Come celebrate another year of biking, camaraderie, and survival with BIKE JC, on Tuesday evening, December 11.

Raise a glass, and in the process give a little to the restoration of Liberty State Park, which was hit hard by Sandy. A portion of proceeds go to Friends of Liberty State Park. We use the paths, let's help rebuild them--over beers.

BIKE JC officers will be there to answer questions, provide policy updates, and even--if stars, moon, and bike wheels align--buy a round.

This year we worked alongside the JCPD to pick streets that are wider, with less traffic lights/stop signs and will have traffic blocked off on all turns. We won't be stopping except for 4 pinch points to regroup (600 riders can stretch a long way!), to let any passing emergency vehicles and of course, if is deemed necessary by JCPD who will be escorting us through all 6 wards. See map below:

First stop would be Cultural Affairs department in City Hall (located in the basement) to pick up all the applications. You'll have to get it all signed off by multiple city departments including police, fire, health and engineering. If you require street closing, the engineering department might have to pass it to the City Council for a vote. If you plan on serving booze and/or food, the health department will have to get involved. If no street closure is required or no food, they'll just sign off on it on the spot. You'll definitely need to purchase insurance for this event which I can recommend. Health department is in JSQ, engineering on 440 and duncan ave, east district on 7th (between earie and manila) and fire on 8th & marin. Feel free to shoot me an email if you need additional guidance....damian@easyridersjc.com

Jersey City Independent: Park(ing) Day Events Scheduled for Jersey City and Hoboken Friday


Tomorrow is Park(ing) Day, that annual global event in which alternative-transportation advocates temporarily transform street parking spots into temporary public parks and other social spaces. The event, initially created by a San Francisco art and design collective in 2005, has grown tremendously over the past five years, with scores of temporary parks popping up in large cities all over the country.

Last year was the first time any Hudson County organization participated, with the county’s Division of Planning reclaiming a parking spot on Newark Avenue in front of the Brennan Court House. This year, there are two Park(ing) Day events in Hudson, one in Jersey City and one in Hoboken.

In Jersey City, the Hudson Transportation Management Association (TMA) will convert two parking spaces on Town Square Place (aka Pavonia Avenue) near the Newport PATH station into a park, with the help of the Actors Shakespeare Company of NJCU. The “Shakespeare in the Park” event, which runs from 10 am to 4 pm, will include actors in Elizabethan costumes performing scenes from a number of the bard’s plays.

“We hope that a little drama and a rapier fight will bring some attention and give people the opportunity to think about the amount of land currently used for parking that could be devoted to other purposes such as parks,” Hudson TMA director Jay DiDomenico says, adding that the event is a “perfect fit” with the TMA’s policy goals.

“Any effort to get people to consider using their cars less — reducing vehicle miles traveled — is within the scope of our work program,” he says. “It’s all about congestion, our environment and health. We also support more open space, which is a priority for Hudson County.”

However, DiDomenico says Park(ing) Day shouldn’t be seen as an outright indictment of curbside parking.

“That is not the case,” he says. “The Hudson TMA embraces this program because it is simply a fun way to get peoples’ attention to think about how they travel and that there can be better choices to make. Who knows, possibly fewer cars in use can translate to better land use in our beautiful county.”

Meanwhile up in the Mile Square City, Hoboken officials have teamed up with local transportation consulting firm RBA Group to set up two temporary parks between 9 am and 3 pm.

“Ped Paradise” will be located on Newark Street between Washington and Court Streets, and it will include seating, reading materials, board games, hula-hooping and jump-roping (JenniHoops will be providing custom hula hoops).

Meanwhile on River Street between Hudson Place and Newark Street, “Cycle Haven” will provide helmet fits and safety checks for cyclists of all ages and experience, in addition to a “bling” station for anyone interested in custom-decorating a bike. No bike? No problem, as Jersey City’s Easy Riders JC will be on hand to provide free bike rentals for the day.

