    Camden is a great little New England town where the mountains meet the sea. 1hr 45min from Portland and 3.5hr Boston. Very scenic, good food/drink, hiking, road biking, camping, state park, sailing, shopping etc. If you need to bring the family along for your mountain bike obsession, and they don't care to slay trails Camden is a good place for that :-) http://www.camdenme.org/

    Lot's of great local beer available at the stores and on tap.

    Local Brewery Andrew's Brew Co, in Lincolnville, will be on board for Saturday night festivities. Their beers can be found in bottles at stores and on tap at the pubs.

    Marshall Wharf Brewing nearby in Belfast, Maine has growlers to go! http://www.marshallwharf.com/

    Note that for many of you coming from the South this can also be combined with some riding at Southern Maine's premier single track zone Bradbury Mountain State Park.

    Just 5.5 miles drive off I-95 exit 22 Freeport/Durham will get you to this trail network allowing you to combine additional Maine riding to your trip. 20 miles of riding mostly single track.

    The weekend is a wrap. Hopefully good times were had by all. We're looking for some feedback on the event. What went well and where we can add, change, or improve to make it an even better weekend next year. Also looking for event photos if anyone would like to share.

    Thanks
