Bicycling Magazine, with readership over 2 million, chose the Bicycle Coalition of Maine’s Lobster Ride and Roll as one of America’s Top Century Rides. Held in Rockland on July 21, Bicycling’s reasons for identifying the Lobster ride as one of the most “engaging” century rides included the Maine scenery, the rides’ festivities and the celebratory lobster roll feast at the end of the ride.
This year marks the 11th anniversary of the event. In addition to the 100-mile ride, the event includes 16, 30 and 50-mile options along some of Maine’s most idyllic back roads.
Registration for the event is now open. Registrants receive the famous Lobster Ride bike socks and admission to local museums free with registration. The ride also features full race support and rest stops, delicious alternatives to a lobster roll if preferred and showers for after the ride.
