About this event
Annual spring bike ride in which over a thousand riders circle the city and then participate in a giant after-party.
FREE! This event is free and open to all, but we are also accepting donations to fund Bike JC’s year-round work for better biking in JC. $5 is the suggested donation, but $0 is totally fine!

Finish Line: Jersey City Jazz Festival
We’re excited to partner with the Jersey City Jazz Festival for this year’s “Finish Line Festival!”
At the end of the Ward Tour route (at 107 Morgan St.), riders will find a bike parking area and great food, drink, and entertainment options there!
Live music and festivities are scheduled there from 12-6pm on Sunday, so you can catch the last 3 or 4 hours of it. The Jazz Fest is also running the previous day, Saturday, June 4, from noon till 8 p.m.
ALL RIDERS, OF ALL AGES, and even people who AREN’T riding, are welcome to join us at the end of the Tour, for this “Finish Line Festival.”
NOTE: Bike parking outside Jazz Fest will be supervised, but is self-parking, not valet check-in/check-out, so YOU MUST BRING A LOCK if you want to park your bike there.
