May 4, 2010 – 8:48 am
To celebrate bicycles and art, May’s First Friday Ride will make a quick 45 minute sweep of public art downtown and in University Heights, then end at the Art Cycle opening night at Index Art Center on Broad Street. In keeping with the art/cycle theme, this month’s ride is creative…we’ll spend almost as much time on paths and walkways as on roads (wide & seldom used walkways, that is), take in murals, statues, sculptures, fountains and artistic architectural features. We’ll wind our way through maybe 6 parks, 3 universities and a few hidden historic gems… all in about 45 minutes.
The tour starts out in deep city passing two beautiful train terminals along the way, then heads slowly, diagonally, painlessly uphill to Newark’s largest public sculpture on Bergen Street. Then it’s almost a continuous coast downhill from there.
I’d like to start at 7pm if possible, 7:15 at the latest. Let me know if that’s too early for everyone. A larger map for printing is available here: art tour map

Some amazing synchronicity happening with this mob, they are linked to a gallery called INDEX, and have bicycling inspired art exhibition called Artcycle. Spoooky.
