Tour de Maine The Plan

Tour de Maine 2002


This nearly 1000 mile trip will take 4 riders though Maine’s wilderness and along its scenic coastline.   We have decided to start our ride in New Hampshire rather than on the Connecticut shore. We will drive to Ken's brother and sister-n-laws house in Hill, NH and depart from there.

 This way we will be into the “good stuff” right away.  We learned from our last tour the importance of training with a fully loaded bike before leaving.  We were not going to be fooled again, or are we?


One thing we did not have a clue about is how important it is to mentally prepare for riding adverse conditions.  Our bodies were ready but our minds would be taxed when we hit the strong winds and rain of the coast.


Like last year, this trip will have a mixture of camping and motels stays.  On this Tour will be Kelley Behrens, Joe Gaudio, Tim Picard and Ken Silvestri.
