May is National Bike Month and, as usual, the folks at Gorham Bike and Ski are getting geared up for the season. Once again the Congress Street shop will be hosting the annual Girls and Gears event Friday from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.

Admission is just $12 and when you sign up online 100 percent of that money will go to the Maine Cancer Foundation.

The evening will be hosted by Q97.9 morning show personality Lori Voornas and includes a cycling-wear fashion show, massages, food, drinks and plenty of info on bikes and biking. Also expect giveaways, a raffle (must be present to win) and special deals on women's items.

The first 100 ladies to sign up online will receive a free T-shirt. But you don't have to sign up in advance. If you decide to drop in at the last minute you can do so by paying $15 at the door.

And guys ... stay home for this one. You know you don't want to get between a girl and her bike.
