Itinerary

Day 1:

Mid-day rendezvous in Newburyport, at the mouth of the Merrimack River. Warm-up ride through the Great Marsh features views of Plum Island, one of the country’s top birding destinations. Return route visits the Parker River National Wildlife Refuge before our welcome dinner.

Day 2:

Pedal a quiet backroads loop south through the classic New England towns of Newbury, Topsfield, and Hamilton, before joining the coast at Crane Beach. A stop in Ipswich, home to the country’s largest collection of First-Period (1625-1725) houses. Relax with an après-ride stroll along Newburyport’s historic streets or waterfront boardwalk.

Day 3:

Broad valley views as we wind inland along the Merrimack River and spin north into New Hampshire. Horse farms and apple orchard country lead to a riverside lunch in Exeter. Afternoon ride traces the seacoast past Fort Constitution, en route to Portsmouth. Optional visit to Strawbery Banke, an outdoor museum reflecting the local history of architecture and lifestyles.

Day 4:

Cross the Piscataqua River into Maine, coasting past the seaside villages of Kittery, York Village, and York Harbor. Stop at Cape Neddick for a perfect view of Nubble Light, and a lobster roll. Tidal inlets, evergreen forests, and rolling farmland line our route to Kennebunkport for a two-night stay overlooking the coast.

Day 5: Pedal a coastal loop past Walker Point, the Rachel Carson National Wildlife Refuge, and the land’s-end villages of Cape Porpoise and Biddeford Pool. Afternoon free to explore local beaches, shop in Kennebunkport, or stroll the tranquil grounds of the Franciscan Monastery.

Day 6:

After breakfast a transfer by van to the Wells Amtrak station for train connections south to Boston or north to Portland.
