“From the standpoint of a rider, it was flawless. Each piece or event seemed to happen by itself.. . . Best of all, of course, were the people. The staff, the volunteers, the riders, the community representatives; it was as interesting and as nice a group of people as you could choose to spend a week with. There were no barriers, just open people interested in trading stories and having a few laughs.”
–Richard & Grace Lehner, Chicago, IL
BikeMaine is a fully-supported, seven day cycling tour held in mid-September, the prime time to cycle in New England. The days are still warm, the nights are comfortably cool, and a hint of fall color is just beginning to appear on the trees.
Cyclists pedal an average of 55 miles per day along moderately challenging terrain on uncrowded, safe and quiet roadways, through small towns rich in local culture. Take in an impressive range of scenery, from Maine’s rocky coastline, dotted with lighthouses and lobster boats, to pristine mountains and lakes. Enjoy locally-sourced foods like Maine seafood and fresh-from-the-farm produce at every meal.
BikeMaine is an event offered by the Bicycle Coalition of Maine, a nonprofit organization with more than 5,000 members working to make Maine better through biking and walking.
