After a long cold Maine winter, it's hard to resist the urge to head outside and catch some rays. Don't forget: the sun's rays are surprisingly strong this time of year, and your skin is more vulnerable when it's pale.
Tips to help to prevent melanoma:
People with pale skin are more susceptible to burning and melanoma.
Stay out of direct sunlight when the rays of the sun are the strongest.
Pick out an appropriate sunscreen and re-apply, especially if you get wet or perspire.
Bike racking for the Tri for a Cure takes place on Expo Day, Saturday, July 25, from 10am-2pm.
This is your chance to rack your bike and collect all your registration materials. All bikes must be inspected prior to racking, but you can jump the line by having your bike pre-inspected by an area bike shop. For participants near Portland Maine, we recommend Cyclemania.
Bring the completed form (stamped by an official bike shop) to registration, and jump to the Speedy Check-In Lane of the Main Transition Area on Expo day.
