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, with a friend, or register a team! You'll receive an annual membership to Bangor Land Trust and are entered in a raffle for prizes. The first 150 to register receive an event shirt.
The finish celebration will be at High Tide Restaurant. Rest stops, sweeps and sag wagons are available throughout the ride. Riders must wear helmets and obey traffic laws. Children under 14 must be accompanied by an adult. Pedal the Penobscot takes place rain or shine.