Easy Riders co-founder Damian Wieczorek says once RBA Group approached him, it was a no-brainer to participate. He says he hopes events like this continue to highlight the need for bicycle, pedestrian and mass-transit infrastructure and improvement in the area.

“Hudson County is one of the most densely populated counties in the nation. For that reason alone, we need to offer an alternative to cars as public transport is limited,” he says. “The government is broke and should look into cheaper ways to provide an alternative to driving in an urban environment, while promoting more green space.”

In Jersey City, Wieczorek specifically points to the potential of the contested 6th Street Embankment as a spot for both bicycle lanes and open space, and potentially even a mass-transit extension.

While Hoboken’s official support of Park(ing) Day is just another reason that city is “on the right track to become the most bike-friendly city in New Jersey,” according to Wieczorek, he says Jersey City is also ripe for transportation transformation, though he admits it “has a lot of catching up to do.”

Still, pointing to the efforts of advocacy group Bike JC (of which he is a board member), and this year’s inaugural Ward Tour, which “about 10″ different city agencies and departments worked on with advocates, he says there is certainly hope for Jersey City. But like many others who work for change in the city, he says a “toxic environment” in City Hall continues to hold up reforms.

He pointed to a tale of two City Council meetings taking place last night as an example.

“Hoboken has an ordinance that is up for a vote that deals with the designation of bicycle lanes and with bicycle rules,” Wieczorek says. “Prior to [the] Jersey City council meeting, there was a rally being held to recall the current administration. At least the organizers requested the attendees to bring their bikes.”

Bicycle News & Updates in Jersey City
#14
Quite a regular
Quite a regular


Please post and use this thread for all cycling news and updates in Jersey City.

To start off, here is a short article about cycling groups in Jersey City from LivingStrong.com


Cycling Groups in Jersey City
Overview

Cycling advocates in Jersey City have an ambitious plan: to turn the town from an asphalt jungle to the most bike-friendly city in the state. Efforts put forth by Bike JC, a local cycling advocacy organization, are supported by cycling-friendly merchants, environmental organizations and progressive city and county planners. Jersey City residents can also access the vibrant cycling culture of nearby New York City.

History

Jersey City's first cycling organization, the Bicycle Advocates of Jersey City, was formed in 1999 by local residents interested in making the city more bike-friendly. The group held a bike rally in support of the city's cycling plan, but became dormant soon after the event. Five years later, the East Coast Greenway Alliance spurred interest in connecting Jersey City to the Greenway, an off-road path for cyclists and pedestrians that will eventually connect cities from Florida to Maine. In 2009, Bike JC was formed to improve cycling safety and increase bicycle use in Jersey City.


Bike JC, Jersey City's only local cycling-specific advocacy group, works to improve cycling infrastructure and safety. The group also plans events to increase the profile of cycling in the city. The New Jersey Bike and Walk Coalition is a non-profit advocacy organization with a mandate to raise the profile of cycling at the local and state levels. Membership is open to the general public. WalkBikeJersey, is a source for information and critical analysis regarding walking and cycling in New Jersey. Transportation Alternatives founded in 1973 and based in New York City, is a hub for cycling and pedestrian advocacy. Transportation Alternatives plans events, conducts research and pushes for policy changes that will improve cycling and other "green" transportation options. Membership is open to the public.

Government Agencies and Non-Profits

The Division of City Planning prepares transportation plans, including cycling plans, for Jersey City. As part of the planning process, city staff organize public consultations. The Hudson Transportation Management Association, founded in 1994, works primarily to improve commuting options for Hudson County residents, thereby reducing car travel. It offers Savvy Cyclist classes and an Adult Bike Safety program for commuters and community members.

