Circle the day on the calendar – cycling season begins this Wednesday!

Yes, roughly a month ago it seemed like the winds and weather from the Arctic would settle into our corner of New England for the duration of the winter, but as we’ve come learn, the one constant about our version of the weather is change.

Biking and back roads – the best way to see Maine

After a long and often dreary spring filled with showers and cloudy days, it has been a great summer. I know the summer is not over, but when the temperature manages to reach the lower 40’s in the morning, it’s time to at least cast an eye toward the fall.
