Issue 20 | June 2022 |

The annual Light Up the Loop bike ride returns to the majestic Hudson River this Friday, June 24th, providing riders with a chance to explore Hudson County, NJ on two wheels. Decorate your bike (or helmet!) with lights, lanterns, or glow-in-the-dark decorations that will liven up during this vibrant evening ride. This relaxed-pace waterfront bike ride is designed for riders of all ages and passes through the scenic waterfront of Manhattan and New Jersey.

The ride is accessible via NY Waterway Ferry from both Manhattan and New Jersey and offers the best skyline view of the Big Apple that you’ll find anywhere along the river. Over 25 restaurants along the Hudson River and rooftop cocktail bars from Jersey City, Hoboken, to Weehawken are all just minutes away should you want to sit back and enjoy watching the light up ride. If you are a rider you could stop for a quick bite while taking in the breath-taking views and cool river breeze.
