Lambertville Ring Around Ringoes
Hunterdon County has some of the best biking areas in the state and some say some of the best in the country. There are miles and miles of country roads meandering through horse country, farms, woods and along rivers, creeks and streams. Each season (yes, even winter has mild days for biking) has its own unique beauty.
Riders owe it to themselves to bike through Lambertville either before or after this ride and enjoy the galleries, antique shops, restaurants, and other quirky things in this town along the Delaware River. On Union Street, just behind CVS is a coffee shop, Rojos, and an ice cream parlor, oWOWcow.
An experienced biker knows that anytime one is by a river, all roads go up, and this route is no exception. Cyclist will head up to the Hunterdon Plateau and pretty much reach the plateau at the end of Ferry Road. Once there the route is fairly flat and meanders through woods, farmlands and passes many old farmsteads before a nice decent on Upper Creek Road, to the only remaining covered bridge in New Jersey. After a bit of a ride by the creek, the route heads up hill before heading back down to Lambertville.
