Better Mobility @ Phila Mayoral Forum Thu 3/19


better-mobility
It’s almost here, folks. In two weeks, Philadelphia’s mayoral candidates will gather at the Friends Center in Center City, Philadelphia, to discuss those issues near and dear to you and us: Mobility.

The forum, moderated by Philadelphia Magazine Deputy Editor Patrick Kerkstra, will feature specific questions about bicycle use, pedestrians, public transportation, and related issues.

Together, we can make mobility a priority for our next mayor—if the candidates see how serious we are.

And whether or not all the candidates agree to our platform, Better mobility 2015 will tell us where they stand, and whether or not they deserve our vote.

That’s why we need you to RSVP, and come to the Friends Center on March 19 at 6pm. If the candidates see how many of us there are, and how serious we are, we can make a real change in Philadelphia.

When you make your presence known on March 19th, every Philadelphia mayoral candidate will understand that we want safer streets, protected bike lanes, a better street paving schedule, better public transit, and a focused bike share effort.

Come out and help us make it happen.

Spring’s here


It may not have felt like it this morning when you were chipping away at the ice, but spring is here. Outside our shop, I see ice melt trickling down the street.

Spring’s definitely here.

And we’d like to announce the following:

1. Open again on Mondays. Yup, it’s the end of the 2-day weekends that we enjoyed during January & February.  Now, the only day the shop’s closed is Sunday.

2. Early (real early) drop-off on Thursdays.   To support all you riders, we’re open early on Thursdays. Like from 6 till 8am.  So you can drop off your bike as you head to work.  And pick up on your way home. If running late for the train, text us and we’ll meet you at either Sedgwick or Mt Airy station to take the bike off your hands. 215.821.9266.

3. We have a new team member, Richard. Richard will greet you, write up your repair ticket, make sure you’ve got some coffee or water, and, you’ve been warned, try to sell you a bike!

Stop on by. Spring’s here. We’ve missed you.

Gone Expo’in!

E-bikers Unite!


Meetup

Finally!  Someone’s decided to organize e-bike rides in our region.  Our friend Cheryl in Northern NJ has setup a Meetup group. The first ride is scheduled for Saturday October 18th, 2014 at 1250 County Road 629, Clinton, NJ .   Hoping some of you New Jersey e-bikers can make it!
