About This Event

Never been to Duke Farms? Maybe it’s just been a few years since your last visit and you want a refresher.

Join us for a bike ride to explore the property! Riding a bike is the most efficient (and arguably most enjoyable) way to enjoy all the highlights in one visit. We’ll begin our journey at the Bike Tent, then head out to complete a 5-mile circuit that will note the main points of interest, including our diverse habitats. At each landmark we’ll stop to discuss the history and ecological significance of the surroundings. The pacing will be slow to moderate, and we’ll only be riding on fairly level paved pathways.

Tickets for the class are $15 without bike rental. If you are renting a bike, it is an additional $8 for the rental, and this is paid the day of the program at the Bike Tent.

  • If you have your own bike and helmet, meet at the Bike Tent by 5:15 PM.
  • If you are renting a bike and helmet, meet at Bike Tent by 5:00 PM.

If you don’t know where the Bike Tent is located, or you need additional information, please call Kate Reilly, Manager of Education at 908-243-3626 and leave a message or email

Leave plenty of time for parking. Walking from the parking lot to the Bike Tent may take about 20 minutes. Participants should dress for the weather and bring plenty of drinking water. Helmets are mandatory for ALL riders. This program is scheduled, in part, after typical Duke Farms hours. We are unable to wait for late arrivals and will depart on time
