I did the 5 Boro last year and it was incredible! It was my first tour, and my first ride over 20 miles, and it was an amazing ride overall. Registration started last week, and they cap it at 30,000 riders, so you need to make a move because it usually sells out, or so to speak.
There are some challenging hills (entrance ramps to bridges, and going up the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway is interesting), but overall it's a hoot. There are so many people riding and so many interesting sights that your adrenaline really pulls you through.
I have a Trek 7100 hybrid (men's version) and it serves me quite well over the hills, dales and POTHOLES of NYC! :)
