Flemington-Readington Route

18 miles
Road Route

This beautiful 18 mile road bike route takes the cyclist from Flemington through the rolling farmlands of Readington Township. Route 523 is a busy road, but has a wide shoulder. Cyclists should ride single file until turning right onto Barley Sheaf Road. Once on Barley Sheaf Road, there are minimal cars, beautiful scenery and just enough challenge for the rider to keep it interesting. The route begins and ends at V5 Cycles, one of two Flemington bike shops. The other, Pete’s Bike & Fitness Shoppe, is nearby. If you are visiting the area and plan on staying in Flemington, accommodations can be found at Main Street Manor on Main Street, and The Hampton Inn on Royal Road near Route 202.

Rest stops offering food are limited along this route, but there are farm stands on Hillcrest Road during the warmer months.

Farmland Ride (Oct 15-18)

The COVID-19 pandemic has forced the organizers to "reimagine" the THIRD annual in-person ride through the picturesque farmlands of Hunterdon County on October 18, 2020 (originally scheduled for 6/14/2020). They will instead host a Farmland Virtual Challenge Ride, which will take place over the weekend of October 16-18.
