PORTLAND, Maine (AP) -- A 180-mile bike ride is continuing across Maine.

Officials said about 2,000 riders began the ride Friday at Sunday River and traveled nearly 70 miles to the University of Maine at Farmington. Saturday's leg takes the riders nearly 60 miles to Colby College in Waterville.

The final stretch - about 56 miles - ends Sunday in Belfast.

The event is a fundraiser for the American Lung Association of Maine. Last year's event raised about $1.3 million for the organization.
