The trip has all ingredients for relaxing yet active weekend: several stops at state parks, scenic views at every turn, multiple stops for locally fresh food, & frequent beach stops for opportunities to dip in the water. Plan on three days of riding: Friday morning through Sunday afternoon. On one of the days we will cross into Canada: bring your passport & appropriate visa for non US citizens.

This is not to rest & relax. Rather, it is to jam pack all the best that Maine has to offer in one weekend: rocky coast, lobster, lighthouses, diners, Bar Harbor, bakeries, Acadia National Park Drive, frigid water dip, & Mt Desert. It will even coincide with Adventure Cycling Association's Bike Your Park Day (http://www.adventurecycling.org/resources/bike-your-park-day). We will celebrate our public lands on Saturday with a ride through Acadia National Park. We leave Boston Friday morning to arrive Rockland for early lunch. We start the ride at 12:00 before returning for dinner. Lodging will be in the same location for two nights near Rockland. We travel on Saturday for a tour of Park Drive & Mt Desert, dinner in Bar Harbor, & travel back to sleep. Our final day will bring us to Portland for a lighthouse studded tour, early dinner in downtown Portland, & drive back to Boston. Distances are 50–80km daily at intermediate & advanced options, including the famous carriage gravel roads in Acadia. Reserve your own lodging—we will recommend a group site. Pay as you go for park entrance fees, meals, & other expenses. We drive close to four hours daily—we will help with plan to share a car. Cost is $5 to cover club fees. Participants are responsible for their own lodging, food, & transport. Leaders will recommend lodging with group discount & coordinate group meals. Estimated trip cost is $350 for shared room, meals, & gas.
