Bicycle time trial
To the Editor:
Bethel Bicycle and Western Maine Velo Club will be hosting a bicycle time trial on Sunday July 28 starting at 9 a.m.
Registration will begin at 8 a.m. at the Gould field house. This will be part of the Maine Time Trial Series.
The race route starts in Bethel on Railroad Street, proceeds west onto Route 2. It follows Route 2 until Gilead where it crosses the bridge over the Androscoggin River and turns back east onto North road. It follows North road until the finish at Dr. Mason's office before the intersection with Routes 2/5/26 in Bethel. Total distance will be just under 20 miles.
We are looking for participants, volunteers to help run the event, and spectators to cheer on the riders.
Racers will be starting individually and racing against the clock, so they should pose relatively little traffic difficulty. Nevertheless, we would like to let drivers know that there will be cyclists out on the North Road from about 9:30 until about 11 on Sunday morning.
