Freewalkers lead hikes to honor Bobby Kennedy’s legacy

Monday, April 1 by ezeitler

At our Annual Meeting, Paul Kiczek compelled us with the story of Bobby Kennedy’s 50 mile walk in 1963 which inspired him to start the Freewalkers – a group advocating fitness, adventure and community by organizing epic hikes for everyone. Paul mentioned an NPR story on the 50th anniversary hike that his group undertook in honor of that original adventure. Luckily for us, Paul is located right here in New Jersey so it’s easy and extra fun for us to participate. Several folks from the WWBPA took part in a Trenton to Princeton hike on March 24th. The next event is The Great Canal Walk – Trenton to New Brunswick – on April 6th. Check out the Freewalker’s website for more details on upcoming walks as well as the history of long hikes.

Andy Clarke, Again

Wednesday, December 8 by silvia

Andy Clarke, the president of the League of American Bicyclists, will be the guest speaker at the WWBPA’s annual meeting on March 17.

You may remember that Andy was supposed to speak at our annual meeting in February 2010, only to have it snowed out. So we’ve moved the annual meeting to March and Andy has agreed to come again, fresh from the League’s annual National Bike Summit in Washington D.C.

Save the date and tell your bicycle and/or advocacy buddies. All are welcome! More details closer to the date.

Tonight’s Annual Meeting Cancelled

Thursday, February 25 by JerryFoster

Skiing

Mercer County Park XC Skiing

We regret to have to cancel tonight’s meeting, but weather and safety concerns prevail.  The new annual meeting date will be announced in the near future.  In the meantime, please send us an email with any questions or concerns, and enjoy the snow!

We are working to reschedule with Andy Clarke, our keynote speaker, who leads the League of American Bicyclists, the oldest organized bicycling organization in the country.  The League was founded as the League of American Wheelmen in 1880. Bicyclists, known then as “wheelmen”, were challenged by rutted roads of gravel and dirt and faced antagonism from horsemen, wagon drivers, and pedestrians.

The agenda this year will also feature an optional interactive session, where WWBPA Trustees will collect your ideas for making West Windsor more a more bicycle and pedestrian friendly community.

Stay tuned – we hope everyone will be able to make the new date!
