Thanks, Orono

I was a rider in the inaugural BikeMaine ride. I live north of Chicago, Ill. This was my first time in the state of Maine. The hospitality I received was overwhelming. I want to thank the community for hosting us. The young men and women who helped unload our luggage from our cars were so friendly and helpful. The kindness and friendliness of the people I met was heart warming.

Thank you to the high school, middle school and elementary school for opening your doors to us for camping, dinner and breakfast. Thank you to all the behind-the-scenes people who helped make our stay in Orono so enjoyable and to the bike mechanics for volunteering their time to fix any and all bike problems.

My experience was incredible. The memories I have of this trip and everyone involved will be with me forever.
