Nestled amongst verdant hills, with stately old houses, a picturesque harbor, and a charming main street, it is no wonder Camden has been voted the prettiest town in Maine.
Your 3-day bike tour of this classic Maine town begins with a bike ride along a tree-lined ocean preserve and through lush farmland ringed with ancient rock walls. We continue by cycling one of Maine’s most beautiful islands in the heart of Penobscot Bay with ocean views around every corner.
You conclude your tour cycling to the town of Rockland and to my favorite lighthouse, the majestic Owls Head Light. Along the way take time to explore the areas’ many galleries, and relax aboard the deck of an antique wooden sailboat as we enjoy a sunset cruise on Penobscot Bay.
- Cycle Islesboro Island and Maine’s Rocky Coast
- Enjoy a sunset sail on Penobscot Bay
- Explore the shops and galleries of Camden and Rockland

“We had a wonderful time as usual with Summer Feet Cycling. This was our second trip with you and you did not disappoint. The trip was all that was expected and more. The weather was gorgeous, the cycling superb, the accommodations wonderful and comfortable, the sunset cruise and dinner terrific. Best of all, the group and guides were a lot of fun to be with. We certainly enjoyed ourselves immensely. We give give Kim and Sheila high marks for availability, friendliness, assistance, and trying to meet all the needs of a varied cycling group. You get a 10.”
“One of the best vacations we’ve ever had. Being with Alyssa and Jeremy was just as much fun as the biking and the other activities. They were knowledgeable, fun, helpful, and knew what to say and when to say it. They worked very well together.”
“We just started biking this past March. We travel several miles but the land is basically flat. It was a rude awakening when we started the bike tour. … I never worked so hard in my life. BUT I LOVED IT. It made me a better biker and it inspired me to get better. I had a wonderful time!”
“Darcy was a great leader! Enjoyed her immensely. She took care of every detail, was attentive, helpful, knowledgeable, kind. Loved Chess too! Both leaders were excellent!”
