Have you ever wondered what to do when planning a trip to New Hampshire? The town or North Conway is a charming little town with loads of shops, restaurants, scenic train rides and with Mount Washington just 15 miles away, having fun is going to be inevitable. Attitash Mountain just minute away from North Conway offers a variety of adventure activities, one of which is some of the best Downhill mountain bike trails one could ask for. Imagine for one moment, a ski resort with endless possibilities, loamy soft dirt that never goes away and elevation that is sure to keep you happy. Well thats what we had this weekend. A real downhill track with lots of challenges that pushed all level of athletes.
