The Bicycle Coalition of Greater Philadelphia is on the move! With 400 miles of bike paths and lanes, a 150 percent increase in bicycle commuting, and new safe traffic patterns, biking in Philadelphia is quickly becoming the norm.
To encourage its current and future projects, and to get more people out on bikes, BGCP is hosting a monthly group five-mile bike ride through the city. Each ride will follow a different route, focusing on portions BGCP is currently improving.
The first BGCP Fun Rides will be to the Ben Franklin Bridge on Wed., Aug. 15, lead by John Boyle, research director at BGCP. The rides will continue the third Wednesday of every month.
