It’s Back-to-School Season!
Ready for the 2021-2022 school year? Classes are in session year-round at the BCM, with in-person bicycle rodeos, “Fix-A-Bike” mechanic sessions, and other presentations for kids, as well as urban riding and mountain bike classes for teens and adults. Looking for at-home education, instructional videos, or printable handouts? We have all that, too!
COVID-19 UPDATE: The Bicycle Coalition of Maine has re-opened our Portland office, but we ask that visitors make an appointment via email before stopping by, and please wear masks inside the office. We look forward to seeing you all soon!
Slow ME Down
Speeding endangers cyclists, pedestrians, and drivers. Even small increases in speed increase the lethality of a crash with a vulnerable user, and speed affects everything from how fast a car can stop to how quickly a moment of distraction becomes a disaster. Learn more and sign our Slow ME Down letter of support here.
