World Bicycle Day - Hawthorne Register View Cart


Date: Sunday, June 9th, 10:00 AM
Location: Goffle Brook Park - Hawthorne, NJ

In 2018, the United Nations declared June 3rd as World Bicycle Day. Passaic County is partnering with EZ Ride to celebrate World Bicycle Day on Sunday, June 9th at Goffle Brook Park. 

World Bicycle Day is a chance for people around the globe to pay tribute to the bicycle and the many benefits it brings to society. Riding a bike can be a profession, a form of entertainment, a tool to freedom, an outlet of expression or quite simply the best way of getting from A to B.

Bikes are free to ride, brilliant for your physical and mental health, good for the environment and the economy, and are a stress-free way to get where you’re going.
Whether you’re a pro cyclist, a regular rider to work, school or the shops, or just enjoy a social pedal on the weekend, we can all agree that the bike should be celebrated!
