East Windsor Mayor Janice S. Mironov Proclaims May National Bike Month

FOR RELEASE:  May 18, 2022

East Windsor Mayor Janice S. Mironov, joined by Township police officers, proclaimed May 2022 “National Bike Month” and kicked off the “Use Your Head” safety initiative whereby bicycle helmets are distributed to residents under 16 at no cost. Two bicycle helmet giveaway sessions were held with a final session scheduled on Wednesday, May 25, from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m., at the East Windsor municipal building (16 Lanning Boulevard).

Mayor Mironov’s Proclamation states, “We all recognize that bicycling is an effective means of transportation, an excellent form of recreation, a tool for fitness and promoting a healthy lifestyle, and a means for promoting a cleaner environment.”  Mayor Mironov added, “East Windsor reaffirms our goal to promote the safe use of the bicycle, and to develop and expand programs to improve New Jersey’s bicycling environment and opportunities for bicycling.  With an abundance of parks, trails and green spaces, East Windsor is the ideal place to enjoy biking individually or with family or friends.”

The Township then will implement Phase 2 of this bicycle safety initiative from June 1 through July 31, during which Mayor Mironov and Council Members and Township police officers will distribute form “summonses” to young people, recognizing children wearing helmets and asking them to sign a pledge “to use a safety helmet when using a bicycle, skateboard or rollerblades.”  This step will enable them to be entered in a drawing for prizes, which will take place on Tuesday August 2 at the Township “National Night Out”.
