Thirty-two thousand cyclists made the city their own during the TD 5 Boro Bike Tour on Sunday.

Participants, ranging in age and from all around the globe, began the 40-mile, traffic-free tour at the southern tip of Manhattan and traveled north, through Central Park and into the Bronx.

Bikers then cruised back south to the Queensboro Bridge and crossed over into Long Island City.

They headed back north to Astoria Park to take a breather at one of the four rest areas along the route.

There were bananas, apples, granola bars and more waiting for riders before they took off again and continued south on the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway into Brooklyn and eventually crossed the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge into Staten Island.

Cyclists celebrated at the Finish Festival at Fort Wadsworth, Staten Island.
