The sights of New Brunswick’s Ciclovia

Here’s what I saw at Ciclovia and what I discovered in Johnson Park across the river.

Today was a chance to explore a bit of New Brunswick and Johnson Park in Piscataway, as New Brunswick shut down a few miles of street to traffic and turned it over to the people in one of the year’s three Ciclovias. We — a group of five — arrived just as it began, and by the time we left after  ice cream, er lunch, kids had taken over with their bikes and trikes, found the bouncy castle and were cooling off with a temporary fountain:

I got a smattering of that spray and oh did that feel good in the day’s heat!

A colleague took us beyond Ciclovia and guess what I found:

Yes, New Brunswick wants to make one of the river crossings more bike-friendly!

What else did we discover off the bike-friendly trails in Johnson Park?

We wandered around the East Jersey Old Time Village and saw a man going around the racetrack with a horse and carriage. We glimpsed a cricket match:

and rode under the railroad bridge:

And if blogs could smell, I’d share a whiff of sun-ripened fresh strawberries at the pick-your-own place we cycled past on the way home.
