“Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance, you must keep moving.”
– Albert Einstein

Stay passionately curious, keep moving forward, and remember, “creativity is intelligence having fun.”

  • How old were you when you first learned to ride a bike? Did it come easy to you, or did you fall a lot in the process?
  • When was the last time you rode your bike?  Why not head over the Lawrence Hopewell Trail and get back into it. It’s great exercise and a fun way to see many scenic parts of Hopewell Valley!



  • The mascot of Timberlane Middle School is the Timber Wolf; and the Bull Dog is the mascot of Central High School.
  • The name “Timberlane” was selected by a local resident whose family developed the land the school sits on. It was supposed to be “Timber Lane” (two words), but there was a mix-up in the process and it was changed to Timberlane Drive.
  • The original high school was established in 1907 in what is now Hopewell Borough Hall. In 1929, a new high school was built in Pennington Borough in what is now the administrative offices for the Board of Education. The current High School was built in 1958, with many additions and renovations to the original building. Source: HV History Project.
  • Albert Einstein lived at 112 Mercer Street, in Princeton from 1935 until his death in 1955. At Einstein’s request the house has never been turned into a museum or public shrine, and today it is owned by the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton, and is used as a private residence.
  • Best known for developing the theory of relativity, Einstein is among the top most geniuses the world has recognized. Einstein never took an IQ score test. However, based on his historical records, academics have estimated his score to be around 160.
  • Riding a bike while you are young helps to establish healthy exercise habits that are likely to stay with you for life. Riding a bike not only improves physical fitness, it also benefits your learning development and mental health.
