BIDDEFORD, Maine — Biddeford has been chosen to be the site for the annual Maine Bike Rally in 2012 and again in 2013.
The 24th annual rally will take place from July 6-8. The event is sponsored by the Casco Bay Bicycle Club, the Merrymeeting Wheelers Bicycle Club and the Bicycle Coalition of Maine.
The event regularly draws about 300 people from around Maine and elsewhere who can choose from more than 30 rides that vary in length from 5 miles to 100 miles. The 2010 and 2011 rallies were held in Brunswick.
Rally organizers tell the Journal Tribune of Biddeford that on-site camping and several meals will be provided at the middle school in Biddeford. There’ll also be a bike expo, an ice cream social and musical entertainment.
