Paranormal Pedal

Paranormal Pedal

 

The Paranormal Pedal e-bike tour is the perfect way to get up close and personal with the Boothbay region’s mysterious side and discover why it’s chock full of ghosts, mysterious creatures, and UFOs – oh my! You will enjoy stunning ocean views as we ride along historic Boothbay byways leading to some truly mysterious locations, including Pirates Cove, a forested log cabin village and America’s longest wooden footbridge. A haunting highlight includes a visit inside the iconic Spruce Point Inn, host to the Kennedys, Ernest Hemingway, and more than its fair share of ghosts!

We ride throughout the harbor’s east side along the Linekin Bay coastline, through the pine-scented Sprucewold forest, and enjoy picturesque harbor views of Boothbay Harbor’s working waterfront.
