Seacoast Tour de Forts

Sunday, October 04, 2009 @ 9:00 AM local time

Great Island Common
301 Wentworth Road (Rt. 1-B)   New Castle, NH


Great Island Common
301 Wentworth Road (Rt. 1-B)



Brief Description

Do you wish to pedal less, see more, and learn a lot about the waterfront? How about a leisurely and supported 18 mile bike ride with time to walk around inside the forts and have someone explain some interesting history of the Portsmouth Harbor area? Check-in and bike checks stars at 9:00 AM; tour leaves the Common at 10:00 AM.


From the Portsmouth NH area, take Route 1-B to New Castle Island. Great Island Common is on the waterfront, north of Wentworth by the Sea and south of Fort Constitution.

Additional Information

The route goes from New Castle Island NH to Gerrish Island ME and back. It is planned to be easy for families and casual cyclists. We will bike from fort to fort with time to walk and explore each location. Several “history buffs” will present some fascinating facts along the way. Valet bike parking service will guard your bikes while touring the forts. Water and snack items will be provided and emergency bicycle repair service will be rendered by Bicycle Bob’s Bike Shop of Portsmouth.
