We are working on a number of initiatives to support the City's effort to become more bikable and walkable. Check back here for updates on implementation of the Bicycle Pedestrian Plan, progress on Bicycling and Walking Friendly Communities designations, Safe Routes to School projects and programs, and other projects to improve our City's bicycle and pedestrian networks.
May is National Bike Month
Portsmouth is currently a Bronze Level Bike Friendly Community according to The League of American Cyclists. For the past decade, Portsmouth has implemented a number of policies and in-depth plans to grow the City’s biking initiatives and infrastructure; click here for background.
To celebrate Bike Month this year, City staff and elected officials led a bicycle tour around the Downtown with community members. The route showcased the locations of the City’s Zagster bike share stations, and ended at Portwalk Place to celebrate their sponsorship of a new bike station at that location. To learn more about Portsmouth’s bike share program and all our station locations, download the Zagster App and visit www.zagster.com/portsmouthnh.
