George Washington Bridge (New York / New Jersey)

It was my dream come true when we agreed to go bike riding on the George Washington Bridge between New York City and Fort Lee, NJ. I totally loved the experience and wanted to share the "know-how" for other enthusiasts like me.

Photos to share:
What to expect?
  • Of course it is very scenic and beautiful on both sides
  • Riders should keep to their right always
  • You are not allowed to take pictures near the security booths; but elsewhere on the bridge is okay
  • No place to sit on the bridge
  • Not wide enough to ride side by side
  • Watch out for other riders
  • Slowdown as you come down the bridge; it is very steep and narrow
  • There are beautiful parks at the bottom of the bridge on the NY side
  • Fort Lee has a few Seafood restaurants on the Main Street which seemed to attract a lot of crowd
Accessing the GWB Entrance (Fort Lee, NJ):

  • There are public parking available in Fort Lee where you can park for about 50 cents an hour
  • Don't forget your water bottle, helmet and sneakers
  • If you wish to go around places in New York City, it is not a bad idea to bring along your GPS too!
  • The entrance gate is on Hudson Terrace which  is at the intersection of Lemoine Avenue and Bruce Reynolds Blvd. (Bridge Plaza South), Hudson Terrace can be reached by proceeding east on Bruce Reynolds Blvd. (toward the bridge).
  • Hudson Terrace is the cross street at the "T" intersection at the end of Bruce Reynolds Boulevard.
  • Cross Hudson Terrace at this intersection, make a left and proceed north.
  • Go about two blocks, and you will find the entrance ramp to the south sidewalk on your right (before the overpass that leads to the bridge).
  • The entrance ramp to the north sidewalk is on the other side of the bridge overpass.
  • Don't worry if these directions are a little confusing, you will see other riders who may show you the entrance.
When you do, please sare your experience...

Beautiful post. Nice pictures. I have visited there. But I am prejudiced. I love the Golden Gate Bridge, the most photographed object in the United States.

Oops. I have to make a clarification. The most photographed "man made" object in the United States is the Golden Gate Bridge.
