Maine Bike Coalition Making Website of Cycle-Friendly Spots
The Bicycle Coalition of Maine is developing an online "Where to Ride Guide" that will seek to provide cyclists with a database of rides and destinations as well as bicycle-friendly businesses.
The Maine Office of Tourism is providing $10,000 toward the effort. The office says the guide will be a "responsive website" that helps cyclists find out where they can ride and what businesses cater to bike riders.
The grant is part of about $58,000 that the Maine Office of Tourism is giving to seven applicants as part of its Tourism Enterprise Marketing Grant program.(AP)
