Maine coast ride
Hey, route 1 is much better than Rt 9 unless you are simply in a hurry. Route 1 south from Calais is great, take a few side trips. Do not miss going right off Rt 1 in Harrington onto Rt 182, it will meet up with Rt 1 again further south in Ellsworth. Rt 182 is called the Blackwoods Rd and is a great cruise, lots of curves and views.
From Ellsworth you can go to Mt Desert isle, all sorts of fun rides in Acadia Park on the island.
When are you planning the ride?
