August 18, 2009: Belfast, ME to Bar Harbor, ME

The final leg, 62 miles from Belfast, Maine to Bar Harbor, Maine.  Everyone was hoping for a Sunday afternoon ride, but the rugged Maine countryside had different thoughts.  The day started off hot and humid, the rollers were in place, the road surface and shoulders were not even worthy of a mountain bike, much less road bikes.

One of Maine's wonderful shoulders.

Early this morning we set out – regardless of the conditions, as long as our bicycles remained functional and in one piece, we were going to finish this tour. It was only fitting that over the last two miles as we approached Bar Harbor, we would have to scale one last long, steep hill.

Early this afternoon we all assembled at the beach near the town peer in old town Bar Harbor and dipped our front tires into the Atlantic Ocean. After bicycling 4,259 miles and climbing a total of 140,825 feet,  the journey was completed.

Today’s Bicycling Distance: 62 miles.
