Community Bike Rides

Coming soon! Check back this page as well as on our Facebook page to find out details and when the next ride will be.

The New Brunswick Bike Exchange leads monthly community bike rides, usually leaving from the Bike Exchange at 90 Jersey Avenue. The rides are typically 15 – 20 miles in length, and are “no-drop,” meaning we ride at an easy pace that is comfortable for everyone in the group, and make regular stops to ensure the group is together. Some of our favorite places to ride include the country roads of Franklin Township in Somerset County, and the D&R Canal Path. Our rides are lead by our “Plain” Jim Brittain, a dedicated volunteer and cyclist with many years of experience leading local rides. They are a great way to discover new cycling routes and meet new people!

Note: Helmets are required on all Bike Exchange rides. We do carry helmets for sale ($10) at the Bike Exchange if you do not have one.

Bike Maintenance ClassesWorkshop Profile

The New Brunswick Bike Exchange is hosting another bicycle maintenance
series! This time, participants will learn about bicycle systems by
rehabilitating one of the Bike Exchange’s donated bikes. Participants will
also be encouraged to bring their own bikes to learn about how to do their
own repairs and maintenance.

The series will take place over six sessions, held on Tuesdays from
6:15-7:45 (with time after for cleanup), from May 10th to June 14th at our
shop located at 90 Jersey Avenue in New Brunswick. An additional session may be
added if needed. The cost for the series is $15, donated to PRAB.
Participants should wear clothes they can get dirty. You will not need
tools, although discussions of suggested tools will occur during the class.

Please register for the class by sending an e-mail to with your name, phone number, and preferred
e-mail address.

*CLASS SIZE IS LIMITED*, so register early; those who are
not pre-registered may be closed out.
