Registration for this year's TD Five Boro Bike Tour
, the 40-mile loop through the city, will be done through a lottery system for the first time. Race organizers hope this will make the ability to participate more fair
for everyone who's interested.
However, if you don't want to leave it up to chance, you can register as a VIP for $300 (which gets you breakfast, lunch, a priority start time, and more), or sign up to ride for one of 40 charities (you have to raise at least $750).
You can enter the lottery
at any point starting tomorrow, January 17 at 10am through and February 7 at 5pm, and you'll have to pay a nonrefundable $6 lottery registration fee.
The 2012 tour will take place on Sunday, May 6.
