White Mountain Bicycle Week
June 21 - June 27
BIKE FOR THE BETTER
JUNE 21-27, 2021
Scenic paved paths, cross-country routes, road rides, and dirt berms, the White Mountains of New Hampshire are home to an array of bike adventures. During White Mountain Bicycle Week – the other New Hampshire bike week – the communities of Lincoln, Woodstock and Franconia Notch celebrate the pleasures of pedaling in the great outdoors, while supporting regional non-profits.
A series of activations and daily featured rides will highlight the diverse biking opportunities in the area and encourage all to get outside and ride. Avid cyclists, young families, downhill riders and more will find opportunities to get pedaling at their own pace.
White Mountain Bicycle Week is built on the principle to bike for the better. Many activations will benefit non-profit organizations that support the nearby community like The Bridge Project, Lin-Wood Skate Park and Lincoln Woodstock Friends of Recreation. By simply getting outside, participants will be making a difference in the community.
June 21–27 | Bike For The Better
Biking has many benefits both for the rider and the environment. Throughout the week, people are encouraged to take a test ride at integrating biking into everyday life.
- Commuting to work via bike: For commuters with too far to ride, bike racks will be placed at parking lots to shorten up their ride times.
- Ride for 30 minutes a day: Daily exercise improves your overall health. During these longer days of summer, commit to riding 30 minutes a day.
