Bike for Books FAQs

What is Bike for Books?

The Bike for Books Mountain Bike Adventure Rides is a fundraiser for the North Conway Library. Different route options for all ages & abilities offer biking enthusiasts of all levels a great opportunity to explore the varied trails and terrain along well-marked routes in & around North Conway.

 

Where will we ride?

Bike for Books showcases some of the best mountain biking trails in the Mount Washington Valley during foliage season. Almost all is off-road with trail choices including open forest service roads and flowy single-track. Virtually no pavement riding except for one connector (approx. 1/2 miles).

All trails will stay on North Conway's Eastside which was written up in the Sept. 2016 issue of NEMBA’s “SingleTracks” magazine as a great place to mountain bike!

Will there be rides of different lengths?

Yes, we offer short, intermediate and expert loops.

What about lunch?

Yes, there is such a thing as a free lunch! All participants and volunteers are invited to a free lunch with pizza from Elvio’s Pizzeria, hot soup and home-made dessert, and freshly brewed free-trade coffee provided by Frontside Grind.

 

Are there freebies/schwag?

The first 120 riders will receive a BPA-free event bike bottle.

 

What is the registration fee?

A benefit for the Library’s children’s room, the registration fee is $25 for individuals, $45 for couples, $55 for families (max. 4), and $15 for students 16 and under. Registration forms may be picked up at the North Conway Public Library or downloaded here. Online registration is available at BikeReg.com.

 

What about pledges?

Instead of paying the registration fee, you can also raise money for the North Conway Library. Of course, the money raised should be at least as much as the applicable entry fee. Top fundraisers will get prizes! The more pledges raised, the greater the chances to win! Download your pledge form here. Collect cash, checks (made out to "NCPL"), or let friends donate online here.
