Kennebunkport Loop – 40 Mile Maine Seacoast Ramble
This is as pretty and easy a ride as you will find anywhere on the East Coast. It wanders along a beautiful piece of the Maine seacoast through the historic towns of Arundel, Goose Rocks, Cape Porpoise, Biddeford Pool, and Kennebunkport. My favorite Lobster Pound, Nunan’s is on this ride.
Route Map – See End of Article for Cue Sheet and Map
Nunan’s Lobster Pound, Cape Porpoise, ME
You’ll ride past Walker’s Point, the Bush’s summer home, the Trolley Museum, Rocky Points, and Sandy Beaches. This is a great summer ride because it is cooled by an ocean breeze and shaded by overhanging trees.
Cape Porpoise Harbor
I start in my favorite Maine Campground, the Shamrock RV Park on West Road in Biddeford, Maine. This is a friendly campground that always has a place for another bicycle tourist. They have dedicated tent sites by the pond and a swimming pool. They don’t even charge for hot water in the showers, a bicycling luxury.
Church, Kennebunkport, ME
From there we ride by the University of New England to Biddeford Pool. Then on to Fortune Rocks, a pretty sand beach guarded by large rocks.
Now you continue back to Route 9 and then to Goose Rocks. This little town is famous for it’s now burnt down Resort. It has a beautiful beach and scenic homes.
Walker’s Point, Bush Compond
As you follow Route 9 to Kennebunkport, there are several pull outs where you can get a good look at Walker’s Point, the Bush Summer Home.
Arundel Yacht Club, Kennebunkport, ME
As you approach Kennebunkport, you will see the Arundel Yacth Club. This is a great place to stop and view the harbor before you get into the bustle of Kennebunkport.
Kennebunkport is a great place to stop for a break. This pretty seacoast town has lots of little places to enjoy coffee and a pastry or find a light or not so light lunch.
After you leave town, take a right onto Beech Ave by the lights after the bridge. This will take you to Kennebunk Beach another beautiful Maine Beach.
Kennebunk Beach Road
From here we will wander back to Arundel past the Playhouse and then to the campground. These roads will take you away from the traffic of Kennebunkport for a quiet ride through historic Maine farmland.
