The Bicycle Coalition of Maine’s Lobster Ride follows winding, country lanes and the breathtaking rockbound coast past lighthouses, lupines and lobster boats. The ride features four distance options, from a family-friendly 15-miles to a 100-mile route that was recognized by Bicycling Magazine as one of the TOP TEN centuries in the country, as well as mountain bike rides and skills clinics.


The Maine’s Women’s Ride is a celebration of women and bicycling. The event offers a friendly, supportive atmosphere geared toward girls and women of all ages and abilities.  The routes follow quiet roads, offering beautiful views of the Maine coast and countryside.
