Spanish Speakers (And Other Volunteers) Wanted!

Help us promote nighttime visibility among “invisible” cyclists and others.

We will be at St. Anthony’s of Padua in Hightstown at 1:30 p.m. on Sunday, Nov. 20 and at St. Paul’s in Princeton at 7 p.m. Monday Nov. 28. At each event, we will give a short presentation in Spanish (and English)  that also includes some basic “rules of the road.” We’ll then offer visibility and safety items such as reflective vests, lights and helmets for half price, funded in part by a generous donation from the West Windsor Policemen’s Benevolent Association. We need people who can help with the presentation as well as Spanish and non-Spanish speakers to help fit helmets, model vests and otherwise encourage “invisible” cyclists to be more visible to motorists at night.

Interested in helping? Email us at wwbikeped@gmail.com

Would your place of worship be interested in a safety presentation? Or have another suggestion? Email us!

    Please help spread the word! We’d love your help, either at one of our events or by talking with friends and neighbors. We also can give you a poster to put up at work. We see lots of people walking or jogging on their neighborhoods streets without reflective gear (or lights), seemingly unaware that they are invisible to motorists.

    I wish more people wore these; I once had some guy try to cross the route 1 jersey barrier at night wearing black clothing…while I was in the left lane. Scared the heck out of me.
