Biking in Maine: Where To Go, What To Buy, Bicycling Safety & Sharing the Road
Biking has always been big in Maine, but the pandemic has led to a significant rise in enthusiasm for biking throughout the state. We’ll discuss how the pandemic continues to impact the availability of new bikes, and we’ll talk about how to get your bike ready to ride. We’ll also learn about bike safety, sharing the road—and initiatives before the Maine legislature related to bike safety. We’ll even ride into the newest trend in cycling—electric-assist bicycles!
