The 2014 Maine Lobster Ride will take place on Sunday, July 20th. We’re looking forward to seeing you all next year!
Thanks to everyone who came out and made the 2013 Lobster Ride a huge success! We had amazing weather, generous sponsors, hard working volunteers and enthusiastic riders who all made for a perfect day of riding. For pictures of the 2013 event, check out our Facebook photo gallery here.
The Bicycle Coalition of Maine’s Lobster Ride & Roll follows winding, country lanes and the breathtaking rockbound coast past lighthouses, lupines and lobster boats. The ride features five distance options, from a family-friendly 15 miles to a century that was recognized by Bicycling Magazine as one of the TOP TEN centuries in the country. As a bonus, every first-time rider who is not a member of the Coalition will receive a FREE six-month trial membership!
Lobster Ride routes will be published in Spring 2014.
After the ride, participants will enjoy a fresh Maine lobster roll lunch, with vegetarian and tuna options available. Maine’s own world-famous Lobster Queen and Lobster Bike will be there, too!
Here’s what participants had to say
about the ride:
“Gorgeous routes and terrific support!”
-Sara Huston, Topsham
“…The most beautiful ride in the state.”
-Suelle Large, Portland
“Thanks to all who helped make this the
best century I have ever experienced!
Everyone was friendly and helpful!
It was well worth the expense to fly
from Chicago to be a part of this ride
in such a beautiful area!”
-Tom Gallagher, Roselle, Illinois
“We all had a really fun ride and the kids were super proud of themselves for their accomplishment… Your group does great work, and this Rockland event is always an embodiment of the organization’s spirit.”
- Craig Davis, Peaks Island, Maine
“We really enjoyed the ride with all the beautiful views along the way. The pre-ride safety briefing, police escort, rest stops and support vehicles all added to our enjoyment. When we arrived back at the high school, the welcome that we got made us feel like we really had accomplished something.”
- Leslie and Michael Bardelli, New Milford, Connecticut
