It's back - save the date

We've brought back our highly successful and fun Ride for the Animals. Celebrate Halloween early! Come dressed as your favorite animal! Dogs, cats, cows, pigs… all animals welcome. Be creative… decorate your bike, decorate yourself, decorate your helmet. Prizes awarded for Cutest, Funniest, Most Creative, Scariest, and Most Eco-Friendly. All registered children get a FREE “treat” bag. This is a fun, safe ride that is perfect for the whole family!

Course Details

The bike path is the Edgar Felix Memorial Bikeway, also described here. It is 5½ miles each way, starting in Allaire State Park and ending in Manasquan with a 1½ mile extension to the Wall Sports Complex. You can bike the entire path which totals 14 miles or just do a few miles and turn around. You will go through beautiful wooded areas, past a golf course, a small pond and meadow, a farm, residential areas and quaint scenic towns. This is not a race so ride at your own pace. 

It's more than just a bike ride

Don’t have a bike? Don’t worry. You can do a 1 mile walk, even with your dog. This is a safe, family friendly event. Bring the kids. They can bike, you can walk. We will have staggered starts every minute between 9am – 9:30am. The path is paved the entire way.

Helmets must be worn by all riders. Restrooms are in the parking lot of Allaire State Park and in the Wall Sports Complex if you go to the extension route.
