The Bicycle and Pedestrian Resource Center is proud to present our favorite moments in active transportation news from New Jersey in 2013, in no particular order. From becoming the leader in Complete Streets to providing communities with new resources to improve bicycle and pedestrian safety, 2013 was a great year for walking and biking in New Jersey.
