KITTERY, Maine (NEWS CENTER) — More than 350 cyclists are preparing for the first leg of BikeMaine set to begin on Sunday.
This year’s week-long tour is expected be the biggest one yet. The Bicycle Coalition of Maine estimates that last year’s event had a direct economic impact in Maine of $395,000.
Over the course of their adventure, cyclists will pedal more than 50 miles a day, throughout southern and western Maine. Along the way they will enjoy locally-sourced foods like Maine seafood and fresh-from-the-farm produce at every meal. At night they will camp at host communities including Kittery, Old Orchard Beach, Bath, Sweden and Kennebunk.
