WINTER HARBOR — Toting plates of lasagna, salad and garlic bread followed by apple crisp, 400 bicyclists settled onto the ball field at the Schoodic Institute Sept. 10 before burrowing into their colorful tents for the night.

The bicyclists and dozens of support staff are participating in the fourth annual BikeMaine ride sponsored by the Bicycle Coalition of Maine.

The Bicycle Coalition of Maine is a nonprofit with more than 5,000 members. Its mission is to make the state a better place for bicyclists.

Mark Berry, president of the Schoodic Institute at Acadia National Park, said the healthy, outdoor recreation is a nice way to showcase what the area in general, and the Schoodic Peninsula in particular, has to offer.

“Downeast Maine is an extraordinary place with a uniquely valuable natural landscape and attractive communities,” he said.

BikeMaine is the largest seven-day ride in the Northeast and is modeled after successful rides in other parts of the country.
