ROCKLAND, Maine — The 13th annual Maine Lobster Ride will take place on Sunday, July 20, in Rockland. Produced by the Bicycle Coalition of Maine, the ride winds along idyllic country roads past swimming ponds and lighthouses, offering stunning views of the Maine coast.
Bicycling Magazine recognized the ride as one of the top ten centuries in the country. In past years, nearly 1,000 bicyclists participated.
Riders can choose from five distance options (15, 30, 50, 80 or 100 miles), with staggered start times beginning at 7:30 a.m. All routes begin and end at Oceanside High School in Rockland. The ride is fully supported, with maps, rest stops and support vehicles along with a freshly made lobster roll lunch (alternatives available) served at the conclusion of the ride.
Registration costs are $95 and $85 for seniors with a $20 discount for coalition members. Children ages 12 to 17 pay $35, and those under 12 ride free. All riders will receive the famous Lobster Ride bike socks and admission to local museums free with registration. Proceeds from the Maine Lobster Ride support the Bicycle Coalition of Maine’s work to improve bicycling in Maine.
This year’s ride is possible with the generous support of our sponsors, including: L.L. Bean, Hannaford, The Dempsey Challenge, Pen Bay Healthcare, the Maine Lobster Festival, Liberty Hospitality and Maine Magazine.
