Cycle the Seacoast, which is scheduled for May 4, promotes and helps raise money for the American Lung Association.
Promotions are also set at the following locations: Milly's Tavern in Manchester on Jan. 30, Redhook Brewery in Portsmouth on Feb. 20, Martha's Exchange in Nashua on Feb. 27 and Thirsty Moose Taphouse in Portsmouth on March 5.
"It will also be a great opportunity for people to meet other cyclists, volunteers, and business partners of Cycle the Seacoast and the American Lung Association," according to Sean MacWilliam, who's organizing the cycling event.
"This is a fun, at-your-own-pace ride with fully-supported route options of 25, 50 and 100 miles with rest stops along the way. Many businesses and family and friends groups choose to form teams, which adds to the camaraderie and fun," MacWilliam said in the e-mail.
Registration — which is non-refundable and non-transferable — is $35. It does not count toward the fundraising minimum, which is $250 for adults and $125 for ages 7-17.
