From pedaling across Maine to keeping keys safe

PEDAL ACROSS THE PINE TREE STATE

Start preparing for a 400-mile group bike ride across Maine this September. BikeMaine, run by the 5,000-member Bicycle Coalition of Maine, takes place for the first time Sept. 7-14. Up to 350 riders will bike 60 to 75 miles a day, as they complete a circular loop from Orono that rolls through Dover-Foxcroft, Belfast, Castine, Bar Harbor, and Ellsworth. Riders will camp in less-visited rural communities and dine on local cuisine along the way. Price: $875 per person, includes a lobster bake and most other meals, camping accommodations, and bike support. A portion of registration fees benefits children’s health, education, and sports programs, and several community groups along the route. 207-623-4511, www.bikemaine.org/events/bikemaine
