Here’s a long and breezy, flat and easy ride to celebrate summer at the Jersey Shore. We begin at the train station in Long Branch, where we’ll ride three blocks to the beach. From there we’ll cruise north on Ocean Avenue, taking paved bike trails wherever possible through the towns of Monmouth Beach and Sea Bright.
We’ll enter Sandy Hook park at mile 7.5, but won’t reach the tip until mile 14. Along the way we’ll ride a combination of park roads and bike trails, taking in both ocean and bayside views. There will be plenty of opportunities to take pictures of wildlife and historic buildings within this former military base.
We’ll head back along the seaside route to Long Branch, where we’ll find a good spot for a lunch break. Those who are up for a swim will have the rest of the day to buy a day pass at Long Branch.
The entire 28-mile ride will never rise more than 33 feet above sea level.
Join us for a Sunday ride in the fresh salt air.
