Your vision for our beautiful state may include making it an even better place for scenic runs and bicycle trips, or working off some extra pounds by bicycling to work, or walking down Main Street to do a little shopping before ducking into your favorite hangout for a cup of coffee. You might feel strongly about safer conditions for people who don’t drive. Maybe you’re motivated by wanting to help people be more active and healthy. Bike-Walk shares your vision and is working on policy and funding changes to make it possible. Look below for ways you can bring your vision closer.
We know you try to do your shopping locally, but sometimes you may need to order online. If you shop at Amazon, you can set Bike-Walk as your designated charity in the Smile program and give a little bit with every purchase. You just log in to smile.amazon.com and set your charity to “Bike-Walk Alliance of New Hampshire”. More info here.
