Board walk, beach view.

Excellent and easy as always.

love this spot. great beach town vibes, all the locals are cool, many live on the east end; closer twrd the beginning of the boardwalk. the west end ("n.y. Street" & the ending of boardwalk) is heavily populated w. summer bungalow rentals with a younger crowd.
*But the Boardwalk -since sandy- is new & amazing. love that smooth fake wood / plastic stuff, with the different facing planks for walking Vs. something on wheels! def. great 2 ride on. also, take a sunset walk with a significant other and it's sure to have a good night!

Great for running, walking or biking. Best at non-peak traffic hours (i.e. avoid summer weekend days if possible) as some are not too aware or considerate of those exercising and those moving more quickly can be obnoxious towards the leisurely. This is a minor issue as overall the scenery and vibe are great. They've kept the boardwalk (which is in great shape after being re-done following Sandy) mostly non-commercial, though some signs of change are creeping in.

Flat and easy. Can get a little windy at time and always a little cooler. Try not to get run over by bikers in the middle of Boardwalk

Great on the beach cruisers. I have seen whales breaching early morning.

I love this ride! Beautiful oceanfront scenery, a designated bike lane down the center of the boardwalk, snack and refreshment areas and plenty of summer sights. The boardwalk is approximately 2.1 miles in total length (4.3+/- miles round trip) but I occasionally like to venture off the planks and bike west through the "state streets" on Ocean View Avenue into through the West End Shopping District. There I bike past the restaurants, taverns and shops on West Beech Street and head back eastward before jumping back onto the boardwalk at New York Avenue and ride the boardwalk back to Neptune Avenue (giving me approximately a 6-mile total ride). This is absolutely one of my favorite summertime rides. I plan to also get out there in the Fall and early Winter to ride as the weather allows.
