Sights and details from the 2011 NJ Bike and Walk Summit

Without a doubt the 2011 New Jersey Bike and Walk Summit hosted by the NJ Bike and Walk Coalition was a great success.  The event was held in the beautifully exquisite Masonic Temple directly across the Trenton Barracks and a block form the State House.
For a general gist of the days events, the summit agenda pretty much covers most of what you need to know.  The expected highlight of the day was the keynote address given by Rutgers' and New Jersey's own Prof. John Pucher, famous the world over for his groundbreaking bicycle and pedestrian research.  As is typical of the man, he gave one of his memorable presentations that had the crowed laughing and roweled up. However there was much more to the summit including a number of neat and unexpected highlights that were not on the schedule.
