  • A scenic 14-mile bike ride that takes you through some of the best Hudson County has to offer
  • You can choose to begin the ride anywhere on the loop; however, most locals recommend starting at Liberty State Park for the best experience 
  • You can ride as a single or in a group 

 

Stunning views of Manhattan, vibrant neighborhoods, and eclectic restaurants. This 14-mile loop takes you through the historic and diverse neighborhoods, lively downtowns and spectacular waterfronts of Jersey City and Hoboken. The route is easy and flat and mostly utilizes on-street bike lanes and off-road paths.

Starting in the 1,212-acre Liberty State Park in Jersey City, the tour heads north along the scenic and family-friendly Hudson River Waterfront Walkway. Along the way you will pass the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island, marinas filled with yachts, two historic rail terminals, new skyscrapers, and some of the best urban parks in the country. 

The ride south through western Hoboken travels along Grand and Monroe Streets where new high- and low-rise condominiums mingle with 19th century row homes. The route then goes off-road again along a shared-use path parallel to the Hudson Bergen Light Rail tracks from 2nd Street Station to the border of Jersey City. 

After passing under the elevated Route 139 and NJ Turnpike Extension (I-78), the tour enters the historic Hamilton Park neighborhood with brownstones and a Victorian era park. Going further south into Jersey City, you will pass the Harsimus Stem Embankment, a massive, segmented stone structure that parallels Sixth Street for six blocks, and contains outstanding murals, eclectic restaurants and the beautiful Van Vorst Park. You will finish the ride by returning to Liberty State Park.
