I am excited to share my love of biking with people of all ages and abilities, as well of my love of this area. I have lived on Peaks Island in Portland for 20 years and have learned a great deal about the natural and cultural history that surrounds us here. Last year, my 16-year old son and I biked across the United Stated and we discovered that the world opens up around you while on a bike. It is a full sensory experience and you meet the kindest people!

This experience was incredible! I will say I got a good bit of exercise and worked up a sweat, but very easy to find the place, and the knowledge my guide had was incredible! I went with Twain, and along the way I was asking for some fun facts on the lighthouses for my mom, and Twain knew so much. I learned a lot and the trip is such a good price with all you see. Would recommend!

Leah was very friendly and offered to reschedule our tour when a nor’easter was heading in on the day we originally booked. The trail was a nice loop with a few small hills which ordinarily would not have been a problem but I seemed to be having trouble. I thought maybe I was just way more out of shape than I realized but it turned out the kickstand on my bike was rubbing against the tire so it was like having the brakes on for the whole ride. My legs were pretty much dead by the time we made it back. Other than that, it was a fun tour and I enjoyed visiting the lighthouses.

Had any amazing experience with Leah! We reserved our tour on our 2nd year anniversary and unfortunately it was a rainy day and we thought we wouldn’t be able to go anymore. Leah was accommodating and offered to give us a refund if we decided not to go, or allow us to still go if we were up for it. We ended up going despite the rain and Leah brought rain pants and jackets for us which was so kind! Such a great experience and definitely recommend!
