Connecticut River Bikeway Routes Map Released


Are you looking for suggestions on bike rides in the Tri-State region this summer? The recently-released map of bikeway routes along the Connecticut River Scenic Byway can help you out. The map covers parts of three states and shows bike routes from Putney, VT and Walpole, NH in the north to Easthampton and South Hadley, MA in the south.

The map was prepared by the Franklin Regional Council of Governments in Greenfield, MA in cooperation with the Massachusetts Department of Transportation and the U.S. Department of Transportation. The Windham Regional Commission (WRC) in Brattleboro contributed data for the Vermont portion of the map, which shows easier, intermediate, and advanced bike routes, off-road bike trails, bike shops, picnic areas, ice cream stops, and more.

Copies of the map are free. In Vermont maps are available in Brattleboro at the Brattleboro Area Chamber of Commerce, Burrows Specialized Sports, and Brattleboro Bike Shop, in Guilford at the Vermont Welcome Center on I-91, and in Putney at the West Hill Shop. If you are a business and would like a few copies to make available for your customers, contact the WRC (jnugent@windhamregional.org).

If you’re looking for more detailed information on biking in eastern Windham County, WRC’s Bicycle Suitability Maps are still a great choice. These maps can be downloaded at www.windhamregional.org/bikemap, or from the sources listed above. A small fee may be charged.

Jeff Nugent, Windham Regional Commission
