The other loop goes around Estes Lake and through West Kennebunk. The Springvale ride will feature hills — hard to avoid them. For the Airport ride park in the parking lot for the Cockpit Cafe at the airport, towards the back of the lot.Park at Crum Cycle or the parking lot adjacent to the Nasson Community Center for the Springvale ride
