The City of Belfast will play host to 500+ bicyclists and volunteers as part of the 7th Annual BikeMaine event. Riders will camp for two nights at Steamboat Landing Park along the Belfast Waterfront from September 12 - 14. This is the second time in BikeMaine?s history that Belfast will host riders. The event is designed to promote Maine as a bicycling destination and to bring new focus, attention, and dollars to the regions it passes through. Proceeds from the event support BikeMaine host communities and the Bicycle Coalition of Maine?s cycling and pedestrian initiatives.
Local businesses should expect to see these riders downtown on Thursday and Friday afternoon. Each evening entertainment will be offered on the Belfast Commons weather permitting. Thursday night Waterfall Arts brings the Maine Outdoor Film Festival and on Friday night The Leaky Boot Jug Band will perform. Both events are open to the public.
