To Green Princeton Reunions, we can bike there...
The East Coast Greenway Alliance (ECGA) invites all Tiger alumni to enjoy our route by bike to get to Princeton this May. The East Coast Greenway connects Princeton to a 2,900-mile corridor from the Maine border with Canada to Key West, FL - see greenway.org
Reunions 2011 was led by Don Carey of the Class of '51 who biked with his wife all the way from New Hampshire! If you don’t live along the East Coast Greenway, we aim to have bicycles accessible to alumni who fly-in to Philadelphia, Newark or nearby airports as long as there is sufficient demand. Would you like to join us for a ride on Thursday, May 31st?
Last year we had a group ride from the New Brunswick NJ Transit station, going 27 miles along the canal towpath (flat most of the way for those intimidated by hills). Let us know if you'd like to join us (especially if you need a bike rental) or if you plan to bike in on your own.
Princeton alumni can lead by example as the first university alumni to bike en masse to their reunions. To help this initiative take off, you can join Bert Kerstetter '66, Reunions staff and myself on the Reunions By Greenway Committee. We would love a representative from each class interested in participating. We will have shirts for participants. For updates on the effort, visit the Reunions By Greenway webpage at:
Feel free to get in touch with me to discuss the project at dennis (@) greenway.org
We can help Princeton Reunions 2012 be the greenest yet!
