2014 Manchester Bike Tour

To raise money for environmental projects and land conservation across the city, the Manchester Conservation Commission will host the Manchester Bike Tour, a 30-mile family friendly ride around the city on Sunday, Oct. 12.

The tour begins at PSNH Energy Park and loops around the city. Sights along the route include Rock Rimmon, the Piscataquog Rail Trail, Nutts Pond Recreation Trail, Aviation Museum at the Airport, Lake Massabesic and the Historic Weston Observatory.

A $25 registration fee will sign riders up to ride the tour. Children 6-13 years of age are $10. Children under 6 years old are free. The tour offers T-shirts, rest stops, bike support, and a lunch at the end of the ride. The registration fee will go directly into the Manchester Conservation Fund. This event is endorsed by the Mayor’s office and the Board of Aldermen.

In addition to riders, the event needs volunteers are sought to assist with the event: two from 6:30 to 8:30am to assist with registration and general setup; two from 11am to 1pm to help with clean up; and eight from 7:30 to 11am to staff the four rest stops.
