|View from Bayonne Bridge Between New Jersey and Staten Island|
Mark and I rode our bikes from our apartment in Newport south through Liberty State Park, through the southern section of Jersey City, into Bayonne (Nancy works there 3 days per week) and across a huge bridge to Staten Island. Once on Staten Island, we wound our way from the bridge up to where the Staten Island ferry crosses to Manhattan (it's free!). We rode it over to Manhattan, and then biked up to the World Trade Center PATH station. It was extremely crowded -- tourists everywhere! The day was hot, the 20-mile ride a bit grueling, and I had a bit of bridge-a-phobia while crossing the Bayonne Bridge, but all-in-all, it felt good to get out for a challenging bike ride, and to get over to Staten Island.
