This is the fastest large group road ride in the state of Maine. This is not a beginner event (but there will be some short waiting points along the route). All are welcome to attend. The ride is 48.5 miles and covers the bigger hill climbs in Southern Maine. The race pace* (23-27mph+) is close to a Cat III race. Neutral start until Libby’s Ice Cream shop. Several sprints on this route include town line sprints, top of climb sprints and final Rt. 88 sprint. It is a very fun ride and great for training. The pack is usually 30-40 riders large.
Starts on Tuesday April 7, 2015 through the last Tuesday in August – every week leaving at 5:30pm from Cyclemania. Expect a 3-hour ride. ALL TRAFFIC LAWS OBEYED.
