Celebrate Bicycling and Walking

D&R Canal Biking and Walking

The WWBPA joins the East Coast Greenway, the New Jersey Bike and Walk Coalition, and the Trenton Cycling Revolution on Saturday August 14 for a 14-mile family-friendly ride on a newly constructed section of the D&R Canal/East Coast Greenway.

The ride starts at 9:30 a.m. at the Brearly House in Lawrenceville along Princeton Pike/Route 206 (also a link to the Lawrence Hopewell Trail). Because the route is partially unpaved, hybrids or mountain bikes will work best.

Elected officials and their staff are invited, so this is a great chance to show how popular bicycling is in the Garden State (ranked the eighth most bicycle-friendly state in the nation by the League of American Bicyclists) and to encourage them to support bicycle-friendly projects.
