The Hogback

30 miles
Road Route

This 30 mile scenic ride takes you up beautiful Hogback Road in Franklin Township. The route begins at V5 Cycles, winding its way from Flemington, through historic Clinton, Franklin Township, and then back to Flemington, with one of the nicest five mile descents. If time allows, spend some time in Clinton. Stop into the Clinton Bicycle Shop, LLC located directly across from the Hunterdon Art Museum and the iconic Red Mill. The Clean Plate restaurant is right next door to the bike shop, offering outdoor seating with a spectacular view of South Branch of the Raritan River, historic truss bridge and Red Mill.

Before the ascent up Quakertown Road, consider stopping at Duke's Pizzeria & Restaurant. In addition to pizza and Italian fare, they stock energy bars, offer coffee and can replenish water bottles. Upon return there are plenty of places to eat and drink in the Flemington area.

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.
