The TdR was a great success! It was wonderful for the team to connect with alumni and cycling enthusiasts from around the community. We are especially grateful to the Colavita riders and their parents who joined us to tour the campus on wheels!
Post-ride the Rutgers/Colavita crew discuss plans for a training ride.
