AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) - Bicyclists who are peddling more than 300 miles from Calais to Portland will stop in Maine’s capital city.

The 17 bicyclists are cycling on the East Coast Greenway, a 3,000-mile trail route that goes from the Canadian border to Key West, Florida. Maine Department of Transportation officials say the tour will reach Augusta on Friday.

The bike trip began on July 31 and ends on Saturday. The ride is hosted by the East Coast Greenway Alliance to help raise money to further develop the route.

Maine DOT representatives will meet the riders at the head of the Kennebec River Rail Trail for a news conference on Friday. They are expected to arrive in Augusta at 9 a.m.
