In its third year, this ride is a partnership with NEOC and KAT and is most appropriate for seasoned riders. The routes (50 km or 100 km) 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 100-km route also features a water crossing where riders will be ferried across Pemadumcook Lake, and a cruise through downtown Millinocket to explore local businesses.
