Andover Bike Loops
Whether you are new to cycling or a dedicated rider, the Andover Bike Loops provide close to home biking opportunities designed by experienced riders. The shortcut is perfect for those new to riding on roads and is gentle and perfect for riding on a regular basis. The longer route also known as the Andover Challenge circumnavigates the Town and provides enough climbing to provide a healthy workout.
The two routes were designed to utilize quiet roads in Andover and maximize safety. Both loops are marked on the roads with crisp white “A”s in the recommended direction of travel. One loop is about 9-miles and it is referred to as the “shortcut” as it partially coincides with the longer 24-mile loop. The “shortcut” uses the same marking with a small “s” at the base of the “A”.
