Our view on Environmental Sustainability

The Bicycle Coalition of Maine believes that engaging in bicycling and walking are two simple ways that we can reduce our impact on the planet.

revisionThe use of sustainable and active transportation reduces our dependence on fossil fuels and minimizes the cumulative impact on our natural environment.  When people choose to bike or walk, they make a decision that is healthier for themselves, their community, and the environment.

To this end, we have enlisted the support of our sustainability partner Revision Energy to help quantify and reduce our environmental footprint, all while educating and engaging our members, event attendees and community about how they can do their part as well.
