Members of Trenton Cycling Revolution Commute By Bike with Mayor Gusciora to City Hall

Trenton, N.J. – Mayor W. Reed Gusciora today kicked off National Bike to Work Day with members of Trenton Cycling Revolution during a City Hall bike commute in downtown Trenton.

Mayor Gusciora was joined by Jacque Howard, President of Trenton Cycling; Wills Kinsley, Director of Operations for Trenton Cycling Revolution and Sonia Szczesna, Director of Active Transportation, Tri-State Transportation Campaign. The trip went along the D&R Canal Path (part of the 800+ mile regional trail network known as the Circuit Trails) the Black Lives Matter street mural on E State, and the historic N.J. State House before ending at City Hall.

In the United States, 40 percent of all trips are less than two miles, making cycling a healthy and pollution-free way to get around locally. The City of Trenton has been making strides to improve its infrastructure to ensure walking and biking is safe for all residents and visitors by advancing Circuit Trail projects, improving street design through a Complete & Green Streets pattern book, implementing tactical urbanism projects, and embarking on a Vision Zero Action Plan.

Before the ride, TCR board Jun King presented Mayor Gusciora with a customized helmet with gold leaf and pinstripes by GroundUp Speed Shop to represent Trenton in style when he participates in bicycle and skateboard events in the city.

“Every day is bike to work day for someone here in the Capital City, especially for our essential workers who have continued to commute to work throughout this pandemic,” said Trenton Mayor W. Reed Gusciora. “We are working hard here to make our streets accessible for all Trentonians. I’m happy to hear that the legislature is also looking to ensure the safety of all who walk, ride, and roll through a safe passing bill for the state.”

 “Trenton Cycling Revolution is looking forward to working with the City to continue to make strides in enhancing its street infrastructure by implementing its Complete Streets policy as well as its upcoming Vision Zero action plan to make sure that all Trentonians can travel through the City safely,” said Jacque Howard, President of Trenton Cycling Revolution.

“As the state recovers from the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, we must reflect on the lessons we've learned from quick changes to our streetscapes and create more places for people to safely walk, bike, and roll,” said Sonia Szczesna, Director of Active Transportation for Tri-State Transportation Campaign. “Now is our chance to encourage and foster this increase in cycling for our daily commutes by implementing Complete & Green Streets projects and advancing Vision Zero across the state.”

“There are many new riders out on the streets and to make sure they fully enjoy cycling and get where they are going safely takes a city, county, and state effort,” said Wills Kinsley, Director of Operations for Trenton Cycling Revolution.
