Bike JC Ward Tour kicked off at 11am

Hundreds of bicyclists decended upon Exchange Place in downtown JC this morning. They were there for the Bike JC Ward Tour, which kicked off at 11am. We saw off the hubby (#90 — woot!) and checked out the scene. It was great to see so many people on bikes. Exchange Place had booths set up including some JC favorites like Made With Love (who had some yummy looking donuts) and Pizza Vita Mobile Pizza Truck (breakfast pizza!). It kicked off at Exchange Place and began down Montgomery Street and over to Grand Street and on. The sixteen-mile tour will traverse all six wards of Jersey City. Click here for a map of the route. 

Following the bike tour, from 1pm – 5pm, hit Exchange Place for live music, good food and more! Not Yo Mama’s Craft Fair will be on-hand along with free massages from 1pm – 3pm by Harborside Sport & Spine and (best of all) a beer garden courtesy of White Star. Even if you didn’t bike, come on down and enjoy the festivities!

Bike JC is a group that’s goal is to make Jersey City’s streets safe for bicyclists. The organization helped to get JC its first bike lane in April of this year.
