PITTSFIELD – Bike Maine may only be five years old, but people know when it comes through their town, it means business.
That also means the towns the riders come through need to start planning now.
An eager group met in Pittsfield Tuesday evening to brainstorm ideas for when the riders set up camp on September 9th.
There were talks of a farmers market, a beer garden, and a special service on the morning of September 11th before the riders leave for their next stop.
Town officials are excited at what the town and the event have to offer each other.
Town Manager Kathrine Ruth said, “We’re able to promote it, sell our local wares, show off our local facilities, our historic buildings, and just our community spirit and our community friendliness.”
All 400 Bike Maine participation spots are filled, but every town involved is looking for volunteers to help support this massive, moving event.
The next step is to narrow down ideas and set events in stone.
