GILFORD — Eric Lovering, owner and operator of Chainline Cycles bicycle shop in Laconia, has donated hundreds of hours of his time and labor to create a network of about four miles of new Woods Paths in the forested portions of Ramblin Vewe Farm.
Working with local mountain biker Bryan McCormick and several other bike shop customers, Lovering has fashioned these terrain-friendly additions to Ramblin' Vewe Farm's popular trail system. The Woods Paths were designed with mountain bike riding in mind, but hiking, trail running and cross-country skiing are also encouraged uses of the Woods Paths. A downloadable map of these new Woods Paths is available on Ramblin' Vewe Farm's website located at www.ramblinvewefarm.org.
Ramblin' Vewe is a working sheep farm that is now a conservation trust. It depends on the tax deductible donations from the general public to meet operating shortfalls. The Woods Paths were created to encourage another potential income stream from mountain bikers and the people on foot using these interesting new additions to Ramblin' Vewe Farm's recreation area.
