Share the Road with Carol, an all ages commemorative bike ride, is planned for Oct. 1 in Windsor and Whitefield. The ride, which is not a fundraiser, has 12-mile and 27-mile options, and starts and ends at the Windsor Town Office.

This ride will honor the memory of Dr. Carol Eckert, who was killed as a result of a bike accident on Oct. 10, 2016, in Windsor. Biking was Eckert’s passion and everyone is invited who feels the same to join in remembrance of a life well pedaled and to further the cause of bicycle safety in Maine. Register online at or at the event beginning at 8 a.m. The $25 fee only covers the expenses of the event.

There will be one rest stop on the 27-mile ride. A gathering is planned after the ride at the Windsor Town Hall for fellowship, remembrances and light snacks.

Whether one knew Eckert or not, this ride is an opportunity to explore the rolling hills along the border of the Kennebec and Lincoln counties.
