Today a small group of members installed a bridge on Hayden's trail in the riding area we all call "the Bog" The bridge is on land belonging to Bangor Land Trust and built using Penobscot NEMBA funds. We have a lot "in the works" with The Bangor Land Trust. We are very excited about the future! Our next bridge project is Ianazzi Trail and it will be a very substantial build. Big thank you goes out to Aaron Brasslett who secured a grant for both projects with Kleinschmidt Associates...

Greendrinks: Bikes, Burritos, Beer
November 14, 2017, 5:00pm - November 14, 2017, 8:00pm
This November 14th, Greendrinks is heading back to Verve in Bangor with cohosts Bicycle Coalition of Maine and Walk-n-Roll! Come join us for an incredible selection of beer, featuring Orono Brewing Company and so much delicious food from Verve.
We'll help the Bike Coalition and Walk-N-Roll kick off their Bike Brightly campaign, where members of Walk-N-Roll give out free bike lights to unlit riders during the darkest part of the year.
As always, Greendrinks is a free family-friendly event, so bring the kiddos! There is a suggested $5 donation, and we ask that you bring your own drinking vessel. If you forget, we'll have compostable cups available for $1, and custom glassware for $5. Proceeds from the event go toward helping Bangor Greendrinks provide grants to fund worthy projects that help make Bangor greener. See you there!
