Princeton students and staff ride 20 new UBikes from Queens to Princeton

A group of approximately 20 cyclists – including University students and staff, as well as members of the community – will ride on Sunday, Oct. 25, from the Worksman Cycles factory in the Ozone Park neighborhood of Queens, N.Y., to Princeton, N.J.

The UBikes program, through which abandoned bicycles from around the University campus are repaired and rented to campus members, has purchased a fleet of nearly 100 new, customized bicycles from New York-based manufacturer Worksman Cycles. While over 80 of the new bikes were shipped to Princeton University in mid-September and subsequently distributed to residents of the University's Forbes College residential complex, the remaining 20 were held at the factory in Queens in anticipation of the mid-October ride.
