This trip offers three options, based on availability. Please note accommodations are first come, first serve. There are a limited number of rooms available in the lodge. There is also a yurt that's popular for group use (sleeping bags recommended), or you can camp (full facilities).
Single rooms can often be accommodated, especially with advance notice. There is no extra charge.
All prepared meals are homemade and never out of a box or can. Favorites are chili, fresh cornbread, salads, black bean and veggie burritos, muffins, granola, waffles, pancakes, and of course, maple syrup from Maine.
Plan to budget money for meals not included in the trip (see itinerary) and for local beer or wine at the lodge.
You'll be provided a suggested packing list by the operator upon booking. However, plan to bring a light wind breaker, layers, small backpack or fanny pack, sneakers or trail running shoes, biking shorts, fast drying tops (long sleeve and short sleeve), and tights.
No prior mountain biking experience is necessary, but you should be in fairly good physical condition, and be comfortable on a bike.
We highly recommend purchasing travel insurance for all trips. Travel insurance allows you to seek reimbursement if you are forced to cancel your trip for unforeseeable reasons, or if you need to cover medical help, emergency transport, and/or theft or accidental damage while traveling. We recommend World Nomads as a provider.
