Wedged on the USA and Canada border, Maine is a picturesque region packed with parks, beaches, forests and mountains, and its quiet coastal and Rockefeller-built carriage roads were almost made for cycle touring.

The national parks and forests of Maine are very popular with many active travelers for good reason. Acadia, Maine’s National Park, is where the sun first hits the United States each day, offers a world of natural beauty. The expansive view out over the Atlantic Ocean and Acadia National Park from the top of Cadillac Mountain is a more than worthy reward for any cyclist willing to take on the challenge.

The quieter Schoodic Peninsula, one of the three sections of Acadia, is a feast for the soul. Discover intricate bays and tree-lined mountains rising majestically along the coast as you cycle through this oft forgotten corner of the United States.

When it comes to dining, enjoy a sea-to-table experience when you treat yourself to seemingly endless ways to enjoy Maine lobster or enjoy a unique brew thanks to the thriving craft brewery scene right across the state.
