Bike Ogunquit!

Every time I see an adult on a bicycle, I no longer despair for the future of the human race.

Bicycles are everywhere in Ogunquit!  The Ogunquit Police use bicycles to patrol the streets. Bread & Roses Bakery uses a bicycle to deliver lunch, and pies. Seasonal workers use bikes to get to and from work, and people cycle for enjoyment. There are some days that Ogunquit looks like a little Amsterdam-by-the-Sea with all the bikes! It is truly the greening of Ogunquit!

I needed a bike rack for the Ogunquit Beach Inn. I could not find anything decent. The bike racks that I saw on-line were cheesy and flimsy looking. So I talked to Rob at Hut Sixty-6. Rob said he could make a  bike rack that would fit with the theme of my craftsman B&B.

Hut Sixty-6 Cyclery is the local bike shop. The shop rents and services bikes. Rob is a bit of a renaissance man. He re-builds and restores classic bikes from yesteryear. He literally brings old bikes back to life. Its truly a pleasure to visit his shop. My guests at the Inn enjoy renting bikes and going for day trips on the southern Maine Coast. A favorite ride is down Shore Road to the Nubble Lighthouse. Another favorite ride is to Mt Agamenticus which is onky 7 miles from the Inn.
