Bikes rides + a ribbon-cutting on the Trolley Line Trail

The West Windsor Bicycle and Pedestrian Alliance and the Historical Society of West Windsor invite you to join us on a family-friendly bike ride along the Trolley Line Trail and beyond on Saturday, April 23 to celebrate West Windsor’s 225th birthday.

Learn some of West Windsor’s fascinating history, especially around the old trolley line, as we stop along the route.
 
We will host three rides, each limited to just 20 participants and beginning at the Community Park pavilion. Participants will ride as a group.
 
The 10 a.m. ride will include Mayor Marathe and a ribbon-cutting to celebrate the newest section of the trail (between Penn-Lyle Road and Village Road). It will continue using a mix of bike lanes/sidewalk and the South Post multi-use path to Conover Road. We will continue on South Post Road to Mercer Lake depending on traffic related to the regatta on the lake before turning back. Total distance is about 8 miles.
 
The noon ride follows the same route but won’t include the ribbon-cutting and the mayor.
 
The 2 p.m. ride will turn around at Village Road, making it most suitable for elementary school children. Total distance is about 5 1/2 miles.
 
Tickets are $5 for one rider (includes 2 WWBPA ankle bands), $10 for two riders  (includes a WWBPA water bottle), $15 for three riders (includes a WW 225th anniversary T-shirt or mug from the Historical Society) or $20 for up to four riders (includes a WW 225th anniversary T-shirt or mug from the Historical Society and two WWBPA ankle bands). Children 15 and under must be accompanied by an adult, and all participants must sign this waiver. Register for the ride here.
