Explore Merrymeeting Bay Bike Ride
Sunday, July 22
The bike rides have been cancelled due to the predicted rain and thunderstorms on Sunday, but Bowdoinham is still hosting Open Farm Day and the local food bbq. The bbq will be held inside in case of rain. To find out more about Bowdoinham's Open Farm Day events, visit: http://www.bowdoinham.com/event-open-farm-day-2 or the town of Bowdoinham's facebook page.
Visit the farms and explore the scenes of Open Farm Day as part of this year's Explore Merrymeeting Bay Bike Tours! The ride will include three led bike ride options for a range of abilities and interests.
9:30am - 24 mile ride through Bowdoinham and Richmond with stops to explore farms along the way. This is a good ride for beginner or intermediate riders.
10:00am - 35 mile ride through Bowdoinham, Richmond, and Topsham with short stops at farms on the route. This ride is best for intermediate or advanced riders.
11:00am - 14-mile ride with stops to explore some of Bowdoinham’s Forever Farms. This ride will be led by Maine Farmland Trust staff and is good for beginner & intermediate riders and those who are interested in learning more about farmland protection in one of the richest farming areas in Bowdoinham.
If you'd rather explore the farms at your own pace, you can create your own ride! There will be a table with information about suggested bike routes along with refreshment stops at Mailly Waterfront Park from 9am to 3pm. Join us to explore the Bay and learn about Merrymeeting Trail!
