The "Bold Coast" of Maine is a bicycle tour that we are very excited to feature as a scheduled tour for first time in Summer of 2020. 

This tour is not like any of the other cycling tours found in coastal Maine, where the only location you cycle is Bar Harbor. We actually start just our first and second days in Bar Harbor so you can get your fill of the  beautiful National Park, busy town and the great tourists spots. There will be plenty of time on both days to ride the as much of the 50 mile carriage trails as you wish, tool around town and explore the coves on bike and on foot.

Days 3-7 takes us north along what the Downeasterners refer to as "The Bold Coast" We skirt small fishing villages from Winter Harbor to Eastport, Maine and slightly over the Canadian border to the Roosevelt Campbello International Park. If you are looking for laid back riding and quaint /rustic lodging, blueberries patches, lobsters and lighthouses, look no further.  On our final day you can opt for a very short ride after breakfast, a nice hike along the rocky coast or kayak in a calm bay before we shuttle back to the airport and Bar Harbor. Call us for more details.

Each day of this tour offers a modest 40-50 miles of riding on road surfaces and some carriage trails. The terrain is rolling hills and some very short steep hills. The road surfaces are rural with chip and seal surfaces. We recommmend a road style bike with a 28cm-32cm tire. Hybrid bicycles would also be acceptable. The enviornment is either very rural or coastal. You should expect changing coastal breezes and cooler weather. Internet service and cell phone coverage will vary from day to day.

Tour Highlights: Acadia National Park, Scoonic Peninsula, Rogue Bluffs, Kelly Point, Narraguagus River, Passamaquoddy Bay, Eastport. Lubec, The Sow, Campebello, Blueberries- Lobsters -Lighthouses
