Have you signed up for the Maine Lighthouse Ride yet????  Registrations are coming in fast and furious! (Which is NOT the way we’d like to see you ride this year).  Don’t be left on the sidelines watching your friends and family ride by!  Register NOW!  Our ride has sold out for the past 5 years!  First 500 registrants receive free MLR socks!  Socks will be available for $10.00 after that and at the event. 

More information here.

 CAN’T DECIDE WHAT TO DO ON SEPTEMBER 7, 2019? WE HAVE A GREAT IDEA!

 If you haven’t ridden with us in a few years, please consider joining us again. Our tent at the finish line is filled with pizzas, salads, fruit, ice cream, Shipyard Beer, music, 50/50 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.

  • Make sure your bike is in tiptop shape. We do have SAG wagons and bike repair along the route in case you missed something.
  • Be honest about your riding condition. We offer 40, 62 and 100 mile rides!
    • We do pride ourselves as one of flattest rides in the country!
  • Download or print your maps now so you are familiar with the ride come September.
  • Order an MLR Jersey now so you can wear it before and during your ride. Nothing will get you more psyched about the event then wearing it while you train!

Go here to order your jersey now!
$81.00  - Long Sleeve Jerseys available as well.
