Rider Comments:

  • "Tree covered scenic road following the Delaware on your right. Over small one lane bridges. Go over the Frenchtown bridge, catch lunch at the restaurant on the river and head back to 32 and continue on. Stop at Titicum Park, see frisbee golf and maybe a polo match next field. A great ride!!!" - Rider from Marlboro, NJ (8/28/08)
  • "From Kintnersville through the scenery to New Hope. There are some tight sections, but the ride is mostly scenic. Pass through Washington's Crossing park and continue to Morrisville" - Rider from Philadelphia, PA (8/18/08)
  • "Please advise your web readers that this road is slatted to close in major sections this fall thru early spring (07-08) for reconstruction. Mostly from Point Pleasant north to Kintnersville. This will affect the die hard, all year, riders the most. You can expect detours, but some of those roads will be enjoyable too. Hopefully by next spring it will be open without detours north & southbound." - Anonymous (11/4/07)
  • "Entire route is along the Delaware River. Very scenic, nice road, some nice turns. Through villages, small restaurants, fruit stands, and a few turn outs. Easy, beautiful ride. Well worth the effort." - Rider from Hatfield, Pennsylvania (10/16/07)
  • "Just did the ride from Washington Crossing to Upper Black Eddie (7/21/07) and the road is still closed north of Indian Rock Inn. If you do a search on covered bridges of Buck County you can find a self guided tour not far from River Road, or download POI into your GPS of covered bridges. Mostly small back roads, the local Harley dealer does a covered bridge poker run a few times a year." - Rider from Washington Crossing, Pennsylvania (7/23/07)
  • "PA Route 32, along the Delaware River between New Hope and Kintnersville (where 32 meets 611), also called River Road, is a well-known ride. The scenery is good, the road has some nice twists and turns on occasion, as well as a couple of surprise 90 degree turns (to get from one side of the canal along the Delaware to the other). That's the good news. The bad news is the route is complete only when going south. Northbound, there's a detour around a part of the road that was damaged in flooding in '05 and hasn't been repaired yet (and doesn't look as though it will be soon). Flooding in '06 has also added additional detours in both directions although these may well be cleared up soon or be cleared since I rode this route. At any rate, bring a map of the area or use a GPS to find a way back to River Road rather than following posted detours that go way out of the desired way. The road surface varies from "tired" to freshly paved; rock falls from the cliffs on the west side of the road can add interest to the ride as can gravel from runoff, and moisture deposited overnight (because the road is often only 20-30 yards from the river and sometimes closed). Still, River Road between New Hope and Kintnersville (or Easton) is an oldie but goodie." - Richard Emerson (8/8/06)
