Jersey City - Bayonne - Staten Island Skate
Sunday, August 24, 2008



The Skate: Bayonne Bridge Skate
The Date: August 24, 2008
The Time: 11:30AM Meet in Jersey City, Exchanbe Place PATH Train Station

The skate begins at the Exchange Place PATH stop in Jersey City, and we'll skate through Liberty State Park, over the Bayonne Bridge, and wind up on the Staten Island Ferry. At about the 3/4 mark, we'll stop in Staten Island for pizza at Denino's and/or Italian ices at Ralph's. We will make a couple of deli stops along the way for drinks and snacks.

We'll leave from Jersey City at 11:30. For those coming from NYC, we'll meet at 11:00 at the World Trade Center PATH entrance. The PATH entrance at Church and Fulton is temporally closed, you now enter at Vesey Street and West Broadway, one block west of Church Street.

The skate is about 22 miles, and we'll probably get to the ferry between 3 and 4.

Bring helmets, wrist guards, sunscreen, cash for refreshments and shoes for the PATH and ferry and Denino's. The PATH accepts cash ($1.75) and pay- per- ride Metro Cards but not unlimited ride Metro Cards. The Staten Island Ferry is FREE!

This is a great opportunity for a close up view of Ellis Island and the Statute of Liberty from "the Jersey side".

Call Pete if you need more info about the skate or are having trouble getting to Jersey.
