Why We Ride
Bangor Land Trust needs your support to secure public access to local lands, conserve wildlife habitat and maintain trails. Your participation shows our community that biking is fun and important. This awareness will support Bangor Trails and help make Bangor more bicycle-friendly.
You can do it!
Pedal the Penobscot is a RIDE, not a race! Riders of all ages and abilities are encouraged and welcome. Riders under 14 must be accompanied by an adult.
Choose from our 14, 28, 76 and 100 mile routes. All routes travel along both sides of the beautiful Penobscot River beginning at the Bangor waterfront.
