French Acadian Randonnée of Maine Farm ride. Where the pavement, gravel and cultures meet in what is considered a truly epic day of cycling. The tradition of the randonnée continues in this classic cycling adventure. Not a race, but a ride amongst fellow companions, cycle through farmlands, maple tree stands and undulating hills of northern Maine, western New Brunswick and Quebec Canada.
