notice: an organized ride around town on New Years Day


Princeton Freewheelers to Tour Former Perimeter of Borough

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.

PS - having never heard of the "Perimeter Bicycling Association of America", 
       I paid a quick visit to their website. It seems to be a Tuscon-based 
       organization ... they had an article about "L'Eroica" which is a really
       interesting (to me, at least) event featuring vintage bikes, unpaved
       roads etc. Always the first Sunday in October, in Tuscany (not Tucson).
       If there isn't an Eroica-style event around here, hey why not launch one ?
