Drivers beware: The TD Five Boro Bike Tour is coming to town.

This Sunday, bikes will take over several streets in every borough of New York City, as 32,000 people compete in the annual bike race.

The TD Five Boro Bike Tour's 40-mile route, as the name suggests, carves a path through Manhattan, the Bronx, Queens and Brooklyn before crossing the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge to Staten Island.

And while those participating in the bike tour will be celebrating at the finish line, everyone else trying to get around the city might be shaking their fists in frustration. 

But there's hope. Scroll down for a list of street closures that will help you avoid the traffic nightmare.

The following streets will be closed from 7:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Sunday, per the city Department of Transportation.
