Mayor's Ride of the Falling Leaves 2014 - In Pictures!

PBAC Chair, Steve Kruse, at the start of 'The Ride of the Falling Leaves'

PBAC's annual community bike ride, the "Ride of the Falling Leaves" took place last Sunday. It was more like 'the ride of the blowing leaves' because there was a pretty brisk breeze, but a great crowd of local cyclists of all ages joined in for a scenic tour of Mountain Lakes Park. This ride was started last year at the special request of Mayor Liz Lempert, who joined in for the tour.

Thanks to Princeton police for marshaling the crossing of Route 206.
Thanks to David Cohen for brewing hot cider for the riders to enjoy at Mountain Lakes House!
And thanks to all the participants for a great afternoon out.

The riders assemble...

…and they're off! The tour started with a lap of Community Park South.

Mayor Lempert introduces Nat Case of INCase, LLC, a cartographer, who was showing the latest draft of the Princeton Bike Map, a joint project with PBAC, which will be published early next year.

'Bike Ride' sigs so people didn't get lost. And a really awesome bike.
