Maine doesn’t get any better than this. Gaze out over the Atlantic from the easternmost point in the United States, stop for a snack at wild blueberry barrens, and visit a fishing village that hardly ever sees a tourist. Even in peak summer months, traffic on most of the route won’t be a problem. Although serious cyclists can do it in a day, two days are recommended, as you’ll want time to enjoy the sights and flavors. A sensible overnight is at the motel in Lubec or the campground at Quoddy Head State Park. A side-trip to Campobello is also recommended: Take a third day, and make it an international adventure!
