This is a rebroadcast of an earlier show (original air date July 2, 2020); no calls will be taken.

Bicycle stores across Maine are struggling to keep up with demand for bikes and repairs as the era of social distancing has many Mainers turning to cycling as a way to enjoy the great outdoors safely.  We’ll learn about new bike trails under construction in Maine, tips on safe riding, bicycling maintenance and the rise of ebikes. We'll also discuss the Bicycle Coalition of Maine's new anti-speeding campaign, Slow ME Down, and it's five-year plan to increase safe biking communities throughout the state.
