The wide open spaces and rolling countryside of northern Maine are among the richest, most productive agricultural land in the state. In Maine, they call this "The County," and here the potato is not just about making french fries; it’s a staple of the region’s economy.
These exhilarating rides take cyclists through the heart of this beautiful, rural landscape with stops along the way to learn about Aroostook County. The 54-mile loop takes in farm and potato country from Washburn to Caribou to Fort Fairfield and back to Presque Isle. Plan your visit to Aroostook County in mid-summer when the potato blossoms are at their peak—beautiful pink and white blossoms as far as the eye can see.
