Join Fresh Trails Adventures, and embark on a cycling adventure through the best biking the state of Maine has to offer.  The FARM Ride will take you on hilly (very hilly) and meandering, mostly gravel roads through newly planted potato and wheat fields, with vistas into the Saint John Valley and neighboring New Brunswick, Canada. 

The FARM Ride is not for the faint of heart; climb over 1,000 feet for every 10 miles ridden, for a total of 60 miles.  It is sure to test your physical and mental prowess.  A mid-route fuel station will keep you going when you need it the most.  Relax at the finish with a post-ride BBQ featuring local burgers from Aroostook Beef Company, cold beer from First Mile Brewery, buckwheat ploye ice cream sandwiches from Bouchard Family Farm, and tunes from local musicians.
