To mark the beginning of consolidation on January 1,2013, Dan Rappoport will lead a morning and an afternoon bike ride around the former perimeter of the Borough of Princeton, going in opposite directions. Mr. Rappoport is one of the incorporators of the Princeton Freewheelers, and a member of the Perimeter Bicycling Association of America.
The distance for the ride is 9 miles. Riders will assemble in the parking lot at 400 Witherspoon St. at 9:30 a.m., and meet the leader near the bike rack on the sidewalk. The tour will begin promptly at 9:45 a.m. The afternoon ride will start 15 minutes after the reorganization celebration is over, from the same location.
Riders should have their bikes in working order and expect any traffic conditions. There will be a few hills. Those who participate on both rides will get to pedal in what used to be two different towns along some roadbeds.
Mr. Rappoport has obtained copies of Township and Borough letterheads. Those interested in attending either bike ride and who would like copies of the letterheads should contact the organizer at (609) 924-9417 or (609) 933-6258.
In the event of snow, ice, or rain, or if the temperature is below 25 degrees, the ride will be cancelled until there is a consolidation somewhere else in New Jersey.
