This is a BIKEternity custom tour and is only available for the Fall New England tour group.
Bike the best of the New England in five states starting in beautiful Bar Harbor ME, cycling through NH, VT, RI, MA and finish in Manchester NH. The kaleidoscope of the autumn foliage during this time of year is enough to keep you mesmerized as you pedal on the back roads. The coastline and Cape Cod’s seashore with the salt air and sunny breeze will heighten your senses as you ride through the quiet villages along the bay.
You’ll smell the tang of salt air while spinning along the Maine coast. Listen to the symphony of gulls and foghorns along the shores of New England and Cape Cod. The kaleidoscope of autumn foliage in the White Mountains of New Hampshire/Vermont will provide eye candy for miles. Tempt your taste buds with local treats, from delicious crab cakes and seafood chowder to fresh cider doughnuts and real maple syrup. Top it off with a touch of local history of the quaint communities have to offer, and you’ve got New England bike touring at its best.

Bar Harbor, ME
Some Maine coastal towns have an unfair advantage. Perched on Mount Desert Island at the gateway to Acadia National Park, this historic resort town still resonates with the Victorian splendor of bygone days, not to mention the backdrop of Cadillac Mountain.
The self-dubbed “Jewel of the Coast” is a well-deserved moniker, and this Mid-Coast harbor town of 4,823 on Penobscot Bay is tucked where mountains reach down to the sea.
Oak Bluffs, MA
The brightly colored gingerbread Victorian cottages make this laid-back enclave on Martha’s Vineyard a true New England confection. And on one night each summer, the cottages lights up with Chinese lanterns, making it likely the loveliest place on earth.
Unique View: The nation’s oldest platform carousel.
Set at the outermost tip of Cape Cod, surrounded by water on three sides and backed by vast sand dunes on the fourth, Provincetown is a colorful gem that’s drawn artists and writers for generations.
Unique View: A bird’s eye, from the top of the Pilgrim Monument.
