Via any of six connecting bridges you can create loops between the Delware & Raritan Canal trail and the 60 mile trail at Delaware Canal State Park on the Pennsylvania side of the Delaware River (though the Pennsylvania side may not be as scenic or well-maintained as the NJ side (NJ Monthly). Delaware Canal State Park is part of the 165 mile Delaware & Lehigh Heritage Corridor. You can download this tour guide for cyclists on the D&R Canal.
Big Bear Gear is located at Fireman’s Eddy on the Delware & Raritan Canal feeder canal along the Delaware River, just 1.5 miles south of Lambertville and adjacent to the Golden Nugget Flea Market.
