The Manchester Conservation Commission’s annual bike tour, “Tour De Manch,” will be held September 9th, 2018, beginning at Eversource Energy Park in Manchester. This family-friendly bike ride offers a 30-mile or 40-mile route around the city of Manchester, NH. The event benefits the Manchester Conservation Fund which provides financial support for citywide environmental projects including education, conservation, and restoration of our natural resources.
TFMoran’s Senior Project Manager Nicholas Golon, PE is the event Chair for the Conservation Commission board. “The event continues to grow each year, both in numbers and in sights” said Nick Golon. “The tour is so much more than a bike ride, it is a great way to show riders a different side of their city they may otherwise never get to see, meet new people from their community, and help support a worthy cause in protecting Manchester’s natural resources”.
Riders will depart from Energy Park, 780 N. Commercial Street, at approximately 7:30 a.m. Sights along the route include Rock Rimmon, the Piscataquog Rail Trail, Nutts Pond Recreation Trail, Aviation Museum of New Hampshire, Lake Massabesic and the historic Weston Observatory. The tour offers t-shirts, rest stops, bike support and finishes with lunch, generously provided by the Puritan Backroom. Registration is $25 for adults, $10 for children 6-13, and free for kids under 6. The registration fee goes directly into the Manchester Conservation Fund.
Since 1989, the Manchester Conservation Commission has worked to preserve the city’s natural resources for the benefit of its citizens and wildlife. By protecting these resources, we help improve water and air quality, preserve rare species of plants and animals, provide recreational and educational opportunities, and mitigate the impacts of storms and flooding. The bike tour is our primary fundraiser.
