      Hello

      Thanks for posting. I'm in Biddeford and have a very busy work and family life, but might be interested. I have a lot of limitations and my riding skills aren't good, but I'd like to improve.

              Anyway, congratulations for riding this and hope your seating area was not a tuna melt by the end of the third day

                I noticed the unicyclemaine.org web site was down for several days
                But, I see now that it's back up
                I'm wondering, how much interest there has been? I know that several decades ago, there were about 6 or 8 riders in the Biddeford, Maine area. We (myself included) rode in the LaKermese festival parade back then. Fast forward a few decades, I haven't seen anyone. I usually just ride 2 or 3 miles in the afternoon on the streets in my neighborhood, but would like to become proficient enough to try some "easy" off road trails - if I could find some.
                So far, I've been focusing on basic riding and even avoiding freemounting unless its my 20". I usually find something to lean on to mount up and I'm okay once I start riding. At 60 years old I have to be super careful because I've come to realize that I'm now among the stuff that breaks easily
                What type of weekend rides currently exist, and where (and when)? It would be nice to find other interested riders in the local area.

                  Hi Maine folks, just noticed this and wanted to bump / put in my two chicadees.

                  I'm up in Bangor, so probably out of range for most greater Portland rides, but if anyone else is up here (or Orono, Old Town, etc.) give a shout. I usually ride in Bangor City Forest and environs, xc-ish dirt roads or light muni on the easier trails. That area is popular with the MTB set, but I've never seen a uni there.
