Our first Concord Project – 2.5 miles between Fisherville Rd and Carter Hill Rd.

Help build the Concord-Lake Sunapee Rail Trail this Saturday the 28th of September 2019. We will be cutting brush and branches in preparation for grading work that will follow. Its fun to be a part of the transformation of this land into rail trail. We are gathering in the field just south of 33 Fisherville Rd, Concord, NH 03301. Use LAD Welding as a landmark. Park in the field. We will have a crew ready to point you in the right direction starting at 8:30 AM. Arrive when you can and stay only as long as you like. Bring gloves and the brush cutting tool(s) of your choice: Loppers, limbing saw, chain saw, pole saw. We will be providing pizza for the crew for lunch. Have questions? Send email to info@clsrt.org

Adjust your bike on the trail with CLSRT’s new bike fixit stations

Bike repair stations are springing up along the Concord-Lake Sunapee Rail Trail. CLSRT nearly doubled the number of repair stations in the state of NH by aquiring 5 of the self-contained fixit stands. Each solid bike stand has a variety of built in tools and QR code stamp to access instructions on fixing the most common issues with bicycles.

Today we installed 4 stands along the trail. One in Bradford by the Appleseed Restaurant and Catering,one at Schoodacs and another at Bagley Field in Warner. The fourth fix station is at the Contoocook Riverway Association in Contoocook.

Thank you to our sponsors: Central New Hampshire Bicycling CoalitionWarner Fall Foliage FestivalKearsarge Area Chamber of CommerceHopkinton Rotary, Lake Sunapee Snowmobile Club, Rural Heritage Connection of Bradford, Inc. And Northeast Delta Dental, who is helping sponsor a location in Concord that will be installed later this summer.
