West Windsor Historic Bike Trail

Paul Ligeti of Troop 66, sponsored by Dutch Neck Presbyterian Church, is creating a bike route for his Eagle Scout project. The trail will pass by many of West Windsor’s historic sites, which are described on his project website. Please support Paul’s effort!

Please remember that when riding on the roadway, a bicyclist has all the rights and responsibilities of a motorist, including following traffic signals and stop signs, etc. Do not ride against traffic! Besides being the law, following the rules of the road has been shown to be safest for everyone, since motorists and bicyclists behave in a common predictable way. Enjoy your ride!

    This is Paul Ligeti,

    First, I’d like to thank you for your input – I thought that you should ride against traffic based on my previous knowledge, but it turns out that that was incorrect; sorry for any confusion. I just edited the site to include the correct traffic information. As my dad said, the site is not finished yet -the actual route still needs to be finished and uploaded along with a number of other things- but hopefully I should be able to finish the website within the next two weeks.

    Thanks again!
    Paul Ligeti

    This is Paul Ligeti’s dad. His website is still under construction and thus subject to revision in terms of content, grammar, etc. Although we very much appreciate the link from the alliance, he did not realize it was going to be established so soon. Nonetheless, he’ll revise the safety language ASAP. In general, he hopes to finish the website in about two weeks.

    You’re right and we did try telling him. Unfortunately, he didn’t respond or change the site. So we made sure to repeat the real rules of the road when we wrote about his route.

    It might be a good idea to start with educating this eagle scout on good cycling practise. On his website, when he describes the route, he specifically advises cyclists to go against the traffic “so you can see the cars coming”.
