Biking on the Jersey Shore

McCleary Park Shark River

While the Jersey Shore is most known for its beaches and boardwalks, May is National Bike Month – the perfect time to talk about another great activity at the Jersey Shore: biking! It’s time to get some fresh air, exercise (it’s a natural mood booster!), and enjoy the scenery – whether it’s the ocean, the river, or the park.

The Jersey Shore is rife with paths that can take you from town to town. Some towns like Spring Lake and Sea Girt are designed in such a way that riding through the streets is easy. Other areas have paths to facilitate biking along the oceanfront from town to town. For instance, there are about 3 miles of wide path along Ocean Avenue in Sea Bright that take you right into Long Branch. Then, you can ride right along the promenade in Long Branch until you reach Pier Village.

There are also a number of planned bike paths on the Jersey Shore that take you from town to town through a scenic route, lush with greenery, without the risk or distraction of cars driving alongside you. One of these is the Edgar Felix Bike Path, which runs from Allaire State Park to Main Street in Manasquan. This bicycle path not only provides beautiful scenery, but leads to a multitude of destinations. So, take a trip to the beach, to an ice cream store, to antique shopping at the Allenwood General Store – why take a car when you can enjoy a glorious bike ride in the fresh air?

And if you want a park-like setting and a water view at the same time, ride your bike to McCleary Park in Belmar and take in the breathtaking sights of Shark River. You can find a list of some more bike trails with accompanying maps and photos on this website. There’s just no end to the beauty and peacefulness of biking on the Jersey Shore!
