This ride will be a favorite with beach lovers and historians. Those who just want a short rolling pedal through coastal countryside will be delighted as well. The peninsula south of Bath is home to fascinating historic sites, beautiful beaches, and terrific scenery. Unfortunately, ME 209 — the main north-south road — carries heavy traffic during summer months, and its shoulders are spotty. The length of ME 209 can only be recommended for biking during the off-season. It’s possible to make a loop around much of the Bath peninsula using secondary roads (several very rough dirt and gravel) on a fat-tire bike, but it’s not recommended for road bikes. Fortunately, this short out-and-back ride takes cyclists past some of the peninsula’s most impressive sights.
