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, the community is encouraged to meet at Portsmouth City Hall on Wednesday, May 9th at 8 a.m. to join City staff and elected officials for a bicycle tour around the Downtown. The route will showcase the locations of the City’s Zagster bike share stations, and citizens are welcome to participate on one of Portsmouth’s bike share bicycles or their own bicycles. This will be a good opportunity to understand the bike share program and gain access to special promotions and more. To learn more about Portsmouth’s bike share program, download the Zagster App or visit www.zagster.com/portsmouthnh, and stay tuned for more details on this event!
CommuteSMARTseacoast will again be challenging all employers located in Seacoast NH to compete for the honor of having the smartest, greenest commuting workforce. This competition is all about getting more people to use sustainable transportation like biking, riding the bus, carpooling, vanpooling, walking or telecommuting.
