Maine Lobster Ride & Roll ready for its 13th trip along the coast on July 20

Written by: Karen Beaudoin

The Bicycle Coalition of Maine knows how to put on a great ride.

The organization has proven that over and again with a variety of pedaling events and the annual Lobster Ride & Roll is at the top of the list. If you need proof you can either get on your bike and ride it or listen to the folks at Bicycling Magazine, who picked the 2013 ride as one of the top 10 centuries in the country.

The Ride & Roll offers six routes (100 mile, 80 mile, two 50 mile options, 30 mile, 15 mile) that pass through Rockland, South Thomaston, St. George, Port Clyde, Owl’s Head, Rockport, Camden, Lincolnville, Searsmont and Hope. After the ride, participants will enjoy a fresh Maine lobster roll lunch, with vegetarian and tuna options available.
