About the Rambler:

The Maine Woods Rambler is back for its fourth year! Held in partnership with the New England Outdoor Center at Ktaadn Resorts and Katahdin Area Trails, this unique adventure ride has challenges for all levels. Choose your ride length on trails opened exclusively for this ride, and no matter what, the reward is sweeping vistas of the surrounding lakes, rivers, Baxter peaks, and an afterparty at Knife Edge Brewing. 

Proceeds from the event benefit the BCM and Katahdin Area Trails.

Route options: 

Choose from a 20, 50, or 100k adventure:

The 50k and 100k routes will punish you with challenging climbs, test your brakes on fast descents, and reward you with sweeping vistas of the surrounding lakes, rivers, and Baxter peaks. You might spot a moose if you’re lucky! Route surfaces are a mixture of smooth gravel, rough gravel, and harsh barely-ridden gravel that may require you to hike-a-bike through a section or two. You’ll also ride some of the finest paved roads in the region (about 20% of the total length on both routes) and enjoy short stints on some of the best flow trail singletrack this side of the Mississippi. The 100k route also features a water crossing where riders will be ferried across Pemadumcook Lake, and a cruise through downtown Millinocket to explore local businesses. 

While the 50k and 100k routes are most appropriate for seasoned riders, we have a 20k route for riders looking to gain experience and confidence in mixed-surface adventure riding, or those wanting something lighter for the day. This beginner friendly route combines single track, gravel, and paved roads and is suitable for mountain bikes and gravel bikes alike. We’re working on a brand new 20k route for 2024 that is still epic, but less gnarly!
