In conjunction with the national Rails to Trails Conservancy, NH Rail Trails Coalition, Bike-Walk Alliance of NH, and the GSW, a fun day of cycling, jogging, running, or walking along the 8.6-mile paved rail trail from Salem through Windham to downtown Derry NH is planned. Small groups are encouraged to take photos of people in scenic spots and include bikes, dogs, baby strollers, yourself, or any trail users. Photos (with captions) uploaded to the BWANH Instagram account https://www.instagram.com/bwa.nh/ will be viewed and shared to show the popularity of rail trails as the 2018 season gets underway. Photos will be judged for content, layout, and imagination by BWANH / NHRTC / GSW members with some small prizes to be awarded within one week of the event. In case of bad weather, the rain date is April 14.

Note that this activity can be held on any NH rail trail at any time of the day on April 7. Your digital photos are automatically date and time stamped – all photos must be taken on a NH rail trail on April 7 only. GSW club mileage credits allowed if two or more people bike together.
