Mayor’s bike ride re­turns April 30

Newark Post - - Local News -

The Mayor’s Fun Ride, which be­gan last year, re­turns April 30 with two cour­ses in­stead of one.

Par­tic­i­pants can choose the 2.5-mile fam­ily fun ride or a scenic 8.5-mile ride for ad­vanced cy­clists.

“This event helps show­case the amaz­ing trail sys­tem we have in Ne­wark while en­cour­ag­ing phys­i­cal ac­tiv­ity and proper bike safety,” said Mayor Polly Sierer said in a state­ment. “By adding a sec­ond, shorter route, we hope to en­cour­age more fam­i­lies with chil­dren to join us and prac­tice rid­ing safely, while en­joy­ing qual­ity time to­gether in their own com­mu­nity.”

Both rides be­gin at Ne­wark Shop­ping Cen­ter. Check-in for cy­clists be­gins at 10 a.m., and the 2.5-mile ride will leave the shop­ping cen­ter at 10:30 a.m. The 8.5mile ride will de­part at 11 a.m. In ad­di­tion to the two rides, the event will fea­ture ed­u­ca­tional and safety in­for­ma­tion, raf­fles, prizes and chil­dren’s ac­tiv­i­ties.

Reg­is­tra­tion is $5 for an adult and free for chil­dren 17 and un­der. To reg­is­ter, visit­
