Community Bike Ride Sept. 26

Thursday, August 27 by sandy

The WWBPA’s third annual family-friendly Community Bike Ride takes place at 2 pm on Saturday, Sept. 26. This year, our route will take us from just outside WaterWorks in Community Park to Grover Middle School (for refreshments courtesy of McCaffrey’s) and back. Total distance is less than eight miles.

The route will follow Slayback Drive, Edinburg Road and Village Road East. Roads will not be closed to traffic. Depending on age and ability, riders can either use the street or the sidewalk. Riders are responsible for their own safety and the WWBPA is not liable for any injuries.

The ride is free, and there are no advance sign-ups. All children must be accompanied by a parent or other adult. Helmets are required for all riders.

All minors must have signed permission forms.
Please click here for a Release and Waiver Form.

Come early for pre-ride safety checks and tips!

Clarksville Road/Avalon Watch

Saturday, August 15 by sandy

Under Construction: Avalon Watch Crossing

After three years of lobbying by the WWBPA, a new crossing is under construction between Avalon Watch apartments and the Village Shops on Clarksville Road. The project, funded by the New Jersey Department of Transportation and Mercer County, should make it safer for bus riders and shoppers to cross the road, particularly in the winter, when visibility is poorer. It includes a pedestrian refuge island in the middle of the road as well as an in-pavement lighting system and flashing signs. The work should be finished by the end of August.
