Pop-Up Adventure: Bikes & Brews @ Slipping Gears Cycling | Bangor | Maine | United States

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

Downdogs at Dirigo @ Dirigo Brewing Co
Mar 25 @ 10:30 am
Downdogs at Dirigo @ Dirigo Brewing Co | Biddeford | Maine | United States

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 Dirigo Brewing Co., 28 Pearl St, Biddeford
(The tasting room opens to the public at noon).
$15 drop-in. Bring your own mat.

Mudathlon @ Hidden Valley Nature Center

Mudathlon @ Hidden Valley Nature Center | Jefferson | Maine | United States

Join Midcoast Conservancy and Teens To Trails for the 1st (and maybe only) Midcoast Mudathlon on April 15 at Hidden Valley Nature Center in Jefferson. This fun-first event will include trail running and air rifle target shooting; all participants will receive a safety training on the rifles before they race. Members of Trail Monster Running will be on hand to participate and support new trail running enthusiasts.

Race categories will include family (parents and any number of kids), youth, high school, novice, intermediate and advanced. The trail loop is approximately three-quarters of a mile; racers will alternate shooting and running. Family and novice course will involve two shooting rounds and one trail loop; the rest will entail at least two running loops and two times at the target range. Be prepared for muddy, sloppy trails—but that’s part of the fun! Teams are an option, and creative costumes are encouraged; the best ones will receive awards at the post-race ceremony.

Spectators are welcome. After racing concludes, there will be vegetarian chili, hot chocolate and cider for participants and the cheering crowds. Midcoast Conservancy will have its fat tire bike fleet at the Nature Center as well, for anyone who would like to take one for a spin on the trails. Bring a helmet, or borrow one from the Midcoast Conservancy community hub gear collection.

Race fees are $25 for adults, $30 for families, $5 for youth and students. For questions about ages, race level or anything else, call Midcoast Conservancy at 389-5150.
