NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – About 32,000 cyclists will take to the streets of New York City on Sunday for the TD Five Boro Bike Tour, causing dozens of closures along its 40-mile car-free route.

Rain, often heavy at times, is expected throughout the race. (Follow CBS2’s New York weather forecast for the latest conditions.)

Now in its 42nd year, the event starts in Manhattan and heads north into Harlem and the Bronx before moving into Queens. The route heads next into Brooklyn along the BQE before crossing the Verrazzano Bridge into Staten Island for the Finish Festival.
