The shoreline of New Hampshire may be short-eighteen miles of ocean from Portsmouth to Seabrook-but it's long on scenery, history, and has some of the best bicycling in the state!
With more than 28 guided rides exploring New Hampshire's Seacoast, this book is an indispensable resource for riders of all skill levels who are eager to take advantage of everything the area has to offer. So grab your copy, climb on your bike, and take in expansive views of the Atlantic Ocean and sun on sandy beaches, or visit one of the Seacoast's many historic properties and scenic byways. Head farther inland to areas that may be lesser known, but are equally beautiful for cycling-such as peaceful, rolling Kensington; quaint Barrington; or the serene environment of Newmarket's Great Bay. Choose one of the rides that skirt into Maine and visit Nubble Lighthouse, or ride south into Massachusetts along the Merrimac River. Whether you pedal through an inland village or oceanfront town, you'll find the Seacoast region offers a perfect opportunity to enjoy New Hampshire at its best.
