2015 Recap
Although some of us are still out on our bikes during the winter months, the 2015 season has wound down for the most of us. We had a great year with many interesting rides. The rides that seemed to generate the most interest were the covered bridge rides. We plan to offer those again next year, along with many other new adventures.

In addition to our regular rides, The AMC NH Chapter Bike committee offered two challenges to our bike riders to encourage them to get out for a ride and discover the beauty of New Hampshire by bike. By meeting the challenges, the participants were rewarded with experiencing more of the Granite State by bike and receiving an AMC T-Shirt indicating that they have met a AMC NH Chapter Bike Challenge.

The two challenges were to go on bike rides that visit at least 15 of New Hampshire's covered bridges and / or to go on a series of AMC NH Chapter led-bike rides that total up to at least 100 miles. We had a number of riders that completed one or both of the challenges. They will be receiving their shirts soon, if they do not already have them.

The AMC NH Chapter Bike Committee plans to offer the Covered Bridge Ride Challenge again in 2016. We will also offer a 140 Mile Challenge to coincide with the 140 anniversary of the AMC. Watch this space for details.   New Hampshire Covered Bridges

Gene Harding: Bike Committee Founder
Finally, the committee would like to recognize Gene Harding for all the work he provided in establishing the AMC NH Chapter Biker Committee over the past few years. Gene passed away early in 2015 and everyone would like to extend their condolences to the family and friends. The committee will schedule a remembrance ride for Gene later in 2016.
