Bike to All Points West Festival at Liberty State Park

Not the most important topic I could be blogging about at the moment but I thought this was pretty cool and worthy of a mention.


The All Points West Music and Arts Festival is advertising that they will have bicycle parking available at the festival and are encouraging people to arrive be bike. From their webpage:

It's now easier than ever to walk, roll or ride from the Jersey City/Hoboken area to Liberty State Park! You can drive or ride the Light Rail, too, but the most scenic route is along the Hudson River Waterfront Walkway. Biking along this route leads you past many landmarks, such as the LeFrak lighthouse, Marina Park, and the old Hudson & Manhattan Railroad Powerhouse.

There will be bike racks at the main festival gate; all you need to do is bring your own lock!

Hopefully they'll have more than this but I'm confident they will since they barely mention driving to the festival. It's the last means to get there that they mention on their website.


Do you know why its called "All Points West?"

'Why is it called "All Points West" when it's on the East Coast????'

"The festival's name is inspired by the area's rich history, particularly Ellis Island and the NJ Central Railroad terminal located on the festival site, where many arriving immigrants boarded trains for ALL POINTS WEST."
