Join Rob, Sarah & Cedar on their home stretch Tues, 8/21!

Three People, Five Wheels, One Blankie
2012 Family Bicycle Journey through Maine, Atlantic Canada, and Quebec

 Hi Everyone!

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

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 the way:,-70.247784&spn=0.075163,0.118275.

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
