BikeMaine Ride Update: Bag Limit

April 24, 2013 No Comments

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.

Please note that in the event of rainy weather, your luggage may sit uncovered outdoors for some period of time (while we will endeavor to keep it under cover if it rains, we cannot guarantee it).   We highly recommend that you use waterproof luggage or bring heavy duty trash bags to wrap your luggage when rain is in the forecast.
