Events for March 25, 2023
The Bicycle Coalition of Maine stays busy with events all year round to connect with as many pedestrians and people on bikes as possible 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 bike/ped 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 and those hosted by our partners and supporters. Check it out, and join us as we strive to make Maine better for biking and walking!
Wednesday Webinar: Rob Lavoie & the Gorham Trailsvirtual
Rob is the former President of the Greater Portland NEMBA Chapter, a trail builder and now Gorham City Council Member. He was also one of the minds behind building the Gorham trail system and the pump track namesake (not his choice). We talk with Rob about what inspired him and others to make trails in their town, and what it took to make it happen!
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.
