Gear Up for Fun - The Bergen Bike Tour

Looking for a fun family outing this fall? The 14th Annual Bergen Bike Tour is a great way for families and friends to get some exercise, enjoy the outdoors and do good in the community all at the same time. The Bergen Bike Tour will be held on Sunday, September 27, at Darlington County Park, in Mahwah. All proceeds benefit Tomorrows Children’s Fund and the Volunteer Center of Bergen County.

A special “Kids’ Ride" sponsored by Ford Motor Company will be held for little ones on big wheels and tricycles as well as those not yet ready for the 10-mile route. Kids can tour an antique fire truck on-site, and “Sly the Fox”, the NJ Nets mascot, will be stopping by to say hello and cheer on the riders. A post-ride picnic will include home-cooked bbq fare, a DJ, clowns, games and prizes. Two Jamis bicycles – a 2009 Allegro valued at $635 and a 2008 Commuter valued at $425 – will be raffled at $5 per ticket. Register online at or call 1-877-BER-BIKE (237-2453) or email
