Riders make their way up Adamic Hill Road in Holland Township on Princeton 200k
Next up - Princeton 200k and 120k
Note: Please review important updates at the bottom of the page
September 13th we are pleased to bring you our classic Princeton 200k Brevet and Princeton 120k Populaire. Both rides start from Princeton Forrestal Village in Plainsboro, New Jersey. Riders on the 200k will enjoy a challenging and very scenic tour which passes through Princeton, Ringoes, Frenchtown, Milford, Asbury, and Flemington. There are some notable climbs along the way the most well know being Adamic Hill Road in Holland Township.
The 120k uses the same route through Princeton, Ringoes and Frenchtown. This Populaire is somewhat less challenging due to reduced distance and milder climbing.
Registration for both 200k and 120k is now open on the Active Network. Sign up here on the Registration page
As always a staff of volunteers will be present to document the riders passage and assist participants in making their way successfully around.
The first of two pre-rides of the Princeton routes took place this past Saturday. The route maps and cue-sheets on the events page have been updated accordingly. Changes in the route and controls from last years version were necessary. A summary of the changes follows:
Detour to avoid bridge closure on CR 519, Kingwood Township. Hammer Road is used from Featherbed Lane to Barbertown-Point Breeze Road which re-joins CR 519 before the turn-off on Horseshoe Bend Road. Riders will appreciate new pavement on this stretch before Route 12.
The Control in Frenchtown is now at the Frenchtown Market on Sixth Street. Volunteers will be present to validate brevet cards and offer water and snacks. The market has a deli, coffee and a bathroom.
For 200k riders there are no longer any food businesses open in Asbury. We have moved the control from the closed up Asbury Deli to the Pizza Express Restaurant on Route 57 in Stewartsville. This will be mile 70, which is 33 miles from Frenchtown. Pizza and other Italian food is available. A volunteer will be present to validate cards and offer water.
Both 200k and 120k riders leaving Frenchtown on the return will follow a changed route. Oak Grove Road will be by-passed due to fresh chip seal road surface and a bridge closure. Route 12 to Old Croton Road will be used to Flemington. We will re-join the original route just before CR 514 and Manners Road. This shortened the return for 120k riders necessitating an added loop near the end in Skillman. An information control is also added as well.
A second pre-ride will take place as a final check of the revised cue-sheets. Updates will be posted here accordingly. Safety instructions will be updated and released before the event date.
