Fall Foliage Classic Day 7 - Sanford to Portland ME

Crew’s Log…

Distance: 42 miles

Climbing: 1500’

Weather: Low 50s to start. Upper 50s to end. Winds out of the west. Mostly cloudy all day long.

Highlights of the day:

We rolled out early to grab breakfast on the road. It was cloudy, which is good for fall. It means it didn’t get quite so cold overnight. It was upper 50s when we rolled to breakfast. After sandwiches, donuts and coffee, we headed out with the wind at our backs (mostly). It was lovely.

It was our last day on the road for this tour. We had more Maine rollers to start and then a little more downhill towards the coast to flatter (emphasis on the –er) terrain. The leaves were out with a bit more color and we ooh-ed and aah-ed as we passed them. We arrived back in Portland by noon. Luggage distributed and hugs all around, the 2018 Fall Foliage Classic is complete.

This was a great way to end AbB’s 2018 cycling season. Fun Cyclists. Good weather (most of the time). Great scenery. A challenging climb or twenty. Good food & conversation. We look forward another great season in 2019 and hope to see you with us on the road soon.
