What is BikeMaine’s purpose?

January 28, 2016 Comments Off on What is BikeMaine’s purpose?


Founded in 2012, BikeMaine is organized by the Bicycle Coalition of Maine, an advocacy group that has led the effort to make Maine better for biking and walking since 1992. BikeMaine was founded to promote the state as a bicycling destination and to use cycling as an economic development tool for local communities. Proceeds from the event support the Bicycle Coalition of Maine and its local cycling and pedestrian initiatives.

Following the completion of BikeMaine’s three-year start-up phase, BikeMaine awarded its first grant to a host community, a match grant in the amount of $12, 300 to the City of Gardiner, to spur local investment to complete a connector trail from downtown Gardiner to the Kennebec River Trail.
