Jersey City Ward Tour 6/7

wardtourjc

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 sixth annual JC Bikes Ward Tour. The festivities begin at 11am at Exchange Place on Sunday, June 7th. (Raindate is Saturday, June 14th.)

Enjoy a 16-mile ride on streets closed to traffic at an easy 10mph pace (with rest stops and a police escort). One finished at Exchange Place circa 1pm, celebrate with a street festival featuring live music, food, drinks, vendors and other entertaining attractions.

Registration is free, with a $5 suggested donation to fund BikeJC’s efforts to make cycling better, safer, more accessible and more fun in Jersey City.

Ward Tour sign-in begin at 9am at Exchange Place. It’s recommended to get there before 10am so you can situate yourself and hype up before the tour.

Be inspired. Helmets REQUIRED.
