Come out and ride and clear the cobwebs from your late-night partying on New Years Eve for the Annual WJW New Years Day ride. This will be a low-pace, off-road ride on the D & R Canal on the Jersey and PA sides. This year we'll do something a little different than previous years ... we'll start start in Lambertville, cross over to PA and ride up to Lumberville, walk our bikes across the bridge to Bulls Island, and return. Off-road bikes only. The path on the PA side is a little rough and can be wet. Knobby tires are optimal, but you can probably get by with a hybrid. No narrow tires. There's no chance of getting lost, so cyclists can ride at their own pace. We'll stop at the halfway point at the Lumberville General Store to warm up if needed. The ride begins and ends at the parking area near the Holcombe Jimison Museum just north of Lambertville -- near the 202 bridge. This ride is 'weather permitting', so be sure to check for a late cancellation. Helmets required.

Winter Cycling

Too many cyclists hang up their bikes at the first sign of snowflakes. They’re missing out: As your body struggles to stay warm in the cold, you not only burn more calories, but your body also learns to use oxygen much more efficiently, according to research from Northern Arizona University. Most importantly, riding around in the snow can be incredibly fun. This is what you should—and shouldn’t—do to make the most of your winter cycling season.

I LOVE riding in Hunterdon County! The plateau in Kingwood to the rolling hills in Readington. Sometimes a challenge, but always beautiful scenery!

Kurt Grabfelder:

I appreciate being a club member because it makes it much easier to get riders together for a group ride.  Riding with a group is safer and, I think, it brings out the best effort in you.  I like associating with like minded people who are interested in biking, fitness and nutrition.
