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 soon). 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 soon).
