Welcome Zone

GFNY week kicks off with a five-day GFNY Café experience at PIP Park in Fort Lee, NJ. Open from Wednesday to Sunday during race week, the GFNY Café offers you another way to enjoy your GFNY experience among other athletes, family and friends.

A Café with water, coffee, tea, bagels, muffins, bananas, beverages, music, bike racks, restrooms, a schedule of group rides departing from the GFNY Café, jumbo screen.

Unlimited Biking will preset at the GFNY Bike Zone Wednesday-Saturday to assist with any of your pre-race bike maintenance needs.

On Sunday, the jumbo screen will be screening a live feed of the GFNY race unfolding from our race cameras and commentated by our announcers. Spectators and fans are welcome to join us and follow the race live. Coffee, bagels, muffins, bananas, beverages will be available for purchase. The pasta party opens at 10am and has pasta dishes for sale.

If you plan to arrive to the GFNY Café by car, Kim & Bae law firm has generously offered their parking garage to GFNY riders. The parking garage is located a short .3-mile / 400m walk from the GFNY Café.

From Kim & Bae: We know how hard it is to find parking down by the park and along Hudson Terrace, especially on a weekend event as large as GFNY. Our building is a short walk to the festivities and we are located in the perfect spot along Hudson Terrace. We’d like to offer the parking because Kim & Bae supports GFNY and the participants. Thank you, Kim & Bae
