Most of the group fundraising rides in Maine went by earlier in the season, but there's still a great ride coming up Saturday. Unfortunately, it's sold out.

Having ridden in the 2012 Maine Lighthouse Ride hosted by the Eastern Trail Alliance I 'm not surprised that the event hit its limit of 1,000 participants.

The 40-mile ride starts at Southern Maine Community College at 8 a.m. and includes eight lighthouses. That's the route I'd suggest but you can also choose a century ride (7 a.m.; 9 lighthouses), 62-mile ride (7:30 a.m.; 8 lighthouses) or a 25-mile ride (8:30 a.m.; 7 lighthouses).

The 40-miler takes you along parts of the dirt-covered Eastern Trail and into the Scarborough Marsh. There are also stops at Ferry Beach ion Scarborough and Kettle Cove in Cape Elizabeth. You'll ride out around the Black Point Inn and also into Fort Williams Park. 

The route's pretty flat so you can easily complete it even if you're training has tapered off in the latter part of the summer.
