A bike ride and free food anyone? (Lisa Toste)

Join in the 10th annual Tour de Merrymeeting Bay Bike Ride on Saturday, August 3rd, to benefit Topsham's new Head of Tide Park, which is being developed on Cathance Road in stages by the Town. All riders will receive a free T-shirt and BBQ after the ride!

The bike ride provides two options: A 50 mile loop route around Merrymeeting Bay and the lower reaches of Androscoggin and Kennebec Rivers; and a 25 mile 'Bowdoinham and Back' route for cycling families and less experienced riders. Both rides will begin at the Foreside Recreation Fields in Topsham. The longer ride starts at 8:00 a.m. (registration at 7:00) and the shorter ride starts at 10:00 a.m. (registration at 9:00). The rides are fully supported with maps, road markings, refreshments, bike mechanics and radio marshals.

For more information about the ride or how to volunteer go to http://www.topshammaine.com/tmb or call 729-7694. Come and join in the fun!!
