What we're about

We're New Hampshire's most active adult recreational bicycling club. We are not hosting on-line or "virtual" rides - we pedal outside when possible! Volunteer-run, we offer our members organized weekday, weekend, and multi-day rides for road and off-road enthusiasts of all experience levels, at many venues throughout the state.

NOTE: Joining this GSW MeetUp group does not comprise a GSW membership. Some membership perks include mileage tracking and discounts at many local bike shops on parts and services.

At the beginning of each ride, each cyclist (member or guest) is asked to sign a release waiver form for insurance purposes. Helmets are required on all rides. You don't need to know how to change a flat tire, but all riders are advised to carry a spare tube for their own bike!

In order to reduce confusion and promote more participation, the GSW Board announced the following updated guidelines on August 25, 2019:

a. A new MeetUp ride may not be listed within a few hours of an existing ride already scheduled at the same location. 24+ hours lead time is recommended to allow riders to learn about the ride and make plans to attend. Changes to posted rides due to weather or cancellation can be posted any time to inform those riders planning to attend.

b. Each rider must sign their own name to the sign-up sheet. This is required for the liability release and insurance coverage.

c. Rides may only be held in public places with ample parking - not private driveways. A location must be specified.

We hope you enjoy your rides with the Granite State Wheelers!

Let's do a 30 mile (+/-) ride from Concord, NH!

The Pierce Manse

We will depart from the quiet area of North Main Street and Horseshoe Pond Lane, Concord, NH (NOT IN THE MANSE'S "PARKING AREA"), but near the junction to cycle about 30 miles averaging 14 - 15.5 mph on mixed terrain. If you plan to attend, please post a Meet Up comment before 8:00 AM the day of the ride AND call/text[masked] or[masked] so we can communicate. If you plan to attend but are running late, please text or call so we are aware of that. Will cycle up familiar North State Street/Fisherville Road, and areas of the Contoocook Valley and lovely, quiet Blackwater River Area roads. We will ride together or re-group at junctions so no one is "dropped" and shift positions in the group (leading/sweeping) so no one is pulling or being tail-end Charlie for the entire ride. Bring some grab-and-go snacks and adequate hydration.
