Sunday, September 23, 2012 from noon to 3 by the Edgemont Park House in Montclair just off Valley Road. This event is a fun get-together for anyone who likes being outdoors, sharing food with friends and neighbors, and enjoying local musicians giving their all in the spirit of community. Grab a picnic blanket, lace up your sneakers, slap on a backpack or saddle up your bike and head over to Montclair’s historic memorial park!
Music will be provided by Big Mamou (foot-stomping zydeco), the Passing Notes (Montclair High School’s youth-run a capella group), and the TNT Ramblers (original and traditional blues).
This is a pot-luck event, with tables set up so we can share our food together.
Co-sponsors include Serendipity Cafe, Terra Tea Salon, the Unitarian Universalist Congregation at Montclair, and Montclair Emergency Services for the Homeless.
Bike&Walk Montclair’s goal is to to help make Montclair safer and more appealing for bicyclists and pedestrians and to improve options for bicycling and walking. Since 2002, Bike&Walk Montclair has held town-wide promotional events, advocated for safer streets, has facilitated the development of a Bicycle and Pedestrian Action Plan, and helped make Montclair become one of the best towns for biking and walking in the State.
The Picnic Bike-In is a new event to meet and greet others who love outdoor activities and want to make your community and even better place for walking and biking.
The event begins at 12:00 p.m. on Sunday, September 23rd near the Edgemont Park House, the small building next to the lake at Edgemont Park. In the event of rain, we’ll gather inside the building.
Participants under the age of 16 must wear helmets if they’re biking (it’s the law) and we encourage bikers over the age of 16 to wear helmets as well.
