By popular demand…

The following item is a Safe Bicycling Pamphlet, originally published by the New Hampshire Highway Safety Agency, it gives a general overview of safe bicycling practices. If you would like a hard copy we would encourage you to stop in at the Hanover Town Offices; copies should be available soon.

First, we are very happy to announce that the Town of Hanover has been included among The League of American Bicyclists Bicycling Friendly Communities “Honorable Mention” roll. During the process of applying for recognition as a Bicycling Friendly Community our committee learned a great deal about what we have done and what we need to continue to do, and what improve, in order to encourage cycling in our community and to build up our status and some day win Silver or Gold level. By being added to this list we join other large and small communities around the nation who are striving to make their streets safe and fun places to travel whether afoot, on two wheels or four.


To that end we are hosting an open-house on Wednesday May 22 from 5 to 7 pm at the Howe Library’s Mayer room. This open house will be our opportunity to reach out to our fellow citizens in Hanover. We want to share our ideas for how we can improve cycling and pedestrian facilities and just as important; we want to hear your ideas! We hope to see you then.

Master Plan Document

At the November 5th meeting of the Town of Hanover Board of Selectmen we took an opportunity to express our gratitude to the Board for approving and completing the updates to the North Park Street commuter corridor and to present our official “Master Plan for Bicycle and Pedestrian Infrastructure in Hanover“. This Master Plan was received by the the Town Manager and the Board of Selectmen as a guiding document and we are very pleased to share it with you!

This document represents much diligent work, discussion and collaboration between the Hanover Bicycle and Pedestrian Committee and the Town of Hanover Bicycle and Pedestrian Consultant, Carolyn Radisch of Owens, Radisch and White. And we would also like to thank her for the dedicated work she provided our community.

Dartmouth Transporation Plan

Dartmouth has a 2001 Master Plan Transportion and Parking Report on their web site.  Detailed discussion of pedestrian and motor vehicle issues, but almost no mention of bicyles, even in the extensive discussion of transportation demand management.
