The Town of Lincoln is hosting the Bicycle Coalition of Maine's BikeMaine Weekend on August 26-28, 2022! The three-day event will feature two different routes each day—both short (30-35 miles) and long (50-55 miles) options—as well as four catered meals, fully stocked rest stops, and route support that includes maps, signage, SAG vehicles, and mechanical and medical assistance. The BikeMaine Village will make its return in 2022, complete with on-site camping, nightly entertainment, and a Maine Beer Company beer garden. The Village will encompass both Cobb Field—the waterfront greenspace belonging to Mattanawcook Junior High School—and nearby Prince Thomas Park.

BikeMaine was previously a weeklong event, but a truncated version was introduced in 2021 due to the ongoing pandemic. “We also hope a shorter, more accessible, and more affordable event will appeal to a wider ridership,” BCM Event Manager Emily Lozeau says. “It’s one example of our ongoing commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion.”
