More than 800 cyclists pedaled their way Sunday through New Jersey's fourth-largest city for the Tour de Elizabeth.
The ride is 15 miles long and took the cyclists through scenic parks, waterfront paths, the downtown business area and historic neighborhoods of the city.
This was the 21st year for the ride which is organized by Groundwork Elizabeth.
The annual event, which began with only 50 bicyclists when it first started, is spilt up into two parts.
Riders completed 7 1/2 miles and then came back to City Hall for a short break before they finished the rest of the ride.
Many of the streets throughout the city were closed for short periods of time while the cyclists made their way through.
Organizers said the tour gives cyclist a unique opportunity to be able to view the City of Elizabeth in a different light, while also allowing people to spend more quality time with family and friends.
