 Two Bike Ride Reststops in the Brunswicks, NJ

These two reststops can be found on Route 27 north of Princeton. Both are ideal for bike rides that include the popular Canal Road starting on Route 518 and goes to Amwell Road. As a kid I used to have Monday night time trial races on Canal Road. Most were 5-milers, but some where 10 miles. And then there was the Millstone Grind annual race that covered the entire length of Canal Road. You can turn off of Canal Road at Butler Road, Suydam Road, Jacques Lane, and Blackwell Road to get to these reststops. South Middlebush Road is kind of busy, but it really depends on the day of week and time of day you choose to ride on it. I recommend staying off it as much as possible, but you need not avoid it. And Route 27 is a busy road, but it can be ridden on where it has wide shoulders.

Bike rides from Princeton that use these reststops can focus on the roads around the canal along Canal Road, but they need not focus on them exclusively. Some rides can first visit Hopewell and Montgomery near Skillman before heading over to the canal and back to Princeton. While other rides can head toward Hillsborough and from the Quick Chek head out Henderson Road to go across US Route 1 and into the farmlands in Monmouth Junction and Cranbury.
