The Wildwoods, NJ – Bike riding is a favorite pastime at the Jersey Shore, and no town seems to do biking better than the Wildwoods, NJ. The Wildwoods have coined the word ‘Bikeability’ to capture all of the amazing opportunities for biking.
Right now, there is no better way to recharge, get physical exercise and enjoy the beautiful spring air – all while keeping a safe distance from fellow visitors – than taking part in ‘Bikeability’. From lengthy and scenic bike paths, to bike lanes along popular roads, to biking along the recently reopened boardwalk, there are many ways to enjoy the Wildwoods on two wheels.
Until the bike and surrey rental shops are able to reopen, pack up your own bicycles and head to the Wildwoods to enjoy a FREE bike route that runs nearly the entire length of the five-mile island, starting at southern end of the island in Wildwood Crest. The bike paths stretch from the Wildwood Crest Dunes Bike Path, up onto the Wildwoods Boardwalk to North Wildwood’s Mulberry Bike Path, to the North Wildwood Sea Wall – a scenic, leisurely (or athletic) bike ride throughout the island.
A special ‘bikes only’ lane is dedicated to cyclists in North Wildwood along some of its major thoroughfares, from 1st to 26th avenues along Surf Avenue and on the North Wildwood Sea Wall. This lane allows cyclists to safely distance and share the road with traffic and pedestrians.
A bike ride along the 2.5-mile boardwalk is a must for many. The scenic stretch is now open to physical activities including biking – the perfect way to watch the waves and take in the fresh sea breeze.
Visitors to the boardwalk and bike paths, as well as beaches, parks or sport courts are encouraged to wear masks when feasible and must adhere to the social distancing guidelines set forth by New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy. All activities are subject to the orders of the Governor which state in part: “When in public, individuals must practice social distancing and stay six feet apart whenever practicable, excluding immediate family members, caretakers, household members or romantic partners.
