Maine Foliage Tour Day 0 - Portland ME

Crew’s Log

It’s Opening Day of the Maine Fall Foliage Tour. Five days enjoying the beautiful fall colors of Maine. We start in Portland and work our way up into Augusta, the state capitol. We then head back east to Rockport to head down the coast back to Portland. Hills, waterways, coastal views – all accented with the warm colors of fall. 

We should have some very moderate temperatures for this tour and good color. There might be a little rain later in the week, but that’s later and who knows what Mother Nature has in store. If Yankee Magazine’s peak foliage color forecast are to be believed, we could be in for some lovely pictures. They do seem to be a bit of an authority around here. Ah-yup…

Staff snuck in a ride before the riders arrived. It was a chance to check out the colors and get a little wet. Then it was back to work right after lunch. Bikes checked, riders oriented and we capped the day off with our first group dinner. Time to sleep and be ready to ride on the morrow.
