Michael Casey of New York City approaches the finish line Sunday during the 29th Annual Bike MS: Great Maine Getaway in Biddeford. Volunteers placed 3,000 orange flags near the finish line to represent each person in Maine with multiple sclerosis. More than 380 cyclists rode 25, 50 or 75 miles with a goal of raising $350,000. When the riders returned, a lobster bake and cookout awaited them at the University of New England, where the ride began and ended.
