A cold, wet day couldn’t keep Henry S. Webber (above), executive vice chancellor for administration, from riding his bicycle through a ribbon dedicating the new bicycle path through the Danforth Campus Oct. 19. Partners from the Great Rivers Greenway District, the City of St. Louis and St. Louis County, and Clayton and University City participated in the celebration. The bike path through campus is part of the Centennial Greenway, a 20-mile trail that, when completed, will run from Forest Park through the Danforth Campus and University City, Mo., to Creve Coeur County Park in St. Louis County and into St. Charles County.

The ribbon-cutting event was part of Campus Sustainability Week activities, which also included an Alternative Transportation Fair inside the Mallinckrodt Center that featured free bicycle repairs, food, informational booths and more.
