    Meeting and Pickup

    Meeting point

    • Bar Harbor, ME 04609, USA

      We will meet you in the parking lot at the visitor center and you can hop on an ebike with direct access to the carriage roads. We will meet you back at the starting point when you are finished. If you finish before the full rental period then there is a bike rack to lock your ebikes up.

    End point

    This activity ends back at the meeting point.

    What To Expect

    Acadia National Park is yours to explore at your own pace, speed, and preference from the moment you arrive at the Hull’s Cove visitor center. Connect directly to the carriage roads when you pick up your ebike.

    Your rental includes a few conveniences and necessities: a helmet for safety, basket for your belongings, bike lock for secure stops, and a cell phone holder so you can photograph wildlife before they sneak away.

    A lesson is also included before you speed off, but feel free to also ask questions about what you should see or which routes you should take. Park Loop Road is a popular destination, and with between 30 and 50 miles of power, you can explore this coastal landscape in full before returning to the visitor center.

    The perfect day.
    Mike_B, Apr 2024
    We were able to experience all of Acadia in a single day via cycle. Just a truly beautiful day. Marty was a great pleasure and did an excellent job at ebike introduction and operations.
    Carriage Trails on Ebikes through Acadia - Highly Recommend
    Eric_B, Oct 2023
    My wife and I rented e-bikes for 5 hours. The bikes were excellent, and we rode 25 miles and 33 miles respectively around the carriage trails. Battery life was great, and the ebikes made for an enjoyable ride even through 2,400 feet of elevation gain. My wife who hardly rides was able to enjoy the ride. It was an excellent way to see the park, and different parts that we hadn't explored yet.

    Beautiful scenery. Bikes and the carriage road trails were fabulous. Rode for the full time allotted and would do it again tomorrow.
    Wonderful Way to Explore Acadia NP
    Melyssa_R, Oct 2023
    I loved being able to ride the bikes on the carriage roads and not have to contend with cars. I felt safe and able to enjoy the ride. The Bubble Pond was my favorite area but the whole park is really beautiful. Rode past 4 really big turkeys… didn’t know what to expect but they moved to the side of the path and had no issues. The paths were wide and well kept. We were able to explore 35 miles of the park in the day (10am-3pm). These were class one E bikes so still a lot of peddling and a good workout. TIPS: I was able to purchase a vehicle pass at the Hulls Cove visitor center the morning of our ride. Be conservative with your battery and mindful of the time.
    Amazing time

    Amazing time. E-bike is a great way to enjoy the park, it was the high light of our trip. Highly recommend
    First Rate Experience
    Bob_H, Oct 2023
    The bikes and equipment were first rate. We had not been on a bike in years and the instructions on how to use bikes was first rate. The trip was filled with beautiful scenery…
    Kelly_W, Oct 2023
    Enjoyed the carriage roads. The Bike company did a nice job demonstrating how to ride the bike. I did feel that the map could be a little confusing. Overall this was an enjoyable activity.
    Great Adventure on E-Bikes!

    Once we got to the Park, Island Ebike made our Ebike rental experience simple, easy and fun! We had a super bike ride through Acadia National Park!
    Our amazing e biking experience in Acadia Nat Park
    Taylor_C, Oct 2023
    We spent a long weekend in Acadia national Park, and a biking through the park was by far the highlight of our trip. We were able to comfortably cover 30 miles of the park on our bikes, seeing Jordan pond, Eagle Lake, stopping at Jordan Pond house for lunch and popovers, and completing the mountain road loop all before having to return the bikes. It may seem like a pricey excursion, but was absolutely worth every penny. If you have to choose one excursion for your trip, don’t pass this experience up.
    Highlight of our trip
    Karen_S, Oct 2023
    This was the highlight of our trip to Bar Harbor. The e-bikes were in excellent condition, and they give you a map of the park to follow the paths on your own. In my opinion, it would be difficult to do the carriage roads without electric bikes. We are in average shape and we’re able to cover 26 miles in 5 hours.
    Carriage trail adventure
    Maura_N, Sep 2023
    Great trip! E-bikes helped us travel further and were simple and easy to use! Loved trail recommendations from shop employees and easy drop off/pick up!
    Excellent Experience
    Jennifer_B, Sep 2023
    Perfect way to explore Carriage Roads. Great rental company, very easy process from start to finish. E-bikes were comfy & allowed us to go about 3x’s the distance we could do if peddling ourselves.
    High Quality E-Bikes In Premier Pick Up Location
    Todd_G, Sep 2023
    Excellent service with top end Gazelle e-bikes. Easily the best quality e-bike I have ever found available as a rental. The cooler on the back rack is a nice extra. Biking the carriage roads is a must do activity when in Acadia National Park. Great to pick up the bikes at the visitor center rather than in town. Highly recommended!
    Must do in Acadia
    Brian_B, Sep 2023
    A great way to see a large area of the park by bike. The e-bikes are amazing and made short work of the bigger hills. Really enjoyable time without crowds and noise.
    My sister falling off of...
    Carolyn_S, Sep 2023
    My sister falling off of the bike. Definitely needed more details of how the bike works and how difficult it is to get up at the first ascend.
    Great Day
    Sheila_R, Aug 2023
    The carriage roads bring you by some beautiful lakes and places to take pictures. The rental bike meeting place was at the visitors center making it so easy to access the carriage roads. Riding e-bikes allowed everyone in our family to go on the same ride- some people used the e-bike power more than others but we all stayed together.
    Great experience!
    Glenn_F, Aug 2023
    Fantastic views! Around every bend. Bikes were easy to use. The staff members were very friendly and helpful they made it easy to enjoy. A great way to get around the park.
    Great experience
    Anne_F, Aug 2023
    We rented a bikes for the carriage paths in Acadia. What an amazing adventure. Ebikes are definitely the way to go to get around if you are used to riding 20miles a day. Bikes were in the lot waiting and the staff was there for pick up. Couldn't have been any easier! Staff was very nice!
    Great experience
    Ryan_P, Aug 2023
    Highly recommend this for anyone visiting Acadia. The eBikes were the way to see a lot and the rental experience was so easy and well done.
