Ringoes – Rosemont-Lambertville Loop

I’m a weekend bicycle warrior – here’s recent pics from my favorite loop. Rolling Hunterdon County hills and historic hamlets. Scenic vistas, pubs and bookstores line the route. Check it out:
Start in Ringoes

Hunterdon County Fairgrounds – Rt. 179.
Something’s always cooking at Mom’s – downtown Ringoes
Landis House – built 1750
Academy of Arts & Science – 1876-1909.
Publishing house for Dr. Cornelius Larison and his “Fonic Speling Wurks in Orthoepy” (sic)
Ringoes train station – Black River & Western line still runs trains from Flemington to Lambertville
eat a peach or tomato – NJ Fresh farmstands along the way
horse country
Headquarters Farm – 1735
… and the road goes on forever…
this house is for sale!

Stop for Water in Sergeantsville

Sergeantsville Post Office
Sergeantsville General Store
Sergeantsville Inn – fine dining and pub.
Green Sergeant’s Bridge (1872) – last public covered bridge in NJ.
lovely cottage just across the creek from the covered bridge. My favorite!
gorgeous farm presents a view as I struggle up the hill and into Rosemont

Go Slow through Rosemont

The Cafe is Open -
“…there was music in the cafe’s at night and revolution in the air..” (Dylan)

Back down to the River at Prallsville Mills

    Wolfe – you should be doing a local version of “Globe Trekker” for NJN! Seriously, a great photo-tour.
