five boro bike tour

The Bike New York, as an organizer and mastermind of this event, carries out the 5 Boro Bike Tour on the first Sunday of May every year to provide the vision of possible world of future, which is full of bright verdure and vivid bloomings, and healthy and strong people riding bikes everywhere. Being the greatest bike ride not only in the USA, but in the whole world, they are financing the free bike educational programs. In particular, during the last year more than 250,000 of citizens were taught within the frame of their programs.

This year approximately 32 thousands of bikers participated in riding through all five boroughs of the car-free city. For one day the city belongs to cyclists, and it is a great chance to discover and experience the roads, the bridges, and the city in general.

To be compared, only 50 school students and 200 members of bike clubs took a part in the first tour in 1977. It was a part of an educational program so they could practice what they have learnt. And back then, they had two police escort cars instead of blocking the traffic.

Since then, bikers from all over the globe are welcome to get together and join the New York’s experience and share the idea of environmentally friendly world.

2019 New and Future Cars: Genesis G70

Published

g 70 genesis

Genesis will attempt to snare its share of the compact luxury sport sedan pie with the launch of the 2019 G70, which is expected to start at around $33,000. The G70 shares much of its hardware with the Kia Stinger, including the engines—a 2.0-liter turbo-four good for 252 hp and 260 lb-ft of torque and a 3.3-liter twin-turbo V-6 that makes 365 hp and 376 lb-ft. Both engines will be available with all-wheel drive. An eight-speed automatic transmission is standard, but unlike the Stinger, the G70 will have a manual transmission as an option. Although the manual is limited to rear-drive, four-cylinder-powered variants, its availability is still a pleasant surprise.

“The 2019 Genesis G70 is the car we’ve been asking for,” wrote senior editor Aaron Gold after getting behind the wheel of a U.S.-spec G70 in Maine. “It’s luxurious, affordable, reasonably practical, great to drive, aggressively priced—and you can get it with a manual trans. Every time I review a car, I ask myself if I would spend my own money to buy one. In the case of the Genesis G70, the answer is an unqualified yes.”

Next up for Genesis is a production version of the GV80 concept, which made its debut at the 2017 New York auto show. It will give Genesis an all-important crossover that will serve as a showcase of the marque’s upscale direction and advanced powertrain capability. Expect it to arrive sometime in 2019 as a 2020 model.

On sale: August-September 2018
Base price: $35,000 (est)
