PLAINFIELD, NJ - The New Jersey State Bicycle Championships event was held in Plainfield for a third year in a row.

The races were held in the downtown area, and TAPinto Plainfield was there to capture some of the excitement.

 

In addition to the many bicycle races, local food vendors were on hand, serving up tasty fare as a part of the Taste of Plainfield.

On Tuesday, Mayor Adrian O. Mapp had said, "We're excited about what will happen this coming Sunday.  The city of Plainfield will be transformed into a race track for these bike cyclists, and it is something that we are very excited about, not only because of the bike race, but the other things that are going to be happening as a result of this race in partnership with other entities, such as the unveiling of the LimeBike, such as the opportunity for our young people, our kids, to be exposed to wholesome recreational activities by being encouraged to take advantage of cycling in the outdoors so that they can live a healthier lifestyle."

Querido Plainfield, 

Todos esperan el verano; los días son más calientes y largos, y la madre tierra se pone su mejor vestido mientras las frutas se maduran en el sol y las flores ondean un alegre "hola".

The Woman in the Window by A.J. Finn (William Morrow, 2018)

 

A friend, whose opinion on literature I respect greatly, reported to me recently that she had just finished reading A.J. Finn's debut novel, The Woman in the Window. Of it she said, “I wish I hadn't finished it,” which I interpreted to mean, “It was so good I'm sorry that I finished it.” ...

When the Men Go Off to War by Victoria Kelly

Victoria Kelly's first published volume of poetry, When the Men Go Off to War, is a wonder in that poems can be written so beautifully about the subject of war.

Into the Water by Paula Hawkins

Into the Water by Paula Hawkins (Riverhead Books, 2017)
