Getting several reports that Nicole Freedman the head of cycling programs in Boston has been hired as the head of head of Maine Huts & Trails
The Associated Press
KINGFIELD — A former Olympic cyclist has been hired as the new executive director of an organization that’s developing a backcountry network of huts along 180 miles of trails in Maine’s western mountains.
Nicole Freedman begins this month as head of Maine Huts and Trails.
A member of the 2000 Olympic cycling team, Freedman has served as director of bicycle programs for the city of Boston the past five years.
Maine Huts and Trails was formed with the long-term aim of building 12 overnight shelters and non-motorized trails stretching from near the New Hampshire border to the Moosehead Lake region. Each shelter has a main lodge, private rooms with beds, hot showers and home-cooked meals.
So far, the organization has built three huts along 50 miles of trails.
No word yet on if this means she is leaving Boston, more when I get it. Freedman has been a power house of change in Boston these last couple years, and if she is leaving it will be a sad day. More here, and here.
EDIT: got an email from Nicole, she is moving, I wish her the best on her new journey.
