Maine Adaptive and Slipping Gears Cycling are holding a cycling clinic Saturday in Bangor for people with physical disabilities.

Remember when you were a kid and riding your bicycle was your ticket to freedom? That feeling holds on for many long into their adulthood. But, for someone in a wheelchair, that could be a feeling they've never experienced.

And that's where Maine Adaptive comes in. This Southern Maine-based non-profit works to make it possible for people with disabilities to have all sorts of athletic experiences that they otherwise might not be exposed to. And it's not limited to cycling. Maine Adaptive deals with many sports, including skiing.

The organization is looking to expand its services in the Bangor area, so this Saturday is holding a cycling clinic at the Bangor Forest and Orono Bog Boardwalk. The event is happening, with help from the folks at Slipping Gears Cycling, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. And tonight, there will be a volunteer training clinic from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. For more information on the training and clinic, log onto the event page on Facebook. And you can learn more about Maine Adaptive at the organization's website.
