elite" UCI Licenses may not ride in the Masters event.

 pay an additional $5 (does not apply to Category 5 Men or Category 4 Women).

Parking can be found on surrounding streets (such as Parkside Ave.).  DO NOT drive cars into the park.


A 3.4 mile loop along the park roadway in Prospect Park.  The course features one moderate (big ring) hill and sweeping turns. Although the course is closed to traffic, you will frequently encounter other park users (pedestrians, cyclists, etc), on the park roadway. For this reason, all competitors are advised to stay alert and be polite to other park users.

Riders must not enter the "recreation" lane on the left side of the roadway, for any reason.  Any rider entering this lane, even momentarily, will be disqualified and suspended by USA Cycling and will not be permitted to race in NY Parks for three months and will not be permitted to race in the NY Cycling Series races for one year.  We reserve the right to disqualify your entire team, if any of your riders enters the recreation lane.

If your field is being overtaken by another field, you must slow down and pull to the right immediately.  Failure to do so will result in disqualification of specific riders or an entire field (we have done this).  Do not mix in with a passing field.  You MUST stay behind your pace vehicle, unless given specific instructions to the contrary.

Additional Registration Information:

ONE-DAY LICENSES are available on the day of the event at a cost of $10 for those without a USA Cycling Racing license.  Please note that one-day licenses can be purchased only by unlicensed or Category 5 Men or unlicensed or Category 4 women.
