Musings on the beauty of the road trip; by plane, car, boat, bike, foot…

Cape Elizabeth on Two Wheels

A 55km bike ride from Portland’s old waterfront to Cape Elizabeth is the most unencumbered way to enjoy the beautiful beaches and coastline of Maine.

The ride, although exhilarating in itself, is accented by stops along the way:  The Lobster Shack at Two Lights, ice cream at Kettle Cove, fresh baked goods at Scratch Baking Co., more hand made ice cream at Two Scoops on Preble, and of course, a stop at the Portland Light Head (the most photographed lighthouse in the world).

You could drive the same route, but you would miss the natural essence of this beautiful state. I can not wait to return
