Come join us on a slow community ride through the streets and bike paths of Newark. Be sure to have headlights and tail lights for your bike, and you may add spoke lights and head lamps to brighten the ride. Helmets are required by law for those under 16, but we highly recommend that everyone wear a bike helmet, regardless of your age or ability.
