Who we are

As one of the Hudson Valley’s most recognized waterfronts, residents of Weehawken enjoy riding the long stretches along, JFK Boulevard East, Port Imperial Boulevard, and River Road up through the expansive Palisades.  As population and traffic growth increases, risks to cyclists have increased.  We realize that a mission-driven community is necessary to enhance and protect cyclists so that we can all have a safer cycling experience as Weehawken’s population grows.

We recognize that supporting a shared vision of safer cycling takes advocacy, education and a strong community of like-minded individuals, businesses, groups and influencers to achieve our goal of implementing a “Complete Streets” program. Please join us on this mission to help transform Weehawken into a more livable community that enhances the quality of life for all.
