With the University of New England (UNE) as our host for the weekend, you’ll be treated to priceless views of the Atlantic Ocean as you begin and end your ride Saturday and Sunday. UNE even has their own private beach to take in a sunrise or enjoy after your ride. Whether you’re looking for a destination weekend away with friends or family, you are an experienced cyclist or a novice, we have a great choice of routes for you ranging from 25 to 100 miles.
Rider check-in begins Friday night with accommodations available at UNE. You can also just join us bright and early Saturday morning before hitting the road. When you return, enjoy the festivities with food, music and massage. The fun continues Saturday evening with an awards ceremony and dinner (additional tickets available online). On Sunday enjoy a full breakfast and then head out for another beautiful ride. When you return, top off a great weekend with a Maine lobster at our traditional Lobster Bake (additional tickets available online).
Whether you are an individual rider, part of a team, or a family looking for a destination weekend supporting an important cause, the Great Maine Getaway is the perfect event for you!
