The sixth annual Share the Road with Carol memorial bike ride is set for Sunday, Oct 1.

The all-ages commemorative bike ride takes place in Windsor and Whitefield. The ride, which has 12- and 27-mile options, starts and ends at the Windsor Town Office at 523 Ridge Road.

This annual ride honors the memory of Carol Eckert, M.D. She was tragically killed as a result of a bike accident that occurred in Windsor on Oct. 10, 2016. Biking was her passion, and organizers invite everyone who feels the same to join in remembrance of a life well pedaled and to further the cause of bicycle safety in Maine, according to a news release from Christina Moylan with the event.

The registration fee is $20 for adults, or $10 for any person younger than 15 accompanied by a parent or guardian. Register at or at the event from 7:30-8:30 a.m. Advance registration is encouraged.

There will be one rest stop on the 27-mile ride. This is an opportunity to explore the rolling hills along the border of the Kennebec and Lincoln counties.

This ride is not intended to be a fundraiser, but revenue in excess of expenses may be applied to local bike safety and education efforts.
