Biking the Maine Coast

  • 3

Hi Chowhounds!
My girlfriend and I are going to be setting off in a few weeks to take a bike tour down the coast of Maine - all focused on food and food culture. We're going to start at the Eastern most hot dog stand, Rosie's and bike south to Portsmouth.

Hoping to get your tips about where we should stop along the route. Lobster roll shacks are great, but we wouldn't mind spending a day fishing for Haddock, foraging, going to wineries, etc.

Thanks in advance!
Dan

  1. Rosey's is that the white house in Calais, with the fried peanuts?
    I assume. you're coming down 1 ? Tracey's in Sullivan, cheapest lobster rolls, lobster & great fried clams, ice cream & byob, so stop at Young's store, about 1 mi north. Ruth & Whimpies in Hancock for lobber, "Merican fud & desserts. Chester Pikes Galley, great breakfasts.
    Here's a post I did on Ellsworth:

    South of Ellsworth: Duffy's in E. Oreland; Just Barbs, Sandy Point; Angler's, Searsport, and when in Rockland, don't miss Cont's.
    If we were here, I'd invite you to stay, we do that w/ bicyclists peddling by.

      On Verona Island, going up the hill on the left is a place that serves breakfast all day. And lots in Belfast, Chases, The Coop, A wrap place, Darby's Pub and more...

        Yes, Passadumkeg is absolutely spot on with his rec: Belfast is an excellent town!
