Five Boro Bike Tour Rolls Through NYC

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Tens of thousands of bicyclists were pedaling throughout New York City on Sunday in the 38th annual TD Five Boro Bike Tour.

As WCBS 880’s Monica Miller reported, Lindsey from Manhattan was wearing pink feathers in her bike helmet so her friends didn’t lose her among the 32,000 riders.

“I think one of the best parts is when you’re in Brooklyn, everyone’s sitting outside (on) their stoops cheering you on,” she said. “So you feel like you’re in a marathon.”

She also likes the end of the tour.

“Being on the Staten Island Ferry and having a beer and looking at the Manhattan skyline,” Lindsey said.

Jill was riding in the event for the first time.

“It’s really to prove to myself that I could do this and improve my fitness and just have a great time,” she said.

Added Ken Podziba, president and chief executive officer of Bike New York, the nonprofit group behind the Five Boro Bike Tour: “This is the most culturally diverse, most ethnically diverse city in the world, and it’s the best way of seeing the neighborhoods, the characters of New York City, on a bike with the energy of 32,000 other cyclists, and … New York is cheering them on,” Podziba added.

The event, however, is not popular with drivers who are limited by road closures.

“When they’re stuck in traffic, don’t be too angry at us,” Podziba said. “The money goes to a good cause.”

Money raised by the event goes to Bike New York education programs that help kids and adults.

Chelsea Transfer News: Jose Mourinho Confirms New Striker Hunt, Latest Rumours

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho is planning to sign a new striker in the summer, with Paris Saint-Germain’s Edinson Cavani the latest to be linked with a move to Stamford Bridge, per the Sunday Express.

Mourinho currently has three senior strikers in his squad, with Diego Costa the undisputed first choice and Loic Remy and Didier Drogba providing the back-up.

But Costa has been struggling with a hamstring injury recently, per Darren Lewis of the Daily Mirror, while Remy has also been sidelined. That has left Mourinho with just the 37-year-old Drogba, and he doesn’t want to be in that situation next season. Mourinho said, per Kevin Palmer of ESPN FC:

The group of strikers did very well for us, but I just imagine that it is something we can do in a different way. I just imagine this last period of the season only with one striker. Imagine in this moment if we have only had Didier to play Champions League, Premier League, Champions League, Premier League. It would be a difficult situation. We were unlucky to have two strikers injured at the same time. When you have three, one can be injured or suspended, but when you have two out it can be difficult.

Drogba’s future at the club is still uncertain, with the striker yet to be offered a new contract, per Matt Law of The Telegraph. If he does leave, then Mourinho will need a new signing, and Sky Sports pundit Jamie Carragher is of the view that Chelsea do require attacking reinforcements.

Carragher said, per Sky Sports, “Defensively they’re very strongand you’ve got Nemanja Matic in therebut with Didier Drogba getting older and Costa suffering with his hamstrings, I think they need another striker, too.”

The latest name reported to be on Mourinho’s wanted list is Cavani. Cavani scored the equaliser against Chelsea in the first leg of PSG’s last-16 Champions League tie in February.

But Cavani wouldn’t come cheap, and there is also likely to be rival Premier League interest in the Uruguayan. Arsenal, Liverpool and Manchester United are also keen on Cavani, per Anthony Chapman of the Daily Express, amid reports he has handed in a transfer request. Cavani‘s future at PSG could be dictated by Zlatan Ibrahimovic as the video below discusses:

Cavani is just one of several attackers to have been linked with Chelsea, though. Lyon striker Alexandre Lacazette is wanted by Chelsea, per The Sun (h/t Jack De Menezes of The Independent), and Remy could be offered as part of the exchange.

And there were also reports that Chelsea are considering meeting the £43 million release clause of Atletico Madrid forward Antoine Griezmann, per Pete Jenson of the MailOnline.

The calibre of striker Mourinho does sign will depend largely on how he sells the move to his preferred target. With Mourinho settled with his 4-3-3 formation, and Costa as its spearhead, a new striker is unlikely to go straight into the starting lineup.

Mourinho clearly needs quality back-up due to the fitness issues about Costa, but whether a player like Cavani would be prepared to primarily be second choice is another matter.
