The volunteer crew from Katahdin Middle High School joined BikeMaine for the third year as the tent and porter crew. The BikeMaine event travelled from the Kennebec Valley to Mid-coast Maine for seven days. Chaperones, CariLynn Hanson, Patty Sponheimer, and Tyler Morin helped students dismantle and reconstruct tents at the new site each morning. Each afternoon, the crew had the opportunity to learn about the history of the area, including a journey on a schooner out of Portland and a meet and greet with Bill Green.
Recently, Bicycle Coalition of Maine released a report showing that BikeMaine 2019: Coastal Connections' total economic impact was $906,000. Where's BikeMaine 2020? The Katahdin Region!!! The students of the Katahdin Learning Project, who have been an integral part of BikeMaine for three years now, can't wait to help welcome cyclists from near and far to this special part of Maine!
