New Hampshire Loves Bicycle Tourists!

Boyd Cabanaw, of Owasso, Oklahoma, visited New Hampshire by bicycle to see the 2019 Fall foliage. Boyd commented ”The trip from Methuen, Massachusetts to Manchester was great… The trip from Manchester to Sanford, Maine went equally smoothly… I felt quite safe on all the roads… Overall it was a great trip!”

USDOT/FHWA recognizes that the economic impact of bicycling and walking includes avoided societal costs related to a mode shift from automobile travel to bicycling and walking (e.g., reduction of greenhouse gas and other emissions, traffic enforcement, noise impacts, and safety). See FHWA's "Evaluating the Economic Benefits of Nonmotorized Transportation."
