Spend a long weekend exploring Maine’s only national park — Acadia! Over the course of the trip, we’ll circumnavigate Mount Desert Island, visit fantastic small towns like Southwest Harbor and Bar Harbor, and have the opportunity to ride the famous carriage roads built between 1913 and 1940 with support from John D. Rockefeller Jr. Finally, we’ll get the chance to ride our bikes to the summit of Cadillac Mountain! At the eastern edge of the state and rising to 1,529 feet, the first light to reach the U.S. touches this magical spot.

Best of all, we’ll be eating at restaurants and staying indoors every night, so all you’ll need to carry on your bike are your clothes, toiletries, and a lunch for the day. It’s a great way to tour for both beginners and experienced cyclists alike. This long weekend will leave you wanting to come back for more!

Information for eBike riders:
Because every rider, eBike, road condition, and elevation profile is different, it is ultimately up to the participant to judge best whether their battery will last through each tour day. We recommend using pedal assist in its lowest setting or off when not needed to maximize battery range. Bringing a second battery is also recommended. Remember, there is no vehicle support on our inn-to-inn trips, and you would need to carry the extra battery along with all of your other things.
