Somerset Valley YMCA, Hillsborough, NJ
In 2011 I joined two PFW Sunday morning group bike rides that departed from this location. I did not particularly enjoy driving the 13 miles from downtown Princeton to go for the rides, but I enjoyed the company, and the rides turned out to be worthwhile. There are quite a number of good rides that can be had from this location. I suppose my problem with it is that it is not as versatile as other ride locations. Rides to the east and northeast of Hillsborough are not much fun because the roads are just too congested. There are too many homes and businesses there. The two rides I went on headed due north all the way up to Peapack and Gladstone.
CLICK HERE to see a map from Belle Mead to the location of the Somerset Valley YMCA in Hillsborough. I drew the map the way I did to keep things simple. If you are driving from Princeton, then I recommend you head out the Great Road, go through Skillman, and before you get to Belle Mead take a left on East Mountain Road at the Carrier Clinic.