Private Sector Partners

As of 2010, there are two bicycle shops in Jersey City that are committed to helping Jersey City attain the designation of "most bike-friendly city in the state." Both are considered partners of Bike JC. Easy Riders JC is a bike rental and touring company offering waterfront tours within town and to New York City. Grove Street Bicycles offers bike sales and service. Its mandate is to "inspire our community to recognize the health and environmental benefits of riding bicycles for work and play."
Recreational Groups

Just outside of town, the New York City Cycle Club's 2,000-plus members are committed to "having as much fun as possible on a bicycle." Weekly and weekend rides, events and training programs are designed to help cyclists explore the tri-state area safely and socially. The Five Borough Bicycle Club bills itself as "New York's friendliest bike club" and offers group rides and other perks to members. The Staten Island Bicycling Association is another recreational cycling group that emphasizes fun rides over racing. Membership in all groups is open to the public.

A small section of the park between CRRNJ, Elllis Island and the parking lot behind the terminal is closed off to the public and is for ticket holders, staff, supplies, etc...a fraction of the park.

None of the trees are tall enough to block the view so you can still get excellent views of the air show from the hill between Freedom Way and the boardwalk as it is elevated and easy to get to via a bicycle. If you don't have a ticket and want to see the show, take advantage of it. Another decent location is the hill where the new 9/11 memorial is suppose to go (north of the CRRNJ terminal). That's where a lot of the people coming out from ferries watched the test runs this week.

Enjoy!

By the way, the park will not be closed off, just the section mentioned above.

They've been doing test runs most of the week including today which I got to enjoy (we have a location right next to the CRRNJ Terminal). It's crazy seeing planes performing these manoeuvres and having NYC as the background makes it very memorable. According to the park people, they are expecting 40-50,000 spectators over the weekend. Strongly recommend checking the test runs in the mid-afternoon.

Don't have a ticket or don't want to deal with the traffic nightmare or public transport? Grab a bike from our Hamilton Park pick-up location and we'll show you where to get a great view for free. It's a short 10 minute ride to Liberty State Park.

Tour Fun Fact #23

In 1870, Thomas Edison perfected printing telegraphs at a laboratory near the Pennsylvania Railroad station (Exchange Place) in Jersey City. Living at the time in an Elizabeth boarding house, the innovator commuted each day on the 7:00am train to Jersey City where he worked until 1:00am.

Book a bike tour with Easy Riders JC and see what all the interest is about...

(Link to original review)

How to spend 8 hours between flights.......‎‎

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 By selena - Jun 9, 2010

......ask these lovely guys to pick you up from the airport [EWR], take you on a hugely fascinating bike tour along the Hudson, from where you truly get a perspective on Manhattan, a great shot of Lady Liberty, learn about Ellis Island, the railroads and the fabric of America and history and tales of big business, warring gangsters and skullduggery! Then they'll make sure you get a really great meal at one of several neighbourhood restaurants [we went to Madame Claudes...delicious], before they return you well exercised and well fed in good time for your flight. Awesome service from these guys. Whether you live in Manhattan and want to escape for the day, or want something original to do with your eight year old, I can't recommend these guys highly enough.‎

After six months of hard work, the Ward Tour was a total success. We originally were hoping for a 100-150 riders which ballooned into about 600 registered participants. Will have exact numbers later this week. Best part was the horde of bikers coming back via Montgomery Street (video coming soon) to Exchange Place. Look forward to actually riding the Tour next time as some of us had to stay behind for set up. Hope everyone had a blast!

If interested in participating in future events, join and follow us via Twitter, Facebook and Google Groups available via Bike JC.org

Again, thanks to the JCPD, Dancing Tony for scheduling One and Nines and the Subway Surfers, Grove Street Bicycles, all the participants, sponsors and of course, all the Bike JC volunteers!

Mayor Dawn Zimmer Announces Hoboken’s Participation In National Bike To Work Week - 5/17 to 5/23

To kick off National Bike to Work Week, Hoboken Mayor Dawn Zimmer will attend a press conference at the Hoboken Terminal on May 17 at 9 am which will feature the unveiling of a new bike rack provided by the Hudson Transportation Management Administration (TMA).

