The Bicycle Coalition of Maine moved into its new office in Portland on the same weekend as that first February storm - you know, the one now known as the Blizzard of 2013.
So cut the non-profit a little slack for waiting for nicer weather before propping open the doors for an open house. The BCM folks are now ready to welcome members and others interested in cycling to their digs at 34 Preble St. for an open house on Wednesday, March 20 from 4 to 6 p.m.
Expect the office warming to also include the drawing of the 2013 Super Raffle, light refreshments and libations from the friendly folks at nearby Shipyard.
If you haven't yet bought a ticket for the Super Raffle, you can do so here. Prizes include a bicycle trip to Europe, a Trek road bike, a Specialized Body Geometry fitting, a Thule rack and a CycleOps trainer.
