From the Jersey Shore boardwalks to the mountain bike trails, there are plenty of places to go bike riding in New Jersey. Plan your trip with these ideas.
1. Sandy Hook Bike Path, Monmouth County
Pedal along the length of the Sandy Hook peninsula, and take in sea breezes and spectacular views of the ocean and maritime forests. This multi-use trail also will lead to historic sites such as the Sandy Hook Lighthouse and Fort Hancock.
2. Ocean City Boardwalk, Cape May County
Get moving, and bike along the expansive Ocean City boardwalk to get dramatic ocean views and to pass by all the shops and restaurants. Due to heavy pedestrian traffic during the summer, bike hours are often restricted to 5 am until Noon, but be sure to check the permitted bike hours first.
3. Edgar Felix Memorial Bikeway, Monmouth County
On this 5.2-mile trail, you’ll pass by everything from residential neighborhoods to deep forests, ending at Allaire State Park. Here, you can explore the additional hiking trails, stop by the Allaire Village – a 19th century living history museum – or even stay overnight at one of the campsites.
