George Washington features prominently at Princeton Ciclovia 2017, on May 21.

Preceding the Ciclovia, Chasing George is a 10-mile bike ride hosted by the Historical Society of Princeton. The ride goes along the D&R Canal State Park path, in the spirit of the route Washington took the morning of January 3, 1777 to fight in what became the Battle of Princeton. It starts at 12:30 at the Douglass House at Mill Hill Park in Trenton. For details and free registration go to the Chasing George Eventbrite page. Come ride and learn!

The Chasing George ride joins the Ciclovia at 1.30 at Quaker Road

The Ciclovia itself is at 1-4pm on Quaker Road, between the Quaker Meeting and Mercer Mall. The road will be closed to cars. Feet and wheels of all kinds (except car wheels) are welcome. Parking is available at the Quaker Meeting or at Mercer Mall. The Ciclovia is a free event.

Special activities at the Historical Society's Updike Farmstead include sitting in a Durham boat from Washington Crossing Historic Park, meeting Revolutionary War re-enactors, and viewing historical talks and displays by area history organizations.
