Title: Looking for a bicycle friendly city with a good job market.
Post by: passstab on July 31, 2017, 12:01:40 pm
After having a great time at the last Porcfest, I am considering moving to New Hampshire. 

I do not drive and I would like move somewhere I can get around by bicycle and public transit.
Right now I'm looking at Manchester, Concord and Nashua.
Are any of those especially bicycle friendly? 

I will need to find an entree level job, possibly in retail.


Thank you for the help
Benjamin

You might want to consider Lebanon as well. Free bus on weekdays (not weekends or evenings after 7 PM!) and lots of bike-friendly roads. There's a bike shop downtown, and there's also a rail trail that goes all the way to the Concord area. Rents are not too bad; Lebanon actually builds some housing unlike its neighbor to the north (Hanover). Finally, West Lebanon always has loads of retail jobs.
