Day 225

More than a thousand people took part in the annual Tour de Montclair  this Sunday in my town. The community bike ride is a fundraiser for the nonprofit group Bike&Walk Montclair, which advocates for safe streets, pathways, and biking and walking accessibility  in Montclair and its surrounding towns and parks.

The tour is a great opportunity for families and friends to cycle or walk through town, enjoying our own backyards as summer approaches.

I caught up with the Kansagra family loading up their bikes at the end of their 8-mile ride through town.  Payal Maniar and her husband, Nilesh Kansagra (first and sixth from the left) who just moved to town in March, were joined by a niece and nephew who came out from Princeton for the day with their parents.

Nine-year-old Rohan said the ride was “great,” and his sister, seven-year-old Raina, thought it was “amazing.”  The weather was lovely, and I really love the color of those t-shirts, too!
