Load up your bike and join us for this relaxed ride through some of the East Coast’s most stunning landscapes and seascapes. Traveling from motel to motel, we’ll trace inland lakes and rivers; pedal past peaks clad in birch, fir, and pine trees; and skirt granite-lined harbors and bays where the essences of saltwater and tidal flats waft along on the breeze.
Beginning in Bangor, we’ll first ride to Ellsworth and then continue on to the lively seaside village of Bar Harbor. We’ll spend three overnights in and around Acadia, which, in 1919, became the first national park established east of the Mississippi. Once there, we might bask in some of North America’s first rays of a new day atop the tallest point on the North Atlantic seaboard or experience bike-cruising bliss along the park’s carriage paths.
