Bikes for Pilots. Pilots love to fly to any destination but it is more enticing when there are opportunities to do further
exploring upon arrival. By making bikes
available, pilots and their passengers can
extend their visit beyond the airport. Bikes are available from May 1 to thru October. Check out the aopa story on MAA’s pilot bike program at: https://www.aopa.org/news-and-media/all-news/2018/august/20/bikes-for-pilots-on-a-roll-in-maine
From the mountains to the coast courtesy bikes are available at these locations for 2019:
BRUNSWICK EXECUTIVE AIRPORT
The Bikes Are Back at BXM! There are currently 4 bikes located at the FBO in BXM for the season. Please keep the bikes locked when not in use. Great place to ride with Cook’s Corner to the north and a walk/bike path to downtown Brunswick to the south. There is also a golf course at the end of runway 01. This is the 4th year now for bikes at BXM and they have proven to be very
popular at this former Navy Base installation.
This is the 3rd year at Bethel . We NOW have 4 bikes at the Bethel airport (0B1 ). Enjoy the ride in this beautiful western mountain region. It’s a great destination with a bike path into town with shops, restaurants and places to stay.
We have two bikes at the Pittsfield Airport (2B7) courtesy of Curtis Air Services. We are looking at adding other airports like Lincoln and/or Sanford for the 2019 season.
RULES OF THE ROAD…
PLEASE TAKE CARE OF THE BIKES. THESE BIKES ARE IN GOOD CONDITION AND TUNED-UP FOR THE SEASON. BIKE HELMETS ARE NOT INCLUDED, BUT HIGHLY RECOMMEND YOU BRING AND WEAR ONE–BYOH.
THE BIKE LOCK CODE IS THE AIRPORT’S UNICOM FREQ.
IT IS VERY IMPORTANT TO ALWAYS LOCK THE BIKES WHEN YOU ARE DONE RIDING. THE BETHEL AIRPORT BIKES ARE NOT IN AS SECURE PLACE AS THE ONES AT BXM. TAKE THE LOCKS WITH YOU WHEN YOU RIDE INTO TOWN. WE WANT THESE BIKES TO BE THERE FOR ALL PILOTS TO ENJOY. THANK YOU!
Thank you to all who donated the bicycles for this program
ENJOY THE RIDE!
