MAINE DAY TOURS
York & the surrounding southern Maine coastal towns offer spectacular coastal scenery with direct ocean views along route and coastal forest to provide shade. During our day tours, we love to show our guests our hometown rides and off-the-beaten track sites which include stops at lighthouses, historical sites, working harbors, and plenty of coastal scenery. At the end of your day trip ride we will head to a locally-owned brewery or restaurant for a taste of locally crafted beer or alternatively a local ice cream shop for a post ride treat.
Our day trips offer you a chance to take in a relaxed day of cycling through the Greater York Region. Tour mileage depends on each group’s request, ability & desire to have the best possible adventure. We may cover 10 miles up to 40 miles per day tour depending on the group. Some towns visited may include: Kittery, Kennebunkport, Ogunquit, Portsmouth, New Castle Island and Dover, NH.
All tours meet at Berger’s Bike Shop in York, Maine on Rt. 1A.
