We had some great early Fall weather this past weekend, which saw several groups of our riders take part in the Maine Lighthouse Ride on the coast, and Pedal the Penobscot up in Bangor. Looks like the BikeMaine riders will benefit from fine wether as they make their way though our part of Maine. If you are volunteering or see them on the road, give them a warm welcome! This week's ride will really kick off our Fall season, as Larry takes us over the back roads from Farmington to Industry. Hope you can join us!
