After a relaxing rest day, riders geared up for the trek to Camp Jordan, where they would spend the last night of BikeMaine.
Once again, weather was not on our side, but that never deterred this hearty group of riders. As they continued through Trenton and Ellsworth, riders eventually came to the lunch stop at the Cave Hill Elementary School in Eastbrook, Maine. Here, the Bicycle Coalition of Maine organized a Bike Rodeo where children learned bike safety and handling and the older students went on a ride with a few BikeMaine participants. The school also served some tired and wet riders a tasty lunch. Riders from around the country brought post cards from their hometowns, that children then stuck on a map of the United States.Read More

The route was a more or less straight shot heading south from Maine’s inland pines to the rocky coast, the first site of the ocean for BikeMaine riders.Read More
