- All rides are dependent on the availability of a Ride Leader
“B” rides will be between 25 to 28 miles. The average speed of this ride depends on the Rider’s ability, but we try to target a minimum pace of 14 to 15 mph. The Ride will typically have 3 stops along the way to regroup and determine if changes need to be made to distance or pace. No one will get left behind. The Ride will follow the same route each week.

The “B+” Ride is typically 28 – 30 miles in length, with a target average pace of 16 – 17 mph.
The ride normally runs along the Maine Coast through Kennebunkport to Cape Porpoise, Fortunes Rocks and Biddeford Pool, looping back to the starting point.
The “A-” Ride will run between 32 – 35 miles. Average speed for this ride targets 18 – 19 mph.
There are multiple routes. We will work to keep riders together by keeping pulls short, rotating to the back, keeping an eye out for riders off the back, and having stops for regrouping.
The “A” ride also uses multiple routes. This ride will run between 32 and 38 miles in length. The average speed is typically between 19 to 20 mph, depending on conditions. The emphasis will be on riding hard, but also riding safely. Anyone sprinting off the front will get no sympathy if they get lost. The ride will regroup periodically at major intersections or turns.

5:30 PM – Crum Cycle / Nasson Bike Center in Springvale
Join the Maine Coast Cycling on Wednesday evening, riding from the Nasson Community Center in Springvale.
After Labor Day the ride moves to the Sanford Airport at 5:45 PM. We usually ride about 30 miles at about 18 – 19 mph. The average speed will drop after dark.
The Airport location has 2 rides, one loop heads to North Berwick and back through Wells. 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. In Springvale, park at Crum Cycle, or the parking lot adjacent to the Nasson Community Center.
This ride starts in the spring with lights for the first few weeks, then goes back to using lights in the fall and will ride until the snow flies.
