Event description

Description

The Newark Bike Tour is scheduled for Sunday, October 8 and will take cyclists around Newark with a police escort, to show off the varied neighborhoods of our resurgent city, while promoting biking as a fun and healthy recreational activity. More broadly, the ride raises awareness of cycling in the streets of Newark as a safe, inexpensive, efficient, equitable, and environmentally friendly form of transportation, well suited for a dense and growing city.

To make sure the ride is accessible to all, we are making this a FREE event; however, if you are able to financially support us, we ask that you make a $5 donation on EventBrite or on our tax-deductible CrowdRise site (where minimum donation is $10). This will help us defray the costs of putting on the tour, as well as leave some funds left over for the rest of our annual operations. We estimate a minimum need of $3,500 for the tour, which cover insurance, the police escort and marketing.

Come have fun, and show the world that the Brick City is ready to be a great bike city!
