Events for May 19, 2021

The Bicycle Coalition of Maine stays busy with events all year round. Our goal is to connect with as many cyclists and pedestrians as possible, and we do that in a variety of ways. We seek to educate adults and children about bike/ped safety through presentations and courses, host interactive demonstrations that advocate for improvements to bicycle and pedestrian infrastructure, provide valet bike parking at local events and organize gatherings and group rides to raise awareness and enthusiasm about our mission. The event calendar below lists our upcoming events in addition those being hosted by our partners and supporters. Check it out, and join us as we strive to make Maine better for biking and walking!
