About this Event

The Forest Hill Community Association is hosting its first-ever Light Up the Night Bike Ride!

A Halloween-themed, evening bike ride in and around the Forest Hill area. This free activity will take place at dusk on Saturday, October 24, 2020 and will take a “slow roll” tour around the Forest Hill neighborhood and surrounding areas.

To light up the night, riders are encouraged to attach LED or string lights to their bikes, creating a beautiful parade of color for participants and onlookers to enjoy as we make our way through the North Ward. We will also have some fun glow-in-the-dark accessories on-hand to add to the fun.

The 5-mile ride will start and conclude at the corner of Heller Parkway and Lake Street, with easy access to street parking and the Newark LightRail Branch Brook Park station.

At the end of the ride, participants will be greeted by light refreshments and pre-packed trick-or-treat bags for the kids (or kids at heart).

Riders of all ages and experience levels are encouraged to participate.

Halloween costumes are encouraged (just make sure they are bike-friendly!) but not required.

If you're not a rider, be an onlooker! We invite you to station yourself anywhere along the posted route to watch as we go by.

Schedule of Events:

  • 5:00pm - registration check-in/arrivals
  • 5:30pm - opening remarks
  • 5:45pm - kick-stands up! ride begins!
  • 6:45pm - ride concludes; refreshment and Halloween treat bag giveaways

Special thanks to our sponsors, Saint Michael's Medical Center and Anibal Ramos Jr Civic Association.

Hope to see you there!
