Wednesday – Welcome to Maine!
You’ll stay in one of the most beautiful, ocean-side resorts in Maine known as one of the finest luxury resorts in New England. The Samoset Resort is a five-star property perched on 230 waterfront acres overlooking Penobscot Bay and will be your gorgeous home away from home.IMG_7436

Your hotel is located near Rockland, a charming ocean-side village with restaurants, shops and a harbor full of classic Atlantic schooners.

When you check in, your Rolling Thru Maine representative will be there to facilitate the process and make sure everything goes smoothly. You’ll receive your Rolling Thru Maine package, with credentials, route maps (in case you decide to ride on your own), and your special gift.

It’s a perfect time to make new friends as well as meet your tour guides, and hear about the highlights of the upcoming adventure. Best of all, we’ve put together one heck of a dinner: Seafood Chowder, New England Baked Haddock, Sauteed Breast of Chicken Marsala, Marinated Flank Steak


Thursday – Lighthouses and Coastal Riding – Approx 160 miles: 

Lighthouse on a Rocky Coastline

Get ready for a great day of riding following a great breakfast. We’ve created the ideal route taking you along one of the most scenic coastal routes on the east coast. Have your camera ready, because we’ll guide you along winding peninsula roads, periodically riding along the seaside, passing by and visiting lighthouses along the way. You’ll enjoy the newly paved roads Maine has to offer.

Riding along bays and coves, through peninsulas, and past picturesque fishing villages, you’ll arrive at a fun, out of the way, ocean-side restaurant for a fabulous meal. Directly overlooking the ocean, with fantastic views, you’ll feast on Seafood Newburg w/lobster, shrimp, and haddock, Roast Boneless Pork Loin w/Port wine demi-glace, Grilled Chicken w/creamy pesto and more.

Curving scenic road in Acadia National ParkAfterward, we’ll stop in one of the most picturesque fishing villages in the state, giving you an opportunity to enjoy the unique and wonderful atmosphere unique to Maine. Shop, walk along the fishing piers and enjoy a Maine Whoopie Pie (so good, there’s a fan website for them). When we return to the hotel, you’ll have the evening to yourself. Enjoy a dinner at one of the 4 restaurants at the hotel or if you prefer to choose from the many restaurants nearby Rockland has to offer.

Rockport Harbor


Friday – Fishing Villages, Lighthouses, and Mountaintops – Approx 135 miles: Marshall Point Lighthouse
Today’s route, following another great breakfast, is a mix of land and seacoast. From a quaint fisherman village to a mountaintop with a breathtaking view, this day will surely please you. We’ll start the day with a quick stop at the transportation museum. We’ll then take you to the famous Marshall Lighthouse seen in the movie Forrest Gump.

      Lodging for 3 nights for 2 people in 1 room: $657.00
      Total cost: $1,795.00

      We hope you can join us!

    1. Hi David,

      We understand. Different riders want different distances and experiences. Our tours have been hugely popular (some selling out in 24 hours). Our Maine tour was loved (!) last year, but if you’re looking to log more miles then this may not be for you.

      Also, some of our attendees do arrive a day early, or leave a day later, to soak up more riding. Perhaps that could be an option for you.

      Best,
      Stacy

      1. Hi Charles,

        The total for 2 people, which includes your lodging for 3 nights in a gorgeous hotel, 3 breakfasts, 2 lunches, 2 dinners, guides who lead you on the tour, a souvenier bag, a chase car and more is $1,795

        We have been told our pricing is great compared to other events, where you don’t get nearly what we offer.

        We hope you will give one of our tours a shot sometimes soon1

        Thanks!

      2. Charles –
        As a two-event participant, I can tell you that this is a very special rider’s event that you’ll never forget. It may seem pricey, but it’s first-class all the way. I wrote an article for ROADRunner magazine on the first one,” Rolling Thru Vermont”, a few years ago. The e-magazine article can be found on their website, under articles of previous rides. If you’re a “mature rider” (as am I), I would strongly encourage you to go for it. You won’t be sorry. Hope to see you there.

    2. Hi David. I noticed your response and can tell you that, as a Riding-Thru participant X 2, this riding event is all about quality, not maybe quantity. When you can stop every so often to check out some really neat scenery, and mix with motorcyclists of your caliber, it’s very cool, and should be experienced. “Riding-Thru” events aren’t for everybody, but I’ve found them to be a most memorable chapter in my up-coming book, “My Life on a Bike -What a Ride!” Come along if it’s not sold out.
