Presented by Mayor John E. McCormac & The Mayor’s Wellness Campaign, Woodbridge is proud to host it’s 12th Annual Tour de’ Woodbridge bike ride and Bicycling Safety Day event on Sunday September 29th.

While same-day registration takes place at 7am, the recreational race event begins at 8am at the Woodbridge Community Center at 600 Main Street Woodbridge NJ 07095. Breakfast – sponsored by Wegmans – will be served to participants after the race.

“We want to get people from Woodbridge and the surrounding communities to get out and be active,” said Jeff Marmelstein, director of the Tour de’ Woodbridge. “We’re letting people see that you can bike around Woodbridge.” Marmelstein, an avid cyclist himself, organized and participates in the 30 mile ride that passes through Woodbridge proper, Avenel, Colonia, Fords, and the Sewaren sections of Woodbridge Township. In addition to the 30 mile trek, the Tour de Woodbridge will have a shorter course, which will be approximately 16 miles. “We just want to get people moving, that’s how you get that healthy lifestyle,” noted Marmelstein.

The event will take place rain or shine and T-shirts are guaranteed to all pre-registered cyclists ($25 or $30 day of race) prior to September 23rd while supplies last. Bike repair assistance is available at the start and entry is open for ages 12 and over and please remember — HELMETS ARE MANDATORY and the safe way to always get about on 2 wheels!
