Are you ready to bicycle The Pine Tree State in 5 days? The first day, we’ll pedal from iconic Bar Harbor through Acadia National Park, and along the state’s rocky coast, dotted with quaint harbor towns, lighthouses, and wild blueberry patches. Heading south, we’ll explore quiet roads to the first of our many summer camp and retreat centers — all of which offer cabins to sleep in or camping.
The next few days are spent pedaling along Maine’s scenic Mid-Coast region with amazing riding and terrific stops along the way. We’ll stay two nights at a wonderful summer camp right next to a lake before continuing to head south along the coast. On the last day we pedal through classic Maine as we pass through the towns of Kennebunk, Wells, Ogunquit, and York, on our way to Portsmouth, New Hampshire – a very quaint city on Maine’s southern border, and a bustling port town. There, we’ll celebrate the end of the ride before an optional shuttle back to downtown Boston.
This is more than a bike trip – it’s an inspiring journey with like-minded people who are united by their passion for sustainability and adventure. Participants may select their beneficiaries from our list of more than 100 extraordinary non-profit organizations.
