Here's the August, 2017 edition of Today River Valley

In this edition:

~ Bicycles!   Can bicycles replace cars for everyday transportation?  They're cheaper, don't require gas, don't pollute and are good exercise.  But what's it like to use bicycles on roads designed for cars and trucks?  This edition takes a look at the Trek Across Maine, an American Lung Association fund raising event, where more than a thousand bicyclists travel the roads from Newry, Maine to Belfast, Maine.  What do the participants say it's like to go so far on a bicycle on the roads of Maine?  

 ~ Then, a talk with a state official and the head of the state's main bicycling organization on whether it's practical to use a bicycle instead of a car, with comments from a Rumford man who commutes 22 miles a day on a bicycle.
