First Annual Farm Ride

Fresh Trail Adventures

June 23 at 8:00 am - 5:00 pm, $35

New Canada Community Center 1809 Caribou Road, New Canada, Maine

http://freshtrails.com/event/f-a-r-m-1st-annual/

Join us and embark on our inaugural epic cycling adventure through the best terrain the St. John Valley has to offer! The FARM ride will take you through Northern Maine's growing potato, buckwheat, and wheat fields with vistas into neighboring New Brunswick, Canada. Many more details are available on the event site including images. 

Matt Michaud has captured quite eloquently in the following essay the essence of the FARM ride that he designed and planned in its entirety.  He believes that it will spark your interest and awaken your senses which will make for an unforgettable adventure.  Don’t miss it, FTA’s FARM ride June 23, 2018. Roll out at 8:00 AM out of New Canada/Daigle Pond on route 161.  Register online Bikereg at  www.freshtrails.com

Usually, one’s first ride on a new route is the most memorable; new terrain, the anticipation of what’s around the next bend (or hill), exploring roads that few cyclists have ridden before, and the things you cannot plan for; a moose quietly standing along the side of the road as you pass, new friendships made along the way, or that sweet stretch of road where you feel like your pedaling like a pro.  As you’re riding the FARM ride, take time to slow down enough to look, listen and feel.

Other Maine event offered by Fresh Trail Adventures are:

Tour de L'Acadie, August 12 - 8am - 5pm, $20

University of Maine at Fort Kent 23 University Drive, Fort Kent, Maine   

Fresh Trails Adventures invites you to join us for a one day, 32 mile/50 km or 54 mile/80km annual bike randonnée on the backroads of Maine, New Brunswick and Quebec. Come together to share, celebrate and experience the Acadia of the new world on two wheels.

Cue sheets and/or downloadable GPS will be provided that morning. Check out the event website for many more details! http://freshtrails.com

Fresh Trails Adventures invites you to embark on a journey of lifelong fitness and living well. We specialize in providing unique, fully supported cycling tours throughout New England, Eastern Canada, and Europe, while experiencing fine regional cuisine and bed & breakfast lodging.
