Hanover Adventure Tours can help you find the perfect day trip biking adventure. Whether you’re an avid biker or haven’t gotten on a bike in 10 years, Hanover Adventure Tours is the place to go for your next outdoor adventure.
They will help you pick the best route that fits the type of experience you want from exploring covered bridges, backroads, stopping at a local farm, or a special historic or tourist destination.
Hanover Adventure Tours was founded by Robert Chambers who loved biking but found it difficult to get around on a bike as he got older. He had a dream to open an adventure center for people to explore the area via e-bike so people could all get around easier.
Jayne Trailer, marketing and tour manager, spoke to me about this exciting business in our area. All photos are courtesy of Hanover Adventure Tours.

Hanover Adventure Tours specializes in the e-bike.
What is an e-bike? It’s a bike that helps you on those tough New England hills with pedal assist of a motor. Don’t worry they’re not really loud. They can go up to 20 mph and really extend the exploring experience.
They are one of the largest e-bike dealers in New England with over 15 models and 100+ bikes in stock. It’s a great way to try before you buy too. Had so much fun you want to buy the bike? No problem. They sell and service them too. Rentals include an e-bike and a helmet. You can get an e-bike for gravel/road and dirt/mountain biking.
Even hunters are finding them more appealing than ATVs and dirt bikes to get up the mountain because they’re quieter.
Give them a try the next time you’re looking for something to do. They’re located on Route 5 in Norwich and are open 9-5 daily.
