Have you noticed? Bike Boulevards have popped up all around Princeton. These are low-traffic roadways suitable for cyclists. Check out the following map of identified boulevards:
Together, these boulevards help establish a connected network around town and to popular destinations.

With a few nice weather days upon us, now’s the perfect time to try out these routes.
These Bike Boulevards also allow for other cycling loops, like from the 16-mile Fitness Loop around the perimeter or the 4.5-mile Town & Gown Loop near the town center. Zoom into the following map to explore these loops:
When driving a car, remain especially alert on Bicycle Boulevards, maintaining a safe speed and providing cyclists with plenty of space.
