Welcome to Bike JC

Welcome to the official website of Bike JC, Jersey City’s
advocacy group for better, safer, and more accessible biking!

Congratulations to all of the 2017 Ward Tour riders!

The Ward Tour had over 2,000 participants, and the rain held off just long enough that we made it through the ride without getting soaked this year. That must mean that next year's ride will have only sunshine! Thank you to everyone who came out to ride and made this year's event so successful. We will post photos and links to event coverage as we get them, and we look forward to seeing you again next June for the 2018 ride!

Some initial photos from the ride are now up on the nj.com website

Here's a fun video of snapshots made by one of this year's participants!

 


Meanwhile ... We are moving forward on our most important current initiative -- pushing for the redesign of dangerous streets.
We presented our redesign plans for the Grand Street corridor (Grand Street Vision) at the the Jersey City Council meeting on December 14th, where there was a strong show of support from the Jersey City bicycling community.

The Council unanimously (9-0) adopted resolution 16.851, which requests the City of Jersey City Division of Engineering and Division of City Planning to study and prepare plans for a safety and accessibility redesign of Grand Street, to include advanced design techniques such as a "road diet", pedestrian safety features, and protected bike lanes, as appropriate.
