Lobster bake tables

The Festival includes 3 nights accommodations, 2.5 days of guided biking , instruction for novices, 5 gourmet meals, and handcrafted delicious Maine craft brews from the likes of Liquid Riot, Lone Pine, and Bissell Brothers. Expect energy packed, delicious gourmet breakfasts and lunches. All will include Cliff’s specialties like homemade waffles, muffins and granola . Also hand-crafted Black Bean Sweet Potato Chili and Black Bean Vegetable Chicken Burritos. Glutten Free? No problem. And let Cliff show you his garden as a lot of food he serves, he grows onsite. In addition there will be a huge Lobsterbake cook out around the campfire. Entertainment will include touring world-class musicians both Friday and Saturday nights. Mountain bikes are available and, for the novices, Cliffs amazing instruction skill clinic which is rated to be the best in the country. And also for novices there are trails appropriately challenging but not beating you up . Daily two guided rides grouped by skill level are provided and if you want to skip a ride we offer kayaks and tubes for chillaxing on the clear shallow waters of the famous Long Pond.


 After spending the day adventuring, unwind at the cozy mountain lodge compound, wood-fired hot tub and  top beers from Maine renound Lone Pine, Bissell Brothers, liquid Riot to name a few. Enjoy live music each night from touring musicians playing music that pairs perfectly with an idyllic outdoor setting. Highly talented musicians and artists from all around the USA and abroad will be performing Friday and Saturday evenings in the yurt or the deck behind the lodge.
