What We Do.
More People on Bikes More Often.
We have a simple goal, to grow the biking culture in Central NH. This is possible through advocacy, education, and strong communities.
We provide classes for people of all ages and abilities, giving them the skills and confidence to ride a bicycle. We provide classes for motor vehicle drivers on safe driving skills and tactics to safely share the road with bicyclists.
We work with local law enforcement and city advisory committees to ensure safe roads for all road users.
We advocate for the creation of safe and convenient places to ride and park a bicycle.
We create a presence that welcomes and celebrates bicycling, from bicycle valets to promotional events throughout the year.
Evaluation and Planning
We work with the Central New Hampshire Regional Planning Commission to do bicycle counts and to provide other data to evaluate and plan for bicycling as a safe and viable transportation option.
Central New Hampshire Bicycle Coalition is a program of the Bike-Walk Alliance of NH. BWANH provides CNHBC with accounting services and our financial activities are reported on their tax return. This arrangement saves CNHBC time and money so we can concentrate our efforts on improving bicycling in central NH. BWANH provides these same services for several other regional bicycle-related initiatives including Bike Manchester, Friends of the Salem Bike-Ped Corridor, New Hampshire Rail Trail Coalition, and Laconia Area Bicycle Exchange.
