The Bicycle Coalition of Maine is launching a weeklong ride that will cover 400 miles through inland and coastal communities. The event, called BikeMaine, will start and end in Orono and include overnight stops in Dover-Foxcroft, Belfast, Castine, Bar Harbor, and Ellsworth. Riders will pedal 60 to 75 miles a day. The inaugural ride from Sept. 7-14 will be limited to 350 riders, but the organization hopes to increase that number in time to 2,000 participants. The cost is $875, which includes meals, beverages, and snacks, baggage transport, mechanical and medical support, and campsites. More information is available on the coalition’s website, www.bikemaine.org.
