Bicycle Tour de Force of Maine

Bicycling Date: Fri September 27, 2019 - Sun September 29, 2019

Buckle your helmet, clip your shoes, turn on your camera, & join us on a tour de force. This is not to rest & relax. Rather, it is to jam pack all the best that Maine has to offer in one weekend: rocky coast, lobster, lighthouses, diners, Bar Harbor, bakeries, Acadia National Park Drive, frigid water dip, & Mt Desert.

It will even coincide with Adventure Cycling Association's Bike Your Park Day. We will celebrate our public lands on Saturday with a ride through Acadia National Park.

We leave Boston Friday morning to arrive Rockland for early lunch. We start the ride at 12:00 before returning for dinner. Lodging will be in the same location for two nights near Rockland. We travel on Saturday for a tour of Park Drive & Mt Desert, dinner in Bar Harbor, & travel back to sleep. Our final day will bring us to Portland for a lighthouse studded tour, early dinner in downtown Portland, & drive back to Boston.

Distances are 50-80km daily at intermediate & advanced options, including the famous carriage gravel roads in Acadia.

Reserve your own lodging-we will recommend a group site. Pay as you go for park entrance fees, meals, & other expenses. We drive close to four hours daily-we will help with plan to share a car.

Fall Foliage Waterfall Hike with stay at Zealand Falls Hut

Forty Plus Date: Sat October 5, 2019 - Sun October 6, 2019

Join us on this fall foliage hike to view Zealand Falls, Thoreau Falls, Ripley falls, and Aresthusa Falls. We will hike to AMC's rustic Zealand Hut by Zealand Falls enjoying a family style dinner (and breakfast the following day) cooked by the hut's "croo".
If we choose, we can hike up to Zeacliff for expansive views. The next day we tour the remaining cascades hiking approximately 11 miles out.
Each cascade is uniquely different. Thoreau falls tumbles far down the far reaching Pemigewasset Wilderness. Ripley Falls flows widely over smooth rock, Aresthusa falls is 140 feet tall, second tallest falls in NH, (only surpassed by the seasonal Dryad falls of the Mahoosuc range.) Bring your lunch and we can enjoy the views!
Cost includes hut stay, dinner, breakfast. Contact Ann Hargleroad, ahargleroad@gmail.com. $150.46 member/nonmember.
