The Trek Across Maine is a 3-day, 180 mile route cycling tour from the mountains of Sunday River Ski Resort to the sea in Belfast. Overnight stops at the University of Maine in Farmington and Colby College in Waterville provide a place to rest and relax after each leg of the Trek. Activities, entertainment and food are all a part of the full Trek experience at each location.
NEW - 2 day option
The Trek Across Maine is offering a 2 day, 97 mile route option for the 2017 event. This option will eliminate the Friday portion of the Trek (riding from Sunday River to the University of Maine at Farmington). Cyclists will begin their ride at Colby College on Saturday, enjoy overnight accommodations at Colby, and complete the ride with all other participants in Belfast on Sunday. Activities, entertainment and food are all a part of the full Trek experience for this 2 day ride!
With close to 750 volunteers each year, the Trek is fully supported in all areas. Volunteers provide support at rest stops and intersections along the route, as cheerleaders and traffic control at the finish line, and trained medical professionals from Delta Ambulance provide medical support along the route and at each facility throughout the weekend. Bike shops from across the state volunteer their time to make sure your bike holds up just as long as you do as you complete your ride.
The American Lung Association provides housing and meals for all cyclists and volunteers during the weekend (as needed). Housing options include: camping (provide your own tent), dorm beds, and gym floor (provide your own mat). Shuttle services are available to some areas hotels if you choose to make your own sleeping arrangements off campus.
