> With fairly minimal marketing and a complete oversight by the mainstream
> media, we still managed to have 500 bicyclists take advantage of the
> VALET BIKE PARKING at OPSail last weekend. A tall of surveys indicate
> that collectively these folks biked just over 5,000 miles making a great
> dent in relieving traffic congestion during this one-time event. Many
> many more bicyclists were at OPSail choosing to park elsewhere or just
> cruising through the massive crowds. Major thanks to all the excellent
> volunteers who helped out with an extra tip of the hat to Fred Robie for
> all his energy and organizing, and Bruce Hyman and Maggie Guthrie for an
> amazing amount of work over several days! Others who helped include
> Ellen Brown, Catherine Harman, Bruce Wakefield, John Hoy, Charley
> LaFlamme, Ken O'Brien, Elizabeth Patten, and Maggie Warren -- thank you
> all! And thanks too to Portland Yacht Services for lending us the space
> which worked out beautifully.

> The Public Service Announcements (PSAs) are all out to the Television
> Stations and Cable Providers. In a few weeks we hope to also have the

> Copies of all four PSAs are now available on VHS cassette for $5. If you

> In a few weeks the BCM is hosting a TIME TRIAL BIKE RACE in Hinckley
> Maine. This will be the Third Annual Hinckley Time Trial with
> sponsorship from Skowhegan Savings Bank and Sappi. Some flyers have been
> mailed out today to previously identified bike racers. If you would like
> a copy of the flyer and registration form please e-mail Jeff at

> The International Mountain Bike Association's (IMBA) TRAIL CARE CREW is
> in Maine again, making a couple of appearances in Maine. If you are
> interested in learning about how to do proper trail maintenance or
> construction, these folks are THE experts. If you feel like picking up a
> shovel, grabbing a rake or just talking over mountain bike access &
> policies, then you should join them on Friday from 9-3 at Bradbury
> Mountain State Park or on Saturday from 9-2 at Wolfe Neck Farm. For more
> info you can call Fred Robie at 865-6978.

> There is a new ride listing below as well as several important public
