Cyclists can choose from two loops that start and end at The Jackson Laboratory: A 20-mile loop through Acadia National Park starts at 9:00 a.m., and a 6-mile loop dubbed “Cookie’s Loop” starts at 10:30 a.m. Registration is from 8:00-11:00 a.m. There is a registration fee of $25. All cyclists must raise at least $100 to compete in Cookie’s Ride. A post-ride celebration will follow at The Jackson Laboratory.
