Great Portland Bike Swap Set for April 29, 2012

The Bicycle Coalition of Maine’s Great Portland Bike Swap will come to the University of Southern Maine’s Sullivan Gym on April 29, 2012 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.  The swap offers a way for people to buy affordable, used bicycles and/or to sell bicycles that they no longer need. 

Hundreds of bicycles of all types will be for sale, including mountain bikes, road bikes, classic cruisers, kids’ bikes and hybrids.  A large test riding area will allow shoppers to try out bicycles.  Volunteer advisors will be on hand to help with pricing and bike fit.

Maine State Parks Offer New Year’s Fun with Four “First Day Hikes”

Maine State Parks Offer New Year’s Fun with Four “First Day Hikes”

New Year’s revelers will get the chance this year to welcome in 2012 in a new way, with four guided “First Day Hikes” sponsored by the Maine Bureau of Parks and Lands (BPL), under the Maine Department of Conservation.

Maine state parks are joining a nationwide initiative among all 50 states to offer “First Day Hikes” as way for individuals and families to connect with great outdoor fun and to create special, holiday memories. The Jan. 1 hikes mark the first time all U.S. state park systems have joined together to sponsor the event.

As part of the initiative, four easy and fun “First Day Hikes,” led by park staff at four different Maine state parks, will take place on Sunday, Jan. 1. All the hikes are free – in fact, no admission will be charged at any open Maine state park on New Year’s Day.

“What a great way to start the New Year – outside at Maine state parks!” said Will Harris, BPL director.
