MYA is teaming up with Slipping Gears and Black Bear Brewery for fat bikes and phat beers!
Our adventure will begin at Slipping Gears in Bangor where adventurers will pick up their bike for a sweet trail ride in Old Town. Please don’t forget your helmet. These fat bikes we’re enjoying for a couple hours are brand new and of course available for purchase if you fall in love. Beginners are welcome – this is your big chance to try out the fat bike of your dreams!
For a fabulous riding opportunity in the greater Bangor area, we’ll travel to the new Rick Swan Trail System at the Perch Pond Woodlot off the Kirkland Road in Old Town. Perch Pond (previously known as mud pond) offers up a beautiful site for a great biking workout. We’ll have an experienced rider on hand to help adventurers along the way.
Following our biking session we’ll get some fab yoga stretches in then head over to the Black Bear Brewery in Orono for a delicious pint of craft beer and yummy healthy and hearty vegetarian food courtesy of MYA.
Cost: $70 Limit: 9 adventurers

Sundays are for chilling out. Down time. Going easy.
I’m all for lounging around in pajamas the entire day watching old episodes of Dateline. But for an easy-going Sunday that you can still feel proud to talk about at work on Monday, there’s Downdogs at Dirigo.
This weekly event combines an hour of yoga with a glass of your favorite Dirigo Brewing Co. beer. (To be clear, you do the yoga first, then drink the beer. Not that beer-during-yoga wouldn’t also be lovely, but think of it most as a post-yoga reward.)
Sundays 10:30 a.m.at Dirigo Brewing Co., 28 Pearl St, Biddeford
(The tasting room opens to the public at noon).
$15 drop-in. Bring your own mat.

Explore the wonders of nature under the light of the full moon at Hidden Valley Nature Center. Let your eyes adjust to the ambient light, enjoy the shadows and the sounds of coyotes, owls, and the trees blowing in the wind. We’ll end the evening with a hot drink and camaraderie at one of the heated cabins. Meet at the gate promptly for a 2.5 mile trek to the pond for the full moon rising. Please no dogs. If you are borrowing our snowshoes, please make arrangements and arrive early for a fitting.
Join Loon Echo staff for what proves to be a very popular hike when conditions allow! Guests will meet at the main parking area at Bald Pate Mountain Preserve at 6:00 PM for the 30 minute scramble to the summit. The sun will set at 7:05 and the full Pink Moon will rise at 7:25. This also happens to be a Blue Moon (the second full moon of a month). Along the way, guests will learn the great story of how Bald Pate Mountain was permanently protected, the critters that call it “home” and its future management. Snowshoes or traction devices may be required. Don’t forget your headlamp for the return trip! Water and snacks always encouraged. Approximately 2 hours. Moderate
The Eastern Trail Alliance will host two evening walks to see the full moon – a blue moon! – from the trail. It’s FREE and an experience not to be missed. Walks are 60-90 minutes. All ages welcome (but flashlights and furry friends are not).
Meet at 7 p.m. at either location below:
1.) Southern Maine Health Care, Biddeford. (back parking lot off W Cole Rd) with Biologist & Trustee Joe Yuhas
2.) Pine Point Rd, Scarborough-Eastern Trail crossing parking lot with Executive Director Carole Brush
