This two hour Island Harbor Bike Tour is about getting off the beaten path & into areas where you wouldn’t typically find or see. We’ll follow the river’s edge to the Atlantic Ocean stopping at points of interest. We’ll begin at the John Paul Jones Historic House Museum. From here we will head to Prescott Park to hear about the famous Prescott sisters, the former waterfront neighborhood leading up to WWII, the Piscataqua River, and our Strawbery Banke Settlement. We’ll then proceed to Four Tree and Pierce Islands for a brief stop to hear about the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard, & the Island’s history. From here we’ll pass through the historic south end of Portsmouth & make our way to New Castle Island. In New Castle, we’ll stop at the Great Island Common to tell stories of the Isle of Shoals, seven fort installations, two lighthouses & the area during WWII. We’ll proceed to the Wentworth by the Sea to talk about a brief history of the hotel in its grand Victorian days. We’ll proceed down this lovely country road to Fort Stark for a brief stop to hear stories of our first settlement in 1623 and about General John Stark’s famous quote “Live Free or Die.” From here, we’ll take the ride back into Portsmouth with a brief stop at the African Burying Ground Memorial. The tour is about the experience, enjoyment, and taking in the sites. We’ll be riding, stopping and traveling 8-11 miles
I’ve been a cyclist my entire life, have been on bike tours around the world and want to bring you the best parts of my experience. I’m the founder of an amazing historic bike tour company in Portsmouth NH & the New Hampshire Seacoast. I love this city & want to bring you to our historic landmarks, homes and scenic areas by bike. For the last 5yrs, I’ve perfected our scripts, created easy routes so that we can bring you the best historic & scenic bike tours to create a memorable experience. We’re immersed in the community, historic preservation, Portsmouth history, volunteering with the Portsmouth Historical Society & the John Paul Jones Historic Museum. I’ve been a guide for six years, part of the historical society and consider my studies in Portsmouth history, an education in itself. Let a local show you the hard to find landmarks.
