We listened to your comments about the one-bag luggage restriction and have made a change! Riders may now bring up to two bags, as long as the total weight of the luggage being transported by BikeMaine does not exceed 60 pounds per rider. As several riders noted, this will allow the packing of tent, ground cloth and sleeping bag in one duffel bag and clothing and other items in a separate bag.

We highly recommend that you use waterproof luggage or bring heavy duty trash bags to wrap your luggage when rain is in the forecast.
