Three People, Five Wheels, One Blankie
2012 Family Bicycle Journey through Maine, Atlantic Canada, and Quebec
We're having a wonderful re-entry into Maine this week after a sweet border
crossing from Quebec. Details and pictures, as always, are at www.crazyguyonabike.com/doc/biketrip2012.
We've made it as far as Readfield, Maine, with stops planned in Litchfield Sunday,
Pownal on Monday, and home on Tuesday
afternoon, 8/21/12! Cedar will be rejoining us for the end of the trip,
after a fun stay with Sarah's parents and step-mom this past week.
It has felt as though you have been along with us in spirit for the entire
ride, and we would love to honor your presence by inviting you
to ride with us for all or part of the last day of the trip on Tuesday.
(We made the same offer for our ride out of Portland on May 1, but strangely, no one took us up
on this idea. Maybe the rain and mid-40's temps had something to do with
that! :) Or, you could just meet up with us near the end, for
an Ice Cream Social at Beal's Ice Cream at Veranda Street in Portland, where
we'll be from about 4:30 to 6 p.m.
(If it's raining - bring an umbrella! We can always retire to the nearby
Thai noodle place if the rain is really bad.)
Here's our itinerary for the afternoon:
Leaving Bradbury Mountain main parking lot at 1, after lunch. Slowly
working our way south on Rte 9 and then local roads, with various stops
(playground, bathrooms, etc). We'll definitely stop at the new playground
behind the Falmouth Elementary School off Woodville Road, probably some time around 3:00 to 3:30. Aiming to arrive
at Beals around 4:15 or 4:30.
And here's a map of the route, if you'd like to try to meet up with us on
We have some family committments through the last days of the month and then
will be headed back to work as planned on September
4th after the Labor Day weekend. Much love and look forward to
seeing you sometime soon either way!
Rob, Sarah, and Cedar
