Would Def Ride Again!
Alison_S, May 2024
It was such a great experience, from the guide(s) Dawn and Tammy, learning about the history of Portsmouth and surrounding communities we could have spent all day with them. Tammy in particular because she was our actual "ride guide". It was not over strenuous for a 70 and 60 year old who have not been on a bike in 40+ years! If we ever felt "whipped" Tammy was great and planned a few minute rest stop with additional area information. The day was sunny, cool (50's) and a Friday morning (not much traffic for the few roads we did have to travel on). Only thing I might add would be if there was a tour "option" for our guide to take & join us for lunch at a local restaurant - because more info with local flavor would be a stp above!
10/10 recommend

My friend and I ended up needing something to do in Portsmouth. We luckily stumbled upon a bike tour and had the best time! Our guide, Tammy, was AMAZING! So knowledgeable and fun! I definitely want to take another tour when I’m back in town. This as an absolute must do!

Hi Robin Thank you for joining a bike tour and we’re delighted that you enjoyed your time with Tammy! Thanks again for supporting a small local business.

The entire bike ride was comfortably paced and not rushed, including stopping to get water and a bathroom break. It was scenic from start to finish and very relaxing. Marcus was laid back and passionate regarding the area and history of Portsmouth and New Castle, New Hampshire. Looking over the Piscataqua River to Maine was cool. I will be back for another tour and found a beautiful, scenic park off the beaten path to spend the day at picnicking and watching the boats sail by. Rich in history and beauty!

A fun adventure filled with history, moderate exercise, and lovely views. We had time to enjoy a break at each stop while we learned about each location. Our guide had a pleasant personality and kept a good pace for everyone in our group.
Awesome bike trip!
