Fast Bike Ride Down Cadillac Mountain – Acadia National Park

Posted by on in Races & Rides


Rode my bike down from the top of Cadillac Mountain in Acadia National Park near Bar Harbor Maine. There is a slight uphill at the beginning, then the full-on downhill starts ate about 1:08. I may have been exceeding the speed limit slightly. This was on my homemade cyclocross/gravel bike with CX tires. I would have loved to have had my road bike with race tires. Maybe next time. Not knowing the corners, I actually took it relatively easy, not wanting to fly off the side of the mountain. The video was shot with my Sony point and shoot camera taped to the handlebars with electrical tape. LOL!
BTW, I know my top speed and I am taking the 5th.
FYI, I did this at 8:30am. They recommend cyclists who want to ride the mountain come early in the morning or later in the day when car traffic is light.
