RTC's 8th Annual Greenway Sojourn Under Way

Take 350 riders, ranging in age from 4 to 90 and hailing from 30 different states. Spend seven days riding 250 scenic miles through Pennsylvania and New Jersey on some of the most historic rail-trails and towpaths in the nation. And, for good measure, add in amazing points of interest -- not the least of which is the Battleship New Jersey in Camden, where the participants bunked down for the first night of their journey.

That's the recipe for Rails-to-Trails Conservancy's 8th Annual Greenway Sojourn, which runs from July 17-24.

And while it's an amazing adventure, there's more to this year's Sojourn than an unforgettable bike ride. It began in Camden on Sunday with a rally to celebrate one trail victory -- the start of a long-awaited, federal TIGER grant-funded improvement project to the road leading to the Ben Franklin Bridge -- and to call attention to the importance of safe, convenient walking and biking options as an integral part of sound transportation policy.
