Alvin Chase, Board President and owner of Eastern Tire Inc. in Rockland, will lead riders on a loop tour encompassing about 100 country miles.

“Motorcycle enthusiasts love these benefit rides,” said Chase. “Nothing could be better than exploring on our bikes and raising much needed money to conserve this beautiful area.”

The tour will cover territory between Port Clyde and the headwaters of the St. George River at Lake St. George in Liberty, and pass properties protected by the Land Trust such as the Paulsen Farm and Riverview Hayfields Preserve in South Thomaston. Riders will have amazing views of the lakes, river, blueberry fields, and farms throughout the watershed, as well as the beautiful coastline on the St. George Peninsula.

Georges River Land Trust is committed to encouraging citizens to discover the river and care for the land throughout the 14 communities in the St. George River watershed. This event is part of Revelry for the River, a celebration of 25 years of conservation.
