KSS Gets Pedaling in Princeton

Today marked the inaugural ride and official launch of the KSS Bike Program in our Princeton office. With such beautiful weather, Ben Poulin, Justin Bienvenue, and I each rode one of the firm’s three “new” vintage bikes downtown for lunch. Afterwards, we walked through the Princeton Farmers Market at Hinds Plaza and to our surprise we were stopped by a representative from Whole Earth Center. As part of their “Random Acts of Community” project, each of us received a care package thanking us for riding our bikes. Inside there were gift cards and vouchers for local businesses including: The Bent Spoon, Blue Point Grill, Yankee Doodle Tap Room, The Princeton Record Exchange and more. It just goes to show there are many benefits to riding a bike, and not just the obvious ones.

The KSS Bike Program consists of three vintage bikes which were purchased from the Visiting Nurses Association of Somerset Hills’ biannual Rummage Sale. It’s a small way for each of us to be more sustainable, reducing greenhouse gas emissions if we have to run out for lunch or make an errand (not to mention a great way to get active during the workday!). They are available to all employees for recreational use and I look forward to riding to lunch with everyone.
