Bringing people, places and events to life
It’s that time of year again, Jersey City—when we GET OUR BIKE ON and ride throughout the six wards of Jersey City in the Bike JC Ward Tour.
The race begins at 11am at Exchange Place on Sunday, June 4th. Enjoy a 15-mile ride on streets closed to traffic at an easy 10mph pace (with rest stops and a police escort). Upon finishing, celebrate with live music, food, drinks and other fun.
Registration is free, with a $5 suggested donation to fund BikeJC’s efforts to make cycling better, safer and more accessible in Jersey City.
Ward Tour check-in begins at 9am at Exchange Place. It’s recommended to get there before 10am because—of course—you want to situate yourself and hype up before the tour.
Be inspired. Helmets REQUIRED.
Growing in Jersey City is hosting its second Wellness event this weekend – GJC Pampering Day – on Sunday, May 21st at 1pm.
GJC Pampering Day takes place in a beautiful backyard in Jersey City Heights (229 Ogden Ave.) outfitted with local businesses offering pampering products and services that you can try before you buy.
Think hand massages, nutrition workshops, make-up consultations. The list goes on…check out the detailed invite.
Besides services, there will be $1400+ in raffles from local businesses. And to keep your energy up, light food and drink will be served.
A perfect excuse to get with friends or fam and spend QT together.
Buy tickets here.
Go get pampered,
Here we are again – that time of year when The Jersey City Challenge Race returns to Exchange Place.

Saturday, April 22 @9am. Full deets and sign-up here.
Go hard or go home,
Happy New Year Jersey City!!
Whatever your goals are, my advice is to pick one thing and achieve that. You cannot do 10 things really well at once. But YOU CAN do one thing really well if you focus on that for life-improvement. Once you’ve mastered the first goal, tackle something else. Keep it simple.
There is room for improvement throughout the year. Here are some Jersey City spots to find your “A-ha” inspiration during every quarter of 2017.
