KITTERY, Maine (NEWS CENTER) — The 350 cyclists who participated in BikeMaine this year got a nice warm welcome back in Kittery.They finished the ride in Fort Foster Park where it all started a week ago.
The cyclists rode about 350 miles over the past seven days. That’s about 55 miles per day.
Along the way, the riders visited Kittery, Old Orchard Beach, Bridgton, Bethel, Sweden and Kennebunk.
“We had the best weather, except for rain the first day, but even that was something that I’m glad I had to experience,” Mike Dunn said. “It was wonderful. I’m so glad I did it.”
Ross Healy, who lives on the West Coast, said he enjoyed his first trip to Maine.
“It was one of the best ways to come, check out the state, see a lot of cool stuff, a lot of local culture, and the ride was just beautiful,” he said.
The Bicycle Coalition of Maine, which puts on BikeMaine every year, has already announced the region where the ride will take place next year. It’ll be along the Bold Coast of Maine in Hancock and Washington counties.
