Share the road

The 40th annual bicycling event, Trek Across Maine by the American Lung Association, will go through Gorham Sunday, June 16. As many as 800 to 1,000 bicyclists are expected to come through Maine communities.

In Gorham, the bicyclists will travel along Standish Neck and North Gorham roads.

“Citizens are asked for their support, patience and extra care with slowing down and sharing the road as the cyclists make their way through Gorham,” the town wrote in an announcement online.
