Join The Bike Hub in riding a half century ride from Jersey City, NJ to Sandy Hook, NJ. We will be meeting at The Bike Hub located at 191 Monticello Ave, Jersey City, NJ at 8 am. We will be leaving at 8:30 AM. We will ride down, hang out on the beach eat some good food and take the Seastreak Ferry back to Wall Street. From Wall street you can transfer to any Ferry back to Hoboken, Weehawken, or Jersey City.
You can ride single, double, or in groups, your choice, so ride at your own pace this is not a race. A good portion of the route will take you on the Henry Hudson Bike Trail which is both safe and smooth riding with beautiful scenery along the route, a portion of the route will take you along the oceanside.
A support van with snacks, water, and a mechanic with the tools necessary for most repairs will trail the ride. All riders will be provided with a direct cell phone number to the support van crew in the event of a breakdown. The support van will be in the vicinity and you will be located via GPS to get you back on the road as soon as possible.
Our meeting ground will be at “Parking lot i ” on the northern beach. The Pier accompanying that parking lot and beach will have “Ohana Isle” food truck/restaurant. An amazing Hawaiian fusion restaurant which serves up fish tacos and pineapple ice cream amongst other specialties.
At 2:45, will begin heading towards the Atlantic Highlands marina to catch the ferry to Wall St. We will be taking the 3:45 ferry back, but if you want to hang out, grab a drink, and a bite to eat there are a few restaurants around the “Seastreak Ferry terminal at Highlands” (326 Shore Drive Highlands, NJ).
From Wall St. you can transfer to the ferry of your choice back to Hoboken, Jersey City or Weehawken. Clear instructions and a map will be printed and handed out to riders the day of the ride. EVERY RIDER IS RESPONSIBLE FOR THEIR OWN SAFETY AND WELL BEING. This route is not blocked off and you will be riding in the street with cars a good portion of the way. There will be people at various speeds who will have smartphone holders and have their google maps on,, we will mark those people so you can spot them and ride with one of them as a pack,
but we suggest you have a smart phone holder of your own affixed to your handlebar or stem just incase you break away from your pack, you can easily find your route to meeting point.
It’s the last days of summer, so lets say goodbye with a bang! Between the bike, the beach, and the boat this should be a fun-filled adventurous ride!
