Ride into the White Mountain Bicycle Week and Explore on Two Wheels this Memorial Day weekend. New Hampshire is now home to not one but two awesome bike weeks to enjoy. Starting May 27th, the small mountain towns of Lincoln, Woodstock, and Franconia Notch are coming together to celebrate everything bicycle-related in the Western White Mountains while supporting regional non-profits. Whether you prefer the road or the trail, there is something for all cyclists during White Mountain Bicycle Week.
White Mountain Bicycle Week runs from Saturday, May 27th through Saturday, June 3rd. Each day features a special “Featured Ride” or bicycle-related event that will give you a chance to try many of the various biking trails and routes throughout the Western White Mountains. Many of the rides are led by local business owners and cycling enthusiasts. Downhill mountain biking will also be available at Loon Mountain at their state-of-the-art downhill mountain biking course. And stay tuned for over four miles of new terrain opening up later this summer!
Throughout the week, many activities support local non-profit organizations like The Bridge Project and Lincoln Woodstock Friends of Recreation. The Bridge Project supports those who are vulnerable in the Lincoln-Woodstock communities by connecting them with individual and group support networks. Lincoln Woodstock Friends of Recreation promotes community involvement and support for the broadening of services and activities for all ages in the community.
Bike Week also supports the environment and encourages people to try commuting by bicycle to either work or school throughout the week. For those that live a little too far away from work (or over the mountains!), you can park at one of the local participating “safe parking lot” locations and ride your bike from there.
The White Mountain Bicycle Week is an inclusive event and children and adults who might not be able to ride a traditional two-wheeled bicycle can enjoy a bike ride using adaptive equipment with New England Disabled Sports. Check out their cycling schedule here.
As the White Mountain Bicycle Week gets closer, more information on the featured rides and other events will become available. May is a beautiful time to visit the Western White Mountains and exploring the region on two wheels is a great opportunity to get closer to natural beauty while getting a little exercise!
