Biking & Walking
Biking & Walking in Maine
Whether walking to get the mail, biking to school or work, or simply walking or biking around the block, many of us are pedestrians or bicyclists at some point during our day. Some people walk or bike for recreation, to save money, or to reduce pollution. Others walk or bike because they do not or cannot drive. This includes our children and many of our elderly. Itís important for communities to recognize this and to give people the opportunity to walk and bike efficiently and most importantly, safely.
