Mayor Jimmy Davis and the Division of Recreation Bike Club have announced The 1st Annual “Go Pink” Bike Ride to support Breast Cancer Awareness.
The ride will take place on Sunday, Oct. 18 at 9 a.m. at Stephen Gregg Park.
The Division of Recreation will recognize all Breast Cancer Survivors and in memory of those lost to the disease.
Don’t be late. The ride will begin promptly at 9:15 a.m. and proceed along the bike path through the entire park.
The Bayonne Police Department will ride as escorts. Residents can register at the park.
There is no fee to participate. Donations will be accepted for the Community Cancer Support Group.
“Our main inspiration for the ride is to show our support for Breast Cancer Awareness,” said Pete Amadeo, Supervisor of Recreation. “We look forward to a great morning for an extraordinary cause.”
Weekly bike rides
The Bike Club meets the first and third Sundays of each month, at 9 a.m. at Stephen Gregg Park at 48th Street Lower Level. A different course will be determined each session.
There is no fee to participate. The BPD rides each week with the club.
Participants must wear helmets while riding. Beginners and experienced riders of all ages are welcome.
Social distancing will be encouraged at all times. Riders must wear cloth face coverings when social distancing of six feet between individuals or assigned groups cannot be maintained. This applies to all cyclists except where doing so would inhibit that individual’s health, per the New Jersey Department of Health, or when an individual is in extreme heat.
The Bike Club offers a free Youth Bike Safety Instruction class before each ride. Instruction will take place at 8:30 a.m. before the start of the Cycling Club by Boris Leonardini, a licensed League Cycling Instructor and Bicycle Mechanic.
