Winners of the free drawing at the WWBPA's Community Bike Ride

More than 60 bicyclists, including a few youngsters towed by parents, joined the West Windsor Bicycle and Pedestrian Alliance for its third annual Community Bike Ride on Saturday, September 26. We beat the rain by several hours as we rode from WaterWorks to Grover Middle School and back.

It was fabulous to see so many people enjoying themselves using the Township?s bike lanes and co-existing with cars on the road.

Many thanks to West Windsor police for assisting at key intersections, McCaffrey?s for providing food at our rest stop and to AlJon?s for donating a certificate for a free pizza as part of our free drawing for all participants. Many others won bike-related equipment provided by the WWBPA, including David Aderhold, the WW-P school district?s assistant superintendent for pupil services and planning, who won a safety vest. In keeping with the WWBPA?s efforts to encourage more walking and biking, Cheryl Kastrenakes from Greater Mercer Transportation Management Association talked about how to start a walking school bus to get kids to school (they don?t have to run every day!). See gmtma.org or wwbpa.org for more information.
