What is the Trek Across Maine?
The Trek Across Maine is a multi-day, multi-route option cycling event starting and ending at the Brunswick Recreation Center at the Brunswick Landing. Overnight stops at Bates College in Lewiston 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.
With close to 650 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 as on route support teams.
The American Lung Association provides housing and meals for all cyclists and volunteers during the weekend (as needed). Housing options still available include: camping (provide your own tent), fieldhouse (provide your own mat) or you may choose to make your own arrangements (hotel, home, friend's house, etc). Shuttle services will be available to some areas hotels if you choose to make your own sleeping arrangements off campus. A complete list of shuttle locations is available here.
