All weekly scheduled MCC group rides have been cancelled until further notice. Additionally, the MCC Spring Social has been cancelled.
Here's our thoughts on cycling during the COVID-19 crisis:
The State of Maine's most recent position is that exercise such as walking, hiking and biking are all essential activities that should continue as long as social distancing can be maintained. We recommend that you continue to ride your bikes outside, but not in groups. Trying to maintain social distance on a ride with others is nearly impossible in practice. Even at 12 feet apart, you will likely be dispersing sweat and breath droplets to anyone behind or beside you. It's just not worth the risk!
If you wish to get out of the house and get some exercise then head out solo and exercise caution, remember that there is still traffic on the road. If you wish to ride with friends, there are products and services available that allow you to recreate a group ride indoors. Talk to your local bike shop about all the indoor and virtual training options available.

With the change in the calendar from 2019 to 2020 and the sight of spring on the horizon, the Maine Cycling Club group changes are beginning to take shape and some exciting announcements here for you.

The first great announcement for 2020 is the possible addition of a Friday Morning Ride from the Lewiston/Auburn Municipal Airport parking lot.

The next announcement is that regularly scheduled group rides will get a little later start this year to avoid our recent run-in with poor weather in April.  So, we'll be starting regular group rides on Monday, May 4th.

The Maine Cycling Club is a proud partner of the Dempsey Challenge, and again for 2019 we brought back the Maine Cycling Club Dempsey Challenge Team!

The participants of the Maine Cycling Club Dempsey Challenge Team raised over $8000.00 again.

Stay tuned here or at the Dempsey Challenge Support page for 2020 registration information and help the Maine Cycling Club Dempsey Challenge Team to reach new heights in the fight to support those battling cancer!
