The Maine Bike Book!

MaineDOT and the Maine Office of Tourism has published the tours available for download on this site in a book entitled Explore Maine by Bike. It is currently available by stopping by at one of our Maine Visitor Centers across the state. Visit our Visitor Center page for locations and phone numbers to see if they have any in stock. The visitor centers do not mail out hard copies.

The book has been designed and created by the Maine Department of Transportation in partnership with the Maine Office of Tourism and the Bicycle Coalition of Maine. Maine has been ranked as high as number two in the nation for bike friendliness by the League of American Bicyclists for good reasons, and this book outlines some beautiful places to ride in all areas of the state.
