Maine Maple Sunday Ride

March 24 @ 10:00 am 5:00 pm

Join the inaugural Maine Maple Sunday Ride!

This is a loop that I’ve been doing for a few years with my buddies but I’ve decided it was time to share it with all in partnership with the Bicycle Coalition of Maine!  It includes 60-ish miles of beautiful mid-coast Maine back roads (with a few miles on route 1, 27 and 126) and stops at several sugar shacks and the famous Sheepscot General Store.  The route is 100% paved but has a bit of a spring classics feel because of the weather and general road conditions this time of year.  A road or gravel bike will be the ideal mode of transportation.  You can check out last year’s loop here:  https://www.strava.com/activities/8782628772 

Depending on your fitness level, and how many goodies you consume at the sugar shacks, the 60 mile participants should expect to be out anywhere from 3-6 hours.  There will be a short loop option as well.  Exact distance tbd, but it should be around 30 miles for anyone looking for a bit less challenge.  This loop only has one big climb, but dishes out just shy of 100′ per mile of climbing to help you build your early season base!  

All registered participants will receive a gpx file and a cue sheet (both via e-mail) for both loops.  

All proceeds go to support the Schmid Preserve in Edgecomb.
