Biking and Hiking With Princeton Adult School

Thursday, September 6 by silvia

Zaitz Preserve WalkPrinceton Adult School’s fall course list includes several sports and outdoor recreation classes, including a “learn to bike” class for adults, a bicycle repair and maintenance class, hiking in New Jersey and more.

The “learn to bike” class, taught by the founder of Bike Exchange, comprises four one-hour classes on Saturday mornings.

The four-session bike maintenance class will be held at Harts Cyclery on Route 31 in Pennington.

The hiking class will take participants to four different areas of the state on Saturdays. There’s also a separate class that spends an October morning exploring the woods at the Institute of Advanced Study with a professor who has studied the woods for more than 40 years.

Details on all courses are on the Princeton Adult School website.

The WWBPA needs your help to clear the Millstone trails of the damage done by Irene.

Join us at 1 p.m. Sunday Sept. 25 in the Millstone Preserve parking lot (Millstone Road). Bring loppers, rakes, and (if you have one) a gas chain saw or trimmer. Don’t forget gloves and bug spray!

Consider it an extension of National Public Lands Day, which is Saturday, Sept. 24. Entrance fees at all national parks across the country will be waived that day. For list of national parks in New Jersey, click here. The day is also a huge nationwide volunteer event; help clean up and maintain our public lands (and that’s more than just the national parks.
