Back during the summer days of riding in riding in short-sleeved jerseys past blooming fields and lush green trees, I wrote a column about the Bicycle Coalition of Maine's new ride, BikeMaine. In July, the inaugural event seemed a long way off. That's no longer the case.

BikeMaine's Ride Committee recently announced that the route for this cross-Maine ride will be announced on Feb. 6, 2013. Registration starts Feb. 13 (Coalition members will get early access on Feb. 12) and the plan is to limit the debut event to 350 riders. Half of those slots will be reserved for riders from out of state.

All that said, if you want in, be sure to mark Feb. 13 on every calendar you can find. Or make a New Year's resolution to join the BCM's Yellow Jersey Club, then commit to riding in BikeMaine by Feb. 6, and you're guaranteed a slot in the historic first ride.
