Biking through the Holland Tunnel!

Don’t try this: Pedaling through the Holland Tunnel to Hoboken

Here’s a fun video of a guy riding his bike from NYC to Hoboken through the Holland Tunnel!

Try that today, and you’ll be calling someone for large amounts of bail money!

Holland Tunnel 26 years ago:

Below is a 1985 photograph of the Boyle Plaza entrance to the Holland Tunnel in Jersey City. The toll was only $2 bucks, and Newport didn’t even exist yet!

Amazing how much has been built-up in a relatively short amount of time…

don’t try it! one time i was biking to hoboken from journal square and all of a sudden i must have taken the wrong road and ended up being caught in the middle of the highway that eventually becomes the holland tunnel, there were cars going so fast just inches away from me! i almost got a heart attack!

Recommend just doing the NYC MS Bike Tour where you can ride through the Lincoln without issue. The first 1/2 of the tunnel is down hill – you can easily pick of speeds in excess of 40 mph!
