(NEWS CENTER) — The Bicycle Coalition of Maine has announced the route for its 2015 BikeMaine ride.
The host communities will be Kittery, Old Orchard Beach, Bridgton, Bethel, Sweden and Kennebunk. The Bicycle Coalition of Maine estimates that last year’s event had a direct economic impact in Maine of $395,000. The 350-mile ride is open to 350 cyclists and even though the event is several months away, organizers said it’s time to get on the bike and start preparing.
“You know now is the time to start training. We really do recommend riders do train before riding this ride. I think a casual cyclist with a good preparation can ride BikeMaine…but there’s no better time to jump on the trainer than now with all this snow on the ground,” Brian Allenby.
The event starts on Sept. 12 and continues through the 19.
