Bicyclist pedals off Maine State Pier
"Police say the man who rode his bike off the end of the Maine State Pier last night was admiring the tugboats in the harbor instead of paying attention to the end of the road.
Roger Cyr of Arundel splashed into the water around 6:30 and had to be rescued by the Portland Fire Department. He told police he was just admiring the tugboats as he pedaled down the pier and didn't see the end coming until it was too late.
He was quickly pulled from the water and treated by paramedics for a shoulder injury. The bike, though, wasn't recovered. It's more than likely still at the bottom of Casco Bay."
Too bad they didn't say what kind of bike it was. If it was a nice one, I could have went for a swim at lunchtime
