Covered Bridge Ride from Ringoes NJ

Covered Bridge Ride from Ringoes NJ

Yesterday the club offered a 65 mile ride that was to leave from East Amwell Elementary School in Ringoes NJ. There were going to be four historic covered bridges on the ride. I was kind of hoping I could go on the ride, but things just didn’t work out. I kind of wonder which four bridges were included. I sketched out a 57 mile ride from East Amwell Elementary School that includes six historic covered bridges. CLICK HERE to see a map of the hypothetical ride.

The ride I devised hits the Green Sergeants Bridge on Rosemont Ringoes Road (CR 604). Next it hits the Frankenfield Bridge on Cafferty Road in Bucks County. The next bridge hit doesn’t look like a covered bridge because it is missing a roof, but it is built like a covered bridge otherwise. It’s the Tohikon Bridge in Ralph Stover State Park. Then there is Cabin Run Bridge on Covered Bridge Road, and the Loux Covered Bridge on Carversville Road. The final covered bridge hit is just south of New Hope on Van Sandt Road. It’s called the Van Sandt Covered Bridge.

    The ride leader has since told me that the four bridges covered in the ride were: Green Sergeants, Cabin Run, Frankenfield, and Erwinna.

    If you don’t take a LEFT turn on Tinicum Creek Road at about Mile 18.4, and just continue straight on River Road (Route 32) until just before Frenchtown, you can add two more historic covered bridges: Uhlerstown and Erwinna. Just go LEFT on Uhlerstown Hill Road and cross the Uhlerstown CB. Continue up the “killer hill.” At T go LEFT on Upper Tinicum Church Road and at T go LEFT on Geigel Hill Road in order to cross the Erwinna CB. Then go RIGHT on Headquarters Road and at T go RIGHT on Tinicum Creek Road. You’ll now be back on the 57 mile loop. Doing the bike ride this way will get you EIGHT covered bridges and probably be around 65 miles long.
