Bike Weehawken Community Ride Series

We’re excited to announce our community bicycle ride series where you can enjoy two planned routes, offering you a unique perspective of Weehawken in a timeframe of just ~30 minutes from either a skyline view on the cliff or a ride along the waterfront. The routes will include stops at locally owned cafes for you to grab a bite to eat, refreshments, and a chance to have conversations with your fellow community members.

Please take a look at our dates, locations, and details below, and please don’t hesitate to reach out if you have any questions or want to get involved.

We’re excited for a fun season of riding in Weehawken together. #WeeRide
