    Trails near Ogunquit Maine?

    Family trip to your coast (from MN) in Aug. Seeking any mountain bike trails that are worthy within an hour drive of SE Maine/ Ogunquit.

    Thanks for any sort of info...

    I'll even take some gravel or 2 track remote riding as well around Ogunquit...

    Seeking MTB rental as well. A good shop that knows what they are doing is worth a good tip in the tip jar.

    Mt. Agamenticus, aka Aggie or Mt. A, is close by in York and is very good. Search will find you info, have "Toddski" give you a tour. Self-navigation is not easy.

    Smith Preserve in Kennebunk is worth a visit. Small but easy navigation with excellent signage and/or using Maprika.

    Lots of other places within an hour too. Fort Rock (Exeter, NH) lives up to its name and has a bike shop within pedaling distance (I think).

    Cheers

    Bike Shop... Help?

    Thanks for the info.

    How about a good quality bikeshop rental in the area?

    Again, a good shop is worth a good tip in the tip jar...

    Finding a decent ride the rent may be my biggest challange. Plenty of board walk hybrid tourist bikes/ even with suspension. Ya right...

    I grew up riding there, usually hit it 5 or 6 times in the summer. I would gladly give you a good tour when you come out. Always looking for excuses to get back to Aggie, that place is really good, stuff. As far as the rentals go, you can call ahead at Bretons Bike. I don't know what they rent, but if you call ahead they would work something out for you. I have extra Niner hard tail or two in the garage , I can set you up on for a ride. Good luck, enjoy your stay and don't have too many rum punches at Barnicle Billy's. those will mess you up.

    Radair/ AllvinF- Thanks for your pointers... Starting to decode your trails... City trails in Portland worthy? Trails between Boston and Ogunquit?

    STILL SEEKING A LOCAL BIKE RENTAL. Not looking for the touristy type setup. Which shops are real?

    Alvinnf, thanks for loaner offer. Willing to rent for 5 days in mid Aug? I'll put down advance as to not bring you back scrap metal.

    Also, do you guys have a local MTB race series going happening?

    Thanks from Minnesnowta where fatbikes are legit...

    There are trails that go from Ogunquit to Mt. Agamenticus, if I am available in August I can help you out. Honestly, traffic is so horrible that time of year, I would just maximize family time & ride time by concentrating on Aggie, you'll never be able to ride it all. Wheels & Waves might have "real" mtn bikes to rent, I don't know what they have.

    Mt Aggie and Fort Rock. Got it. Both look worthy and should satisfy a bike junkies ability to get lost in the woods on a family tourist trip to Maine.

    Still looking for a local bike shop with quality MTB rentals and knowledge of the trails and riding.

    Couple shops I have targeted;
    Riverside Cycle- what do they have for rentals? (Newburyport MA), Papawheelies- Specialized brand (Portsmouth NH)
    Wheels & Waves- what do they have for rentals?

    Thanks again locals...

    Seems you guys are on to the fatbike thing... Drop the air and ride on.

    Also, u really can get lost at Aggie and it is hard to find the good stuff at times so get a guide or join a group ride. Exeter and smith preserve are easy to navigate.

    Am clueless on bike rentals, but know this well - Saturday traffic is frustrating due to weekly rentals where checkout is 11AM - check in is 3 PM. Other than on route 1, any other day is doable.
    For shop rides check Cape Able in K-port, if in Portland - All Speed.
    Also you may want to try these - Bradbury State Park, Robinson Woods, Lowell Preserve.

    If near Portland, hit these guys for local rides, and maps.
