Amazing Summer Cycling Vacation Rides

Cycling vacations create everlasting memories that help inspire and sustain healthy lifestyles. For many of us, it’s our favorite way to experience beautiful places, our favorite way to be invigorated in the great outdoors, and a fantastic way to share adventures with those who are special to us. We thought we’d share a few favorite rides from our intermediate and avid summer cycling vacations to help whet your appetite. Begin your dreaming here and, remember, these are dreams that really can come true.

This great ride provides expansive scenic reward throughout the climb up Cadillac Mountain, the highest mountain on the east coast of the US. It features a bald, granite-domed summit with spectacular 360° views over the islands and coastline of Downeast Maine. This epic option during the final day of our very scenic Acadia bike tour is perfect for both intermediate and avid cyclists alike with a max grade of 7.3% and an elevation gain of 1100’ over 3 ½ miles. Yes, those are Sojourn guests riding the gradual and winding road to the top – you can do it this summer too!
