Half-week ride


BikeMaine is offering the opportunity to ride either the first 3 days or the last 3 days of BikeMaine 2014, “Pedaling the Waterways.”

Here’s the deal: register on a first come, first served basis beginning July 15th until the maximum number of registrations has been reached, or by August 10.  At registration, you can select to ride either:

  • Option 1  Westbrook to Gardiner: arriving in Westbrook before dinner on Saturday, September 6, and leaving the next morning to bike to Norway, Winthrop and Gardiner, departing before dinner on Tuesday, September 9.


  • Option 2  Gardiner to Westbrook: arriving in Gardiner before dinner on September 9, and leaving the next morning to bike to Boothbay Harbor, where we stay for two nights, Bath and Westbrook, departing after lunch on September 13.

The half-week registration is $450, which includes 9 meals, luggage transport, fully supported route, access to the BikeMaine Village, camping, hot showers, great entertainment and a commemorative t-shirt.  All BikeMaine riders are responsible for their first 3 meals when we are in Boothbay Harbor for the layover day; a lobster dinner is provided the second night in town.

A shuttle service for half-week riders from Westbrook to Gardiner, will be available on Tuesday, September 9, to take riders to Gardiner in time for dinner and to pick up riders departing BikeMaine to return them to Westbrook by 6:00 p.m. A shuttle service will also be available on Saturday, September 13, to take riders from the finish line in Westbrook to Gardiner.  The cost of the one-way shuttle for rider, luggage and bicycle is $45 per person.  You may register to leave your car in a specially designated lot in either Westbrook or Gardiner for a fee of $15.
