BATH — The third annual Capital to Coast bike ride will take participants along Merrymeeting Bay, from Bath to Gardiner, on July 25.

Bicyclists will head north from Waterfront Park at 8:45 a.m., proceeding near the route of a proposed Capital to Coast Trail that would run off-road through West Bath, Brunswick, Topsham, Bowdoinham, Richmond and Gardiner.

The ride offers two distance options: A 26-mile version goes to Richmond, where Richmond Days is being celebrated, and a 37-mile trip continues on to Waterfront Park in Gardiner.

The pace is expected to be 10-12 mph, with frequent resting stops. Experienced and novice bikers alike are welcome.
