We also encourage cyclists to participate in developing and expanding the biking activities of the AMC New Hampshire Chapter. If you enjoy cycling and sharing your enthusiasm with others, please consider becoming a AMC Bike Leader.

2017 Recap

Although some of us are still out on our bikes during the winter months, the 2017 season has wound down for the rest of us. We had a great year with many interesting rides. This included our annual rides along the seacoast, Merrimack Valley and Monadnock Region. We plan to offer those again next year, along with many other new adventures.

The AMC NH Chapter Bike committee offered a chance for people to learn about long distance cycle touring. The Touring Workshop was held during the spring in Nashua, providing an overview and in depth information on the ins and outs of cycle touring. This was followed up in June with a short overnight cycling trip in the Monadnock region.

The AMC NH Chapter Bike Committee plans to offer similar activities in 2018. Included will be the Covered Bridge Rides, Seacoast rides and others. Also in 2018 we will again be offering the cycle touring workshops and bike overnights. Watch for details on this website in the early spring.
