White Mountains Biking

In Bethlehem you’ll find mountain biking, road and gravel biking plus fat tire biking in the winter. Biking in the highest town in New England in the northern White Mountains brings exhilaration and excitement at every bend!

From beginner to advanced trails, you’ll find a variety of options and we continue to expand each year.

Biking has become an increasingly popular activity for both the adventure seekers and leisure riders alike. Bethlehem is truly at the center of great biking in northern New Hampshire and more trails are easily accessible in neighboring towns – it’s no wonder that we were certified by the League of American Bicyclists as a Bike Friendly Community.

Did you know Bethlehem has a free Gear Library accessible to both locals and visitors? The Gear Library, operated by the Bethlehem Trails Association is located at Rek-Lis Brewing, 2085 Main Street and is stocked with bikes and accessories for both adults and children. Donations are suggested. Please visit their website for details.
