Trenton Cycling Revolution is an all-volunteer community organization, originally founded in the 1990s. Our mission is to create a safe and healthy environment for bicyclists and pedestrians in Greater Trenton through education, engagement, advocacy and promotion.
For 22 years, we have been coordinating the Tour de Trenton, an annual leisurely ride through Trenton. The Tour de Tour promotes healthy lifestyles and raises awareness of bicycle safety throughout the region, while showcasing the city’s neighborhoods, tourist attractions and many hidden gems for residents and visitors alike.
Please consider these questions and return via email by April 25th. Answers will be posted on our website, shared via social media and to our email list.
