Advocacy in Action
BCM are your advocates for bike and pedestrian issues in our state including education, safety, environment, accessibility, and infrastructure. See what current bills we are prioritizing, and learn how you can become involved through submitting testimony and reaching out to your state senators and representatives.
The Bicycle Coalition of Maine’s Portland staff are operating on a hybrid remote schedule. 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!
The Bicycle Coalition of Maine is committing to advancing our equity and inclusion efforts. The Coalition is prioritizing diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) in three focus areas: self-education, community engagement/outreach, and event structure for 2022-2023. We welcome community members and visitors of Maine—Wabanaki Territory—from all backgrounds to join the Coalition. Our most outstanding achievement will be that everyone who joins the Coalition or attends our events will feel respected and valued.
