JCPD helped make Bike JC’s Ward Tour a big success

Dear Editor:
We at Bike JC would like to thank the Jersey City Police District Captains for the essential presence of the Jersey City police officers riding and driving along with nearly 800 bicyclists on Bike JC’s Third Annual Ward Tour this June.
This was our third time out with Jersey City’s finest and, as usual, the officers were professional, polite, and helpful beyond the call. Officers on bicycles and motorcycles stopped at intersections to protect riders, helped move along some of the more leisurely paced riders, and provided an essential interface between riders and drivers on the Sunday morning streets. The Tour came off beautifully, with everyone finishing safely and in good spirits, all thanks to the efforts of the Jersey City police.
We would like to acknowledge and commend the Police Department once again for supporting bicycling and safe streets in Jersey City and the annual Ward Tour.
Thanks again. Let’s make a date for this spring.

Christopher Englese
President Bike JC
