The Piscataway Bikeways & Pedestrian Commission reported a bikeway in the Township that encircles the ball fields making it an attractive venue for cyclists, joggers, power walkers or strollers. The path begins at the Public Works Building, Sidney Road, crosses Sidney Road and extends to the playing fields behind Piscataway High School. Ultimately, it will connect to the Kermit Serois Bikeway and link J. F. Kennedy Library, Municipal Building, Little League fields and the High School with a single integrated bikeway. In addition, the loop has an outlet to Behmer Road and can be accessed from two points on the High School campus. Al Drabnis, Chair of the Commission noted, “The loop has several curves and a dip which can help increase ones heart rate. The Commission encourages those who ride, run, or walk to utilize the new path.”
The bikeway was funded by a grant from the State Livable Communities Program.
