• ALL ABOARD! This year's Kids Bike Ride Scavenger Hunt is back to explore Jersey City's Historic Train Network! 

  • Kids will get to travel our protected bike lanes and learn local history, all while collecting clues to win special prizes! Each station visited will result in a stamp on the train ticket. Each stamp will earn one raffle ticket for prizes. Participants may visit as many stations as they would like.

  • Don't want to go alone? BIKE JC has organized a group Bike Train! The following 3 Bike Trains will be offered:

    1. Depart Berry Lane Park (Garfield Ave & Bramhall Ave) at 11:00am
    2. Depart Journal Square (Southwest corner of Bergen Ave & Sip Ave) at 11:00am
    3. Depart Gateway Park (along Merseles Street Grand Street) at 11:30am

  • No Bike? This year we're partnering with Citi Bike to Provide free Day Passes! Scooters are also accepted! (PLEASE NOTE: The number of requests has exceeded the number of available day passes and new registrants will be added to a wait list.)

  • No Helmet? We'll be giving them away for free! Helmets are required to participate. 

  • We'll also be providing snacks and water, so you can stay safe and hydrated!

  • The end of the ride festival will be located in Gateway Park from 1:00pm - 3:00pm and will feature music, face painting, popcorn, shaved ice, and raffle prizes.

  • This is a rain or shine event!
