Chasing George All Around - Free Bike Ride and Historical Tour
Sun, May 21, 2017, 8:00 AM – 2:00 PM EDT
The Princeton Free Wheelers bicycle club and Greater Mercer TMA are teaming up with area historical societies to bring cyclists back in time. We’ll ride about 40 miles with 5 stops for historical talks - along the Lawrence Hopewell Trail to Lawrenceville and Pennington, then on roads to Washington Crossing, then on the D&R Canal Feeder Path to Trenton and back up the D&R Canal Path to Princeton. We’ll arrive just in time for the 4th annual Princeton Ciclovia, where Quaker Rd is open to cyclists and pedestrians until 4pm.
Enjoy a relaxed day biking, with historical talks in Lawrenceville, Pennington, Washington Crossing, Trenton and Princeton. Please pack your lunch and drinks, as opportunities to buy food along the way will be limited.
For a shorter ride, you might join us in Trenton on the Chasing George ride to Princeton - 10 miles with historical talks in Trenton and Princeton.
Event partners: REI, Harts Cyclery, Historical Society of Princeton, Princeton Bicycle Advisory Committee, Lawrence Historical Society, Hopewell Valley Historical Society and Trenton Historical Society.
