Katie McQuaid's Scene in Manchester: Cyclists work to ride safely on city streets
“Bike Manchester wants more people riding bicycles in Manchester, New Hampshire, more often,” states the website.
To that end, the group advocates for rider safety and convenience. They want to see fewer potholes and more bike racks.
Last week I wrote about seeing Sarah Silverman perform in Manchester years ago for a fundraiser. Thank you to John Campanello of Between Gigs Casting for pointing out the fundraiser was for New Thalian Players, not the Majestic Theatre, as I had remembered.
Sometimes the only thing that will get me through a workout is knowing that a good meal is on the other end. That is why LaBelle Winery’s new Yoga in the Vineyard series is such a brilliant idea.
Following the class, students will receive a 10 percent discount on lunch at the winery’s bistro. Sounds like a perfect Sunday afternoon to me.
LaBelle has a whole calendar of interesting events lined up for the summer, including cooking demonstrations, art talks, live music and an authors series.

When I was a student at Manchester High School Central, there was a framed Archie comic strip signed by Bob Montana in the main office. I had always been told the creator of Archie, Jughead and the gang had been a student at my high school, but didn’t know much else about his ties to Manchester.
