Mark your calendar for Saturday, April 30, 2011, 10:00 AM.

This bike ride will start at 10:00 AM sharp, at the Kingwood Boat Launch just one mile south of Frenchtown on Route 29. Rain or Shine!

Here are some important highlights of this bike ride:

  • This bike ride will be on flat ground on a defunct rail road that is now a trail (rails to trail).
  • We will be riding on the historic Delaware & Raritan trail.
  • The scenery will be awesome. Along the way we will be able to view the serenity of the Delaware River and canals that are parallel with the trail. We also stop along the way to rest and view interesting sites like the Prallsville Mills.
  • An interesting bit of history – George Washington crossed the Delaware River just south of where we will be.
  • Our destination will be Lambertville for the annual “Shad Festival,” which starts at 12:30pm.  The festival features the area’s finest artists and crafters, great food, and family entertainment.  You are on your own at the festival once your arrive, BUT WE WILL MEET AT 2PM at the “Beverage Garden” under the bridge along the river for a GOODBYE GET-TOGETHER.  Then you may ride back to your cars at the Kingwood Boat Launch at your leisure.  Please click here to learn more about the Shad Festival.

This bike ride will be on flat ground on a defunct rail road that is now a trail (rails to trail).  Motorized vehicles are not  allowed to use the trail and there are only a few places where cars cross the trail. The ride is a comfortable 24 mile round trip and is suitable for intermediate to advanced riders.  It is also a moderate tune up bike ride if you are planning on participating in the  NY Five Boro Bike Ride. I recommend mountain bikes or hybrid bikes for this ride since the trail is composed of hard packed dirt. There will be plenty of food at the festival. Be sure to bring an ample amount of cash.

Please bring the usual necessities for the bike ride e.g., water, rain gear, sun blocker, bike lock, and a good sense of humor.

Approximate driving time from Morristown to the Kingwood parking lot is 45 minutes.  Directions for Kingwood Boat Launch parking area:

Please GPS or Map Quest this address:

Cycle Corner
52 Bridge Street
Frenchtown, NJ 08825

After you get to the Cycle Corner bike shop and assuming you are passing it on the left, make an immediate left on Route 29 South. From there travel about one mile and lo0k for the Kingwood Boat Launch parking area on the right side. The trail itself is conveniently next to the parking lot.

Please contact Olivier Monod if you have any questions.
