Welcome to the new Princeton Freewheelers website. We offer over 900 rides annually for cyclists at all levels. Feel free to check our ride calendar to review current ride listings. Nonmembers are invited to join our rides, but insurance requirements allow one ride before joining the club. Annual membership fees are $25 for individuals and $35 for families. Note that helmets are required and your bike must be in good working condition. Members also are invited to attend several social that occur throughout the year.
The 2017 Holiday Party (December 9th) was a huge success; over 110 members and guests attended in spite of the snowy weather and a good time was had by all.
Per an email sent to members recently, we need volunteers to fill key positions to plan and stage the 2018 Event. The following critical positions are available:
Event Chair – Responsible for overseeing the entire event
Rest Stop coordinator: coordinates the volunteers at each rest stop (position filled!)
Rest Stop Food purchaser: Plans, purchases and plans distribution of the rest stop food
Road Painting Chair: coordinates road painting with volunteers
For those interested in volunteering, contact Ira Saltiel for additional information and to “sign up”.
Our former club president, Pat Van Hise, organized and reported back about a trip to the historic Walnford House and Mill in Upper Freehold, New Jersey:
The Walnford event was enjoyed by 11 PFW members. After using Walnford for a rest stop during many rides, the group took the opportunity to learn about early life at Walnford through a guided tour and a beautiful presentation of teas, cookies, and cakes complete with authentic recipes.
