New Website Promotes
Hunterdon’s Bicycling Assets
From winding county roads, quaint towns, villages, and historic sites, to beautiful scenic vistas and gorgeous natural resources, Hunterdon County offers amazing riding for bicyclists of all ages and abilities.
goHunterdon, the local non-profit dedicated to sustainable transportation, mobility, and safety, has launched a new website, www.bikehunterdon.org, to highlight Hunterdon County’s bicycling assets.
The site features bicycle routes throughout Hunterdon County including road, trail, gravel, and mountain biking opportunities. Each route profile features photos, a detailed description of the ride, and links to local restaurants, coffee shops, pubs, breweries, wineries, and lodging available nearby. Information on local bicycling clubs, touring companies, bike shops, events, and bicycling laws are included on the site as well.
“The Bike Hunterdon initiative was created to highlight Hunterdon County’s unique bicycling culture and promote bicycling in support of the local economy,” says Tara Shepherd, goHunterdon executive director. “Many Hunterdon communities already benefit from visiting cyclists. Our goal is to offer an informative and engaging resource for cyclists to consider Hunterdon County for their next bicycling trip, adds Shepherd.
“We’ll be providing promotional materials to local bed and breakfast inns, hotels, restaurants, breweries, wineries, and other ‘destination’ businesses for inclusion in their marketing,” says Shepherd.
A study by the Outdoor Industry Association found that bicycling participants spend $83 billion on ‘trip-related’ sales and generate $97 billion in retail spending nationally.
“goHunterdon’s “Bike Hunterdon” initiative complements the efforts of the Hunterdon County Office of Economic Development, including the recently launched Hunterdon 579 Trail and Hunterdon Main Streets websites,” says Marc Saluk, economic development director. “We look forward to ongoing collaboration with goHunterdon to promote Hunterdon as a bicycling destination,” adds Saluk.
The launch of the website has been timed to take advantage of the fall cycling season. “Fall is a particularly beautiful time of year to enjoy Hunterdon’s scenic landscapes, quaint towns, and abundant farms and farm stands,” says Shepherd. “We’re heading into a wonderful time of year to explore all that Hunterdon County offers and that can be enjoyed while riding a bike.”

Shad’Toberfest Canceled

As you may have heard, Lambertville was devastated by flooding from Ida.
 
We decided to cancel Shad’Tober. The decision was not reached lightly. However, we could not burden the already stressed infrastructure of the City. The festival brings thousands of visitors to Lambertville and that burden would not help our City right now. The need in Lambertville is great with over half the homes in the City affected by Hurricane Ida’s unprecedented flooding. There are some people that will spend a year getting their house back to a livable condition and some who will never return to their beloved homes because of the severe damage they sustained. In light of this tragedy, we are working on a fundraiser to benefit those flood victims hit hardest by
Hurricane Ida. Stay tuned for details.
