Finding the Gardens in the Garden State

Please welcome WW resident Jake Herway, who’s launching an exciting new addition to the area’s cycling tourist industry, NJ Bike Tours. He’s also helping The Farm Roll scenic bike tour, coming up Sunday, June 22, proceeds to benefit our friends at the Stony Brook-Millstone Watershed.? Here’s his story:

“Now a resident of West Windsor, I grew up riding through the picturesque landscapes of Europe, savoring the rich history, unique architecture, and European patisserie’s and cuisine. New Jersey was the last, dead last, place I expected to rival that experience. I was wrong.

NJ bike tours started when I discovered a hidden gem in the back roads of a state I assumed was nothing but?concrete, electric wires, and grime. Hidden to millions who visit, live in, or avoid New Jersey is a?rich history, beautiful farm country, stunning?views, and fresh, delicious food that create an energizing?cycling adventure. My goal with NJ bike tours is to share the beauty, fun, and discovery of a hidden Garden State, only a few pedal strokes off the beaten path.”

  1. Hi Jake! Welcome to New Jersey. Glad to see you discovered what us lifelong Jersey cyclists have known all along. While I’m partial to Jersey, Eastern PA will blow your mind too!