“Bicycles are not only recreational vehicles, but also an important mode of daily transportation,” said Mayor Zimmer, a long-time cycling advocate who often rides her bike to work. “I urge residents to use their bikes more often, including during their daily commutes. It’s a great way to improve health, save money, reduce our city’s carbon footprint, and make our streets safer for everyone by reducing congestion.”

The Zimmer Administration is implementing a comprehensive bike plan to enhance safety and encourage cycling.

“Over 15 percent of our streets are already designated with bike lanes,” said Transportation and Parking Director Ian Sacs. “And we are currently evaluating the best fit for bike lanes on many other streets.”

Some additional facts about bicycling in Hoboken:

* Speeding has been reduced by over 30 percent on streets designated with bike lanes.
* Over 600 bike parking spaces exist in Hoboken, and that number will increase this summer by 250.
* Thousands of Hoboken residents currently bicycle every day.
* An expanded set of bicycle safety laws are planned for release shortly.

Mayor Zimmer encourages all commuters to stop by the TMA table on Monday morning to learn more about sharing the road and bicyclists’ legal rights so everyone can travel safely, whether they walk, bike, or drive.

Bike to Work Day/Week began in Europe nearly 100 years ago and was introduced to the US by the League of American Bicyclists in 1956. Each year more cities join in the movement as the importance of physical fitness, sustainable transportation options, traffic, and pollution continues to grow.

The Hudson Transportation Management Association (TMA), a division of the Hudson County Improvement Authority, assists commuters and travelers to make better transit choices. The TMA will be at the Hoboken PATH on Monday, May 17 to support Bike to Work Week and provide cycling information and important safety tips. Hudson TMA works with employers in Hudson County to improve their employees’ commute. Studies have found that those who bicycle to work, are less stressed, more productive, have fewer absences, and lower health care costs.

Jersey City Bicycle Tour - May 23, 2010

BikeJC.org

Jersey City Ward Tour, May 23, 11 am, Exchange Place. Rain date June 6.

Bike JC announces its inaugural Jersey City Ward Tour, a ten-mile bike ride through five of the six wards of Jersey City, to be held May 23. The Tour starts and finishes at Exchange Place, leaving at 11 am sharp. The festival at Tour’s End features a bike rodeo hosted by the Jersey City Police Department; a BMX demonstration hosted by Grove Street Bicycles; food from Made with Love Café; music, and more. Registration is free online at www.bikejc.org

Bike JC is a citizen-based advocacy organization that aims to make Jersey City streets welcoming for bicyclists, by promoting bike-friendly policies, bicycle education, and traffic law enforcement. The Jersey City Ward Tour (JCWT), our first major initiative, brings together recreational, avid, and first-time urban cyclists on a festive group ride to cap off five days of Bike-to-Work Week events, sponsored by the City of Jersey City. The tour has multiple goals: to demonstrate to novice bicyclists and the general population that Jersey City streets can be bike-friendly; to provide camaraderie and community for long-time urban bicyclists; to demonstrate how cyclists, cars, and pedestrians can share the road; and to promote Bike JC and its goals.

The Tour starts downtown and winds up Grand Street to Ocean Ave in Greenville, where it hooks back through Lincoln Park and north along Kennedy Blvd to Summit and Palisade Avenues in the Heights, eventually coming down Newark Ave to end up back downtown at Exchange Place.

Composed entirely of cyclist-volunteers, Bike JC came together December 2009 and now counts more than fifty members. Since forming, we have launched our web site, participated in the St. Patrick’s Day Parade, promoted the existing bike routes established by the city of Jersey City via the web site and on postcards distributed through local businesses, worked with the city of Jersey City to plan Bike-to-Work Week (May 17-22), scheduled group rides, and organized the Jersey City Ward Tour.
