My husband and I are making the trip up there to do the 40-miler and we're really lookin' forward to it. Just wanted to see if anyone else was familiar with it or the Eastern Trail in general. Thanks!

I'm going up with a couple of friends - we're also doing the 40 miles. We'll be the ones at the end of the pack - riding slow and leisurely.

I did this ride last year, its fun with lots of beautiful scenery!

That's wonderful to hear! Is the ride flat? I am assuming so but just wanted to make sure. We can't wait to take tons of pictures. We're definitely going to be taking it leisurely as well.

Maine is not particularly flat but I don't remember anything too big.

If you want to try and meet up, send me a PM and I'll send you my cell phone number. Even if we ride at different speeds, we can start out together and maybe meet up afterward. Our plan is to head into Portland after the ride for lunch.

Its looking like rain for most of the day in Portland so I most likely won't drive up there.

We missed you! It was wet but fun and in the end a bit chilly. ;)

Here are my pics from the ride:
