Bangor Land Trust’s Pedal the Penobscot celebrates cycling and supports Bangor’s wild back yard. The ride offers five distance options, from a family-friendly 12 miles to a must-do ‘flat’ century route. This one-day ride offers beautiful views of the mighty and historic Penobscot River, tours small towns, and winds along rural roads. Challenge yourself to go farther than you’ve gone before!
Register to help Bangor Land Trust continue to offer access to unique and valuable natural areas. Riders of all ages and abilities are welcome and encouraged. Ride solo, ride with a friend, or register a team! Riders receive an annual membership to Bangor Land Trust and are entered into a raffle for prizes donated by area businesses. The first 150 to register also receive an event shirt.
The finish celebration will be at the High Tide Restaurant in Brewer. Rest stops, sweeps and sag wagons are available throughout the ride. Riders must wear helmets and obey all traffic laws. Children under 14 must be accompanied by an adult. Pedal the Penobscot takes place rain or shine.
The Bangor Land Trust office at 8 Harlow Street in downtown Bangor will be open Friday, September 8 from 10 to 5 and Saturday, September 9 from 10 to 12 for packet pickup. Riders may also pick up their packets at the ride's starting location the morning of the ride.
