Who Could Argue With Pie?

We had a great ride last Saturday to Boothby's Apple Orchard and beyond - thanks to John Lanoue - and with the weather turning cooler and more Fall-like, we have more apples and another apple ride in store! This Saturday's ride will mark our return to the Monmouth Apple Festival, and the ride has been highlighted as part of the Maine Outdoor Coalition's Great Maine Outdoor Weekend which may bring the KVBC a bit more recognition. In any case, let's hope for good weather (and even better pie) and we'll see you Saturday!

Saturday, September 26th - WINTHROP
"Monmouth a la Mode" - a tour through Winthrop to the Monmouth Apple Festival.
START: 9:00 AM at the Winthrop Town Boat Landing on Maranacook Lake, near the gazebo on Coady Street, off of Memorial Drive. If the boat landing parking lot is full, there are additional spaces around the corner on Summer Street, lakeside.
DISTANCE: 18 or 24 Miles.
TERRAIN: Rolling, with a few stiff hills.
HIGHLIGHTS: Back roads beside rolling orchards, lakeside summer camps, small hidden hamlets... and the Monmouth Apple Festival: a great little small town festival devoted to celebrating all things pomological in one of Maine’s classic apple towns. The festival features lots of hot, baked apple pies and other apple treats, yard sales and open houses, fun and games, and self-guided tours of the Monmouth Historical Society’s many unique museum buildings and shops.
