The Greenbush Rd / Rt 303 Bypass officially opened with a ribbon cutting on July 13 attended by RBC members, NYS Senator David Carlucci, Rockland County Legislator Harriet Cornell, Orangetown Supervisor Chris Day and former supervisor and project champion Andy Stewart. Senator David Carlucci secured the $125,000 in state funding necessary for the project to be completed.

RBC President Mike Hays represented the club speaking about the need to create more bike/ped infrastructure. The 1/4 mile path parallels Rt 303 near the site of a fatal crash with a tractor trailer that killed cyclist Robert Carl Pinckert in 2003.
