Seacoast Women Bike

Women Bike to Work - Bike to Work Week opens this year with a new focus on Women’s Only Events.  Sponsored by commuteSMARTseacoast and SABR (Seacoast Area Bike Riders), the series seeks to encourage and empower women to ride their bikes. All participants will receive a “Women Bike to Work” pin.  

Planning for the Women Only Events are Juliet Walker, Transportation Planner for the City of Portsmouth, Anne Rugg, Manager of commuteSMARTseacoast, and Jen Murphy, bicycling enthusiast from Lonza Biologics.

The “Bicycling Commuting: Tips and Tricks” workshop will be held on Wednesday, May 6th from 12:00-1:00pm at the United Way of the Greater Seacoast at Pease.  Paula Bedard, a bike commuter and racer of twenty years, will offer a lively 30 minute talk on tips and tricks for bicycling safely to work, how to prepare, reducing risks, understanding traffic law, navigating intersections, lane changing, plus special tips and advice for women.  Register by email at: info@commuteSMARTseacoast.org.

Four “Fix a Flat” clinics will be held at various Portsmouth locations: Pease Food Court (May 12th, 12:00-12:30); Market Square (May 15, 12:00-12:30); Pedal Power (May 16th, 10:00-10:30 am) and Papa Wheelies (May 21st, 6:00-6:30).  Registration not necessary.

Just for fun, women bicyclists can have their picture taken with their bike at photobooths during the Bike to Work Day Breakfasts at Popovers in downtown Portsmouth and Grill 28 at Pease, both on May 15th  from 7:00-9:00 am.

The New Castle Loop is Back!

The Sagamore Creek Bridge on Route 1A reopened in December, sporting a solid deck and 5' shoulder bicycle lanes. Thanks to the City of Portsmouth for a major safety improvement on a critical link in the region's bicycle route network!
