Rails to Trails Bike Rides

Northeast US Rail Trails

These are trips on many trails in the northeast US taken by two New Hampshire cylists, Kay and Dale Knapschaefer, one, Kay, now age 82 and the other Dale, age 79. We started mixing rail trails and road riding in our late 70's. These are good and moderate trips for older bike riders. These are trips were there is a lot to enjoy in addition to biking, so they are ideal places to spend a few days.
