Media cover Great Maine Bike Swap, Maine Bound Gear Sale

WABI (Channel 5), WLBZ (Channel 2) and WVII (Channel 7) reported on the Bicycle Coalition of Maine’s Great Maine Bike Swap and Maine Bound Adventure Center’s annual Gear Sale. The events were held at the New Balance Student Recreation Center at the University of Maine. Bike swap attendees could choose from hundreds of gently used bicycles, including hybrids, road bikes, mountain bikes, children’s bikes and recumbents at a variety of prices. During its annual sale, Maine Bound offered new and used gear for outdoor activities such as hiking, climbing, skiing, kayaking and cycling. “A lot of the stuff has been used by the Maine Bound program,” Kaitlyn Fowle, Maine Bound coordinator told WABI. “The Maine Bound program runs trips in whitewater rafting or rock climbing or ice climbing or skiing. It’s stuff we’ve moved out of the program so we can sell it to the public for pretty cheap.”
