RTC's Work in Camden, N.J., Opens a New World for Students, Residents

Rails-to-Trails Conservancy's Camden Youth Cycling Learning and Exercising program (CYCLE) is about getting young students on bikes, teaching them how to ride safely, and showing them that with a bike and a pathway, the world is their oyster. But the program is also opening up new options for biking and walking. Thanks to our partners at the Campbell Soup Foundation, the William Penn Foundation and the Coopers Ferry Development Association, this work is helping to revitalize this former center of manufacturing on the banks of the Delaware River.
