CitySmiles, in partnership with the Trenton Cycling Revolution, announced its annual Car-free Park Family and Community Bicycling Day. On Sunday, May 1st from 1:00-4:00pm, Cadwalader Park will be closed to cars so that children, families and community members can have the park to themselves with no car traffic to worry about. While bicyclists need to ride safely all the time around cars, other bicyclists and pedestrians, an afternoon in the park without cars offers a sense of quiet freedom, relaxation and beauty. Bicyclists all riding together in the park at the same time offers camaraderie around the enjoyment of bicycling and exploring the wonderful paths and places in the park. The park day is also a time for families to get their bikes out of their yards and basements, and get their legs moving and in shape. The afternoon is free. Feel free to bring a picnic lunch. All bicyclists must wear a helmet. For more information, please contact lisa@citysmiles.org.

Trenton Cycling Revolution, in partnership with the Boys and Girls Club of Trenton and Mercer County, will host the annual Trenton Bike Tour on Saturday, May 21.

As a part of National Bike Month, the tour aims to both highlight the tourist attractions of the city, and raise awareness of bicycle safety throughout the region for avid, commuting and recreational bicyclists. Registration begins at 8:30 AM, and the ride begins at 9AM. Online registration is available.

After the program, press conference participants signed a proclamation, which can be seen here.
