On Friday March 23rd, BCGP affiliate group Bike Camden County held its first Supporter Social of the year at Cooper River Distillers in downtown Camden. It was definitely one of our coolest event venues, with barrels holding aging bourbon stacked against one wall, the ancient (yet functional) copper still in another corner, and the NJT RiverLINE trains passing so close to the building that it shook. We also had an awesome food cart out front.

Oh yeah, bikes were discussed:

Our Regional Planner Leonard Bonarek served as emcee and gave some updates, and Research Director John Boyle gave folks the low down on the Ben Franklin Bridge Ramp Project, our efforts to get Camden City to commission a bike/ped plan, and Camden City’s upcoming pilot program with ofo to pilot the viability of dockless bikeshare.

Next up, Patrick Farley of Cross County Connection TMA gave info on Safe Routes to School efforts in the NJ suburbs, as well as many other bike/ped/transit updates in the region.

The event was well attended. We saw a lot of new faces for a Camden County event, including Alicia Fields-Murphy of Hammonton Kickstand Crew, and Rebecca Kreck from our new Gloucester County affiliate group, and several others. It was a great night, and we look forward to updating you on all of the great events that Bike Camden County is planning for this riding season. Check out their facebook page to keep in the loop!
