Take a bike: Maine’s best places to rent and ride for all skill levels

Written by: Leslie Bridgers

Learning to ride a bike is a rite of passage for most kids. And even if the riding ends there, the skill gets so emblazoned in your memory that the fact you’ll never forget is a cliché. Although bike riding may not be among your regular activities, it can be a great way to spend a day on vacation – or just a day off – getting to take in the sights and fresh air, while getting exercise that will help justify an indulgent meal or ice cream cone later. Most of Maine’s hot destinations have bike rental shops that will get you fully equipped and send you off on a route based on your experience – often straight from the store. Here are some recommendations for where to rent when you’re visiting the state’s most popular travel spots, which also happen to have some of the best biking.
