Bike Mentorship program

Have you been wanting to bike for transportation but don’t know how to start? Have questions about route planning or carrying cargo on a bike? Or are you an experienced cyclist ready to share these skills with new riders?

If so, sign up for our Bike Mentorship Program! Let us know how much experience you have, where you want to go, and what you want to do, and we’ll pair you with a volunteer who can show you the ropes!

What this program is: This program is designed to help people navigate transportation cycling in Jersey City and Hudson County. Our mission is to make it less daunting to ride for work, activities, or shopping.

What this program is not: This program is not a learn to ride program. You should be comfortable with riding a bike in a controlled environment before signing up*. This program is also not a coaching program, and is not designed to increase your fitness levels or speed.

All volunteer mentors will be vetted and approved by the Bike JC Board prior to working with Mentees. Bike JC will make every effort to ensure that mentors are safe and knowledgeable, but is not responsible for the actions of mentors.
