Carriage Road Bike Ride 6-9-8-7-E-7-17-16-25-23-15-14-10-8-9-6 – Tuesday – July 9, 2013
Today, Dan & Tricia and Bill & I did a challenging bike ride.
It was about 16.2 miles and seemed to be much more uphill than downhill;o((
We started and ended at Eagle Lake parking and followed our map
from post to post as described in the title.
Between Post 8 and 7, we took a short break to hike .2 miles to the top of Conner’s Nubble. This spot became a place we returned to several times during our stay near Acadia.
We had found the Blueberry Stash;o))
The big capital E is an error…we went 2 miles in the wrong direction;o(
Then we had to come back 2 miles to post 7 to get back on track!!
Also, if you ever decide to do this ride,
I would highly recommend at post 16 go directly to post 15.
The roads are very steep if you head to 25 & 23.
It is beautiful and would make a nice walk, but it is very difficult biking.
Also arriving early at Eagle Lake Parking (before 8 am) is critical.
Otherwise you will be parking on the road and may not find parking at all.
While it was a challenging ride...
It was a very pretty ride as well:o))
