You can register now for the annual Pedal the Penobscot eide, which will be held on Sunday, Sept. 11.

Bangor Land Trust’s Pedal the Penobscot celebrates cycling and supports Bangor’s wild back yard. The ride offers five distance options, from a family-friendly 10 miles to a must-do ‘flat’ century route. This one-day ride offers beautiful views of the mighty and historic Penobscot River, tours small towns, and winds along rural roads. Challenge yourself to go farther than you’ve gone before!

Register to help Bangor Land Trust continue to offer access to unique and valuable natural areas. Riders of all ages and abilities are welcome and encouraged. Riders receive annual membership to Bangor Land Trust and are entered into a raffle for prizes donated by area businesses. The first 150 to register also receive a special 10th anniversary tech shirt.

Begin at the Bangor waterfront and finish at High Tide Restaurant and Bar in Brewer for a post-ride barbecue. Rest stops, sweeps and sag wagons are available throughout the ride. Riders must wear helmets and obey all traffic laws. Children under 14 must be accompanied by an adult. Rain or shine!

Register by Thursday, July 14 to receive an early-bird discount. Ride as an individual, with a friend, or as a team.
