There is a ClimateRide planned to take placealong the North Atlantic’s scenic coastline, to inspire and empower citizens to work toward a new energy future.
The first day, will start at the iconic Bar Harbor through Acadia National Park, and along Maine’s rocky coast, dotted with quaint harbor towns, lighthouses, and wild blueberry patches. Heading south, we’ll explore quiet roads to our first of many summer camp or retreat centers — all of which offer cabins to sleep in.
The next two days are spent pedaling along Maine’s scenic Mid-Coast region with amazing riding and terrific stops along the way including Portland, Maine’s largest city and a bustling port town.
The fourth day pedals through classic Maine as we pass through the towns of Kennebunk, Wells, Ogunquit, and York. Along the way, we’ll stop for a tasty lunch at one of Maine’s scenic lighthouses, before riding along some of New Hampshire’s 18 miles of scenic shoreline.
The final day is a beautiful ride in Massachusetts where we will retrace, in reverse, Paul Revere’s famous midnight ride of 1775.
Climate Ride events raise money for a collection of innovative organizations including 350.org, Rails-to-Trails Conservancy, Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC), Green America, Climate Counts, 1% for the Planet, San Francisco Bicycle Coalition, Washington Area Bicyclist Association, and Transportation Alternatives.
