A group of bicyclists is planning a three-day, 135-mile ride to raise money for the Preble Street Resource Center and promote marriage equality.

Bike for Equality chose to support Preble Street to help replace funds pulled by Maine’s Roman Catholic Diocese after an organization affiliated with Preble Street supported the 2009 same-sex marriage campaign.

The ride will kick off at 8 a.m. June 16 at the Charlie Howard Memorial in Bangor and make stopovers in Winslow and Brunswick before arriving in Portland June 18.

Those interested in contributing can call 775-0026, ext. 110, or go to http://www.preblestreet.org/donate.php and dedicate the contribution to B4E. Those interested in volunteering can contact Kris Colford at 735-4009.
