If you haven’t ridden with us in a few years, we’ve missed you.

 Please consider joining us again.  Our tent at the finish line is filled with pizzas, salads, fruit, Friendly's ice cream, Shipyard Beer, music, raffle, sales, and participants sharing stories and laughs about the ride.   The views from Southern Maine Community College are spectacular, as are the smiles from our volunteers.

    • Also, we are eliminating the plastic bags filled with “stuff” – bring a tote with you to registration to pick up your bib, socks (if applicable) pins and emergency tags.
