About this Event

DAY 1

  • Manchester, NH – Stowe, VT
  • 150.0 mi / 240.0 km

“Live Free Or Die” is the feisty motto of tiny New Hampshire. New Hampshire provides a hearty sampling of the topographic spectrum from its start at New England’s highest rolling farmland of the Connecticut River Valley.

From Manchester you take Route 101 west towards Keene and then follow Route 9 to Wilmington, a picturesque village. You have entered the state of Vermont, the quintessential New England!

In Wilmington you pick up Route 100 and ride north to Plymouth Union, then get on 100A to Woodstock, which remains an exceedingly well-preserved example of small-town New England.

From Woodstock follow Rte 4 until you hit SR 100 north and you are on your way to Stowe, a world-famous historic village, nestled beside Vermont’s highest peak, majestic Mt. Mansfield.

DAY 2

  • Stowe, VT – North Conway, NH
  • 120.0 mi / 192.0

From Stowe you take SR 100 up to Morrisville, where you enter SR 15 east towards St. Johnsbury, the industrial, retail and cultural center of the area of Vermont.

Continue on Route 302 to Littleton, which is the largest town on the western end of Route 302 – this is a place that seems to be locked in the 1950’s.

You continue south to Lincoln and will ride the famous Kancamagus Highway (Hwy 112) – this is one of the most incredible rides in the White Mountains. Enjoy a most excellent ride, which will take you over the crest of the peaks, giving grand vistas over an almost completely undeveloped landscape.

You can enjoy fantastic views of the White Mountains with Mount Washington, the star attraction of the White Mountains Presidential Range. At 6,288 feet this is the highest point in the northeast – called “Agiocochook” by Native American Indians and believed to be the home of the Great Spirit.

Today’s destination is North Conway, home to New Hampshire’s most scenic railroad, and the commercial center of the Mount Washington Valley recreation area.

Day 3

  • North Conway, NH – Greenville, ME
  • 190.0 mi / 304.0 km

Leave North Conway on Route 16 north towards Gorham, the gateway to the Great North Woods. Here, you pick up US 2 and after a few miles you are in Maine, the state famous for lobstering, picturesque coastal cities and beautiful lighthouses.

Follow US 2 all the way up to Skowhegan – the Abenaki Indians called this island in the Kennebec River “a place to watch” as they looked for salmon in the depths below the falls.

Continue on US 201 north to Bingham, SR 16 to Abbot Village and then ride a few miles north to Greenville, at the south end of Moosehead Lake. Nestled among tree covered mountains, Moosehead Lake is the largest lake east of the Mississippi in one state. While here, you might want to join a cruise to Mount Kineo, a historic American Indian gathering place in Moosehead Lake. 

Day 4

Day 5

  • Greenville, ME – Bar Harbor, ME
  • 120.0 mi / 192.0 km

Today you are heading for the coast and from Greenville take SR 6/15 until you reach Route 15 south, follow the signs to Bangor. Located at the head of tidewater and navigation on the Penobscot River, Bangor is the principal retail, cultural and commercial center for eastern and northern Maine – a nice stop for lunch en route.

You continue your ride on US 1A towards Ellsworth and then pick up SR 3 to Bar Harbor, a place with a special mystique. Bar Harbor lies at the entrance to Acadia National Park on Mountain Desert Island and the beauty of sea, mountain, lake and forest have made this region well-known as a resort. 

Day 6

  • Bar Harbor, ME – Kennebunkport, ME
  • 190.0 mi / 304.0 km

You leave Bar Harbor and get on Route 1 south, which follows the entire coast of Maine – you are riding one of the most striking coastlines in America.

En route you should make a stop in Camden, a beautiful harbor town with a dramatic scenery – here, the Appalachian Mountains meet the Atlantic, and the confluence makes a dramatic setting.

As you continue riding south you get to Rockland, which is the world’s largest distributor of lobsters. We suggest riding south on Route 131 to Port Clyde, a part of Maine that’s relatively tourist-free.

Continue on Route 1. After a few miles you reach Boothbay Harbor, a picturesque seaport that retains the atmosphere of an Old New England.

Today’s destination is Kennebunkport, a popular summer resort and a favorite among artists and writers who have found both its history and quaint setting conducive to creativity.

Day 7

  • Kennebunkport, ME - Manchester, NH
  • 75.0 mi / 120.0 km
