Rail Trail Experience

This is a great way for families and riders who enjoy getting out into the hinterlands of Portsmouth and Rye NH along the rail trail. Portsmouth has received federal funding for the acquisition of the rail trail from Rye to Portsmouth.  Now that the rail corridor has been acquired, our local communities are using the trail for off-road cycling. We will take the scenic route through the West End of Portsmouth, passing by the old historic breweries and paper mills. W will access the trail from Barberry Lane off of Islington Street and ride the trail as far as Ocean Road or about 6 miles in.

The trail is easy riding for those who will enjoy seeing the flora and fauna, but also away from vehicles.

My husband and I took this bike tour and absolutely loved it. I was a little nervous initially because I am not in great shape and was worried I wouldn't be able to keep up. Happy to report I had nothing to worry about. As long as you know how to ride a bike you are good to go. A little strenuous in spots, but very doable. Our tour guide Dawn was super friendly and very knowledgeable of the area. We saw places we would never have seen if left on our own. Beautiful scenery, water views, and lovely homes. Highly recommend and if you get a beautiful day like we had, even better! Thank you Port City Bike Tours!

Our bike tour of Portsmouth and White Castle was one of the highlights of our New England vacation! Dawn was very knowledgeable and accommodating. Being around 60, and having not ridden bikes in a couple of years, we did not find it too strenuous. We’re so glad we did it and highly recommend it!

Beth was a great guide and historian of the Portsmouth area. The route was interesting and a nice day out on the bike. Very comfortable hybrid bikes. Small zippered bag too to hold personal items. The water they provided was much appreciated. The local sites, coast, and neighborhoods were very special to see. We love this area of New Hampshire. What a nice community.
