Trust to Trail Joy Ride Fundraiser

Join us Saturday, June 29 for a ride full of joy!

$150 adult registration, free youth registration, $30 “guest” meal only registration.

The Trust to Trail Joy Ride is the PERFECT way to celebrate summer in Maine while supporting the Bicycle Coalition of Maine!

This ride is full of JOY:

  • All proceeds support the Bicycle Coalition of Maine’s education and advocacy efforts. Our educational programs are offered for free statewide and our local, state, and advocacy efforts work for all Mainers to provide access to safer (and better) walking and biking in Maine. Participation on this ride ensures our work can continue! 
  • 18 miles of supported road riding will take you through quiet Kennebunkport roads and reward you with breathtaking views of Horseshoe Cove, Granite Point, and Goose Rocks Beach. The course is marked with paint, and support vehicles are stationed along the route to assist.
  • At Timber Point you’ll enjoy a rest stop with delicious “shore-cuterie” (think: charcuterie, but at the beach!) and more incredible views. There you’ll have the option to explore the 1.4 mile trail that is part of the Rachel Carson Preserve.
  • A finish line celebration with a catered box lunch from Mornings in Paris café and live music from the fabulous Ideal Maine Band!
  • Post ride celebration with others who care about making Maine better and safe for biking and walking! We’ll have lunch, drinks, games, trail walks, and more at the beautiful Kennebunkport Conservation Trust.  
  • Want to support a rider and/ or join the festivities without riding? Not a problem! We have a meal ticket only option for you in registration.

Cancellation/Transfer Policy: 

This ride is a fundraiser for the Coalition. Even if you are unable to make it, we hope that you will understand that the registration fees enable us to continue to do our education and advocacy work, and for this reason, registration is non-refundable. If you are unable to make it, you have two options:

  1. You may transfer your registration to someone else for a $25 transfer fee until June 22 at 9:00 a.m. Please email us at ride@bikemaine.org with the transferee’s full name, and email, and they will be sent a form to complete. The transferee must complete the form before registration closes at 9 a.m. on June 22. 
  2. If you need to cancel your registration and do not wish to transfer it, please email ride@bikemaine.org before June 22 at 9:00 a.m.  This enables us to keep an accurate count of lunches and not waste food. 

If the ride is canceled by the BCM because of extreme weather, state or local declared emergencies, or any other safety-related reasons no refunds will be given.
