Some Bike Paths

Delaware and Raritan Canal is a tremendous resource. Go Northeast from Princeton as far as New Brunswick. Or go Southwest to Trenton; then follow the Delaware river (on either side) North to Easton; then follow the Lehigh River West to Bethlehem for a total of 80 miles. We usually put the bikes on the car, here are some favorite parking spots:

There are many options for loops along the Delaware, one leg on the NJ side, return leg on the PA side.

Another great path in Princeton is the Lawrence-Hopewell Trail (LHT)

It is about 20 miles if you do the whole thing, plus however long it takes you to get to the trail and to return. A convenient access point leaves from the canal in Princeton (see the map on their home page).

These other trails were developed with Bob MacPherson. Here is a 12 mile loop:
