The FARM Ride-Maine's Premier Gravel Grinder @ New Canada Community Center

Join Fresh Trails Adventures, and embark on our second annual gravel cycling adventure through the best terrain the state of Maine has to offer. The FARM Ride will take you on hilly and meandering paved, and gravel roads through northern Maine’s newly planted potato and wheat fields, with vistas into neighboring New Brunswick, Canada. Ride among old and new friends on a road bike with puncture resistant tires, cross bike or gravel grinder (recommended). A downloadable GPX file for your GPS will help you navigate (check back in June @ www.freshtrails.com). The FARM Ride is not for the faint of heart; climb nearly 1,000 feet for every 10 miles ridden, for a total of 60 miles. It is sure to test your physical and mental prowess. A mid-route fuel station will keep you going when you need it the most. Celebrate your finish with a post-ride BBQ featuring our local Aroostook Beef Company burgers, a cold pint of craft beer from First Mile Brewery, buckwheat ployes and ice cream sandwiches from Bouchard Family Farm, and tunes from local musicians.
