ITINERARY

Your guide will meet you at our rental shop The Portland Encyclepedia located on the corner of Commercial and India Streets for the start of your tour.

The trip begins with an easy ride along the Eastern Promenade bike path. We will stop along the path to learn the history of Casco Bay and the Calander Islands as well as the life story of George Cleeve, Portland’s lawsuit-happy co-founder.

Next stop is Back Cove and Portland’s Deering neighborhood. Created in the 19 Century by wealthy residents angry about Portland’s rising property taxes.

From Back Cove you cycle into the Portland’s West End. Historically, the swanky part of town, the West End features broad tree-lined streets and beautiful homes from Victorian to Shingle Style.

Your last stop is the Old Port where your guide will share some of their favorite eating and drinking spots with you.
