Join us at the Ride of Silence

Tomorrow, the 3rd Wednesday in May, join us for the 10th annual Ride of Silence.  Our shop will close earlier, by 4pm, to participate in this ride.

This evening, at hundreds of locations across the world, cyclists will join in a silent slow-paced ride in honor of cyclists injured or killed in motor vehicle-related accidents, and to raise awareness about the rights of cyclists on public roads.

This is the 7th Ride of Silence in Philadelphia and about 500 riders are expected for the 8 mile ride.

Please join us 6:45pm at the steps of the Philadelphia Art Museum on Benjamin Franklin Parkway. Helmets & lights are encouraged.

Starting with a brief pre-ride ceremony at 6:45, the ride will begin promptly at 7:00.  There will be a rolling police escort as we ride quietlydown the Parkway, circle City Hall, continue to Independence Hall, head over to West Philly via the Walnut St bridge, returning to the Art Museum over the Spring Garden Street bridge. The 8-mile ride will be approximately 1 and a half hours.
