Ringoes to Lambertville Loop

33 miles
Road Route

Experienced bicyclists knows that anytime one is by a river, all roads go up, and this route is no exception. Head up to the Hunterdon Plateau to begin this ride. Once you reach Ferry Road, 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.

This route can be started anywhere on the route map. The map shows the route starting at the Black River & Western Railroad parking lot. At approximately mile 5.5 and again at 27.5, there are a number of possible rest stops. The Sergeantsville General Store and Bagel Barn & Deli offer the road cyclist plenty of choices for snacks, breakfast, lunch or just a stop along the way. If you are riding during the weekend, The Stockton Market is another choice for available rest rooms, full meals or just a snack with a very large bicycle rack out front.

Wheefine Bicycle Shop, located on Route 518, caters to all cyclists. The “old world” feel of the shop makes for an interesting and historical stop.

When you arrive in Lambertville, enjoy the many unique restaurants, art galleries and boutique shops.

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.
