Mayor Bert Steinmann, the Ewing Green Team and the Ewing Recreation Department are pleased to announce the third annual Community Bike Ride, to be held as a part of the 2017 Community Fest event. The event, that will take place on Saturday, September 23, 2017 from 8am to 11am, will start and end at Campus Town at The College of New Jersey.
With September being Prostate Cancer Awareness Month, the theme for this year’s ride is, “Bike Riding for a Healthier You,” and all proceeds from the event will be donated to the American Cancer Society’s Run for Dad event in support of prostate cancer awareness and research.
Individuals or teams, ages 18 years and older are encouraged to register early, as there is a maximum number of 50 riders allowed.
“We would love participants to sign up as individuals or come as a team of friends, family members or co-workers,” said EGT Member and Bike Ride Coordinator, Garry Keel.
The Ride registration fee is $20 until September 16, and $25 thereafter. All persons registering by September 16 will receive a T-shirt. Day-of-event registration will begin at 8am.
The bike ride will tour Ewing Township, and include appropriate rest stops. There is an 8-mile route designed for the casual rider and an 18-mile route planned for the more experienced rider. When you have completed your ride, make sure to head over to Ewing’s Community Fest celebration where you can meet your neighbors and enjoy a celebration of community in Ewing.
The Ewing Green Team (www.ewinggreenteam.org) was established in 2009 by municipal resolution under the auspices of the Ewing Environmental Commission, and is part of the statewide Sustainable Jersey effort (www.sustainablejersey.com). The Ewing Green Team envisions a Ewing Township that incorporates sustainability into the actions and decision-making processes of community members and municipal offices to create and maintain sustainable ways of living; build strong and diverse economic opportunities; and cultivate a community that welcomes people from all walks of life.
