Those in the know in Maine's bicycle community are waiting and watching to find out how federal cuts will affect the state's degree of bike (and pedestrian) friendliness.
A bill approved by Congress call for cuts for bike and pedestrian safety programs to be cut by around 30 percent.
There's no telling yet whether that national figure will hold true in Maine but an official from the Bicycle Coalition of Maine expects the state's number of bike and pedestrian projects to drop. Voters in a PressHerald.com poll Friday disagreed by a 57 percent to 43 percent margin.Tweet
