Concord Bikes is a volunteer community group that promotes bicycling as a heathy and environmentally positive means of transportation and recreation. We sponsor the annual Concord Bike Fest and advocate for safe cycling throughout the town.
We hope you will come along for the ride!
Concord Bike Fest 2020 is a week-long community cycling celebration with a variety of exciting events for riders of all abilities.
Planned activities include:
Festive Parade through Concord Center
Block Party with Concord Recreation
Bike Rodeo with Concord Police
Local Bike Tours
Free Bike Give-Away with Concord Public Works
Let us know if you want to be a part of the Bike Fest 2020 team.
Concord Bikes supports measures to promote and improve safety for bicyclists on all town roads, trails, and sidewalks (where permitted). We advocate for and make recommendations regarding policies, infrastructure improvements, trail construction, use and maintenance, and mobility improvements for persons with disabilities and mobility challenges. We have proposed the formation of a Town of Concord Bicycle Advisory Committee and are working with the Select Board and other Town committees to implement bike-friendly policies and programs and road improvements.
Join us to help make Concord a better bicycling community!
SATURDAY | MAY 18 @ 9:30AM-1PM
Before you saddle up for your ride, come on over to the Bike Rodeo for a safety check and a chance to roll around the obstacle course. Hosted by the Concord Police, the rodeo will test your cycling skills while learning the rules of the road. After you complete the course, enjoy an ice cream from Reasons to be Cheerful.
