The wait is over! You are cordially invited to the second annual Maine Woods Rambler, at the New England Outdoor Center in Millinocket. The New England Outdoor Center, Katahdin Area Trails, and the Bicycle Coalition of Maine have teamed up to create this most excellent adventure & bicycle wilderness experience.
The weekend kicks off on Saturday with an optional guided trail tour, highlighting the newly built mountain bike trails at Hammond Ridge. Bring your mountain bike and join the ride, or rent a kayak and hang out on Millinocket Lake.
The main event is on Sunday with two race routes to choose from with mass starts: a 50-km epic ride and a 100-km even-more-epic-er ride. The Sunday ride is best for seasoned riders, as both routes will punish you with challenging climbs and fast descents, and reward you with sweeping vistas of the surrounding lakes, rivers, and peaks.
A guided family trail ride will also take place on Sunday for youth and families who want to check out the trails, with bikes and instruction available courtesy of the Katahdin Gear Library. There will be a post-ride meal at the new NEOC activity center, featuring wood-fired pizza and Maine Beer Company pours.
