  • White clothing
  • Patch kit/bike pump

Thank you, Philadelphia Bicycle Journal!

Thanks so much for writing about us, growing community amongst Philadelphia bike riders is what we’re all about!

A quote from the story:

“In  “Where is Philadelphia’s Bike Culture?”, I asked what kind of alternative was there to bicycle clubs and century rides. Where were the rides that were fun and social? There are some annual events that meet these criteria and have become part of Philadelphia’s bike culture. Including The Bilenky Cyclocross, The Philly Tweed Ride, and Cranksgiving Philadelphia.

Now there is a new addition, a group planning monthly social rides, The Philly Bike Party. ”

Hellsssss yeah we’re marking this culture on the map!
