PEDAL ON | FIND A SWEET RIDE AT GREAT MAINE BIKE SWAPS IN ORONO AND PORTLAND
By: Karen Beaudoin
OK. OK. So parts of Maine got dumped on with something like 20 inches of snow last week. So your favorite trail is still buried under layers of crusty white stuff. So you still have to navigate over and around patches of ice wherever you go. So. Despite the lingering cold, ice and snow, cycling season is just around the corner. Really.
I know this because the Bicycle Coalition of Maine has begun promoting its Great Maine Bike Swaps. Your chance to swap out some old wheels for ones that are newer – or maybe just different – comes from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on April 13 in Orono and April 27 in Portland. Up for grabs will be road bikes, mountain bikes, kids bikes and hybrids. Find a sweet ride at the BCM Bike Swaps.
