The annual West Windsor BikeFest will take place over Labor Day weekend, and details are usually available in May-June. Rides are scheduled from 1.5 miles within the park to 40 miles, for adult cyclists only. Click here for more information and registration.
A bike rodeo helps educate young riders about the rules of the road and safe riding practices and is supported through the volunteer efforts of the Princeton Area Juniorettes.
BikeFest focuses on bringing awareness of safe cycling and enables families to experience bicycling at various skill levels. Participants discover that West Windsor has many roads that will accommodate cyclists.
BikeFest is run by a small committee led by Dan Gerstenhaber and supported by Ken Jacobs of the West Windsor Division of Recreation and Parks. Local businesses support the event and many volunteers support registration, rest stops, sweeping, and feeding the event participants. Volunteers are always welcome. For more information go to West Windsor BikeFest.
Funding from BikeFest
The BikeFest committee focuses on safe cycling in West Windsor; funds raised by the event are used to support designated community bicycling improvements. Along with the installation of bike racks in various parts of the township, the BikeFest committee has donated money to help with some of the WWBPA initiatives, most notably the printing of the WWBPA map, Share the Road signs, and bike lockers and bike racks at the Princeton Junction Train Station.
The WWBPA thanks the BikeFest committee for its continued support for safer cycling in West Windsor.
