Welcome to the Philly Bike News blog. My goal is to provide updates on bicycling in the Greater Philadelphia Region. Check here often.

New Regional Bike Map
The new Philadelphia Regional Bike Map is now available at the BCGP office (252 S. 11th St). Local bike shops will be getting the maps in the next few weeks. Current locations where you can pick up maps as 3/31 Trophy Bikes, Philadelphia, Keswick Cyclery Glenside, and Cycle Fit Rockledge.

Waterworks Bike Path now open.
The path that runs past the Waterworks and underneath West River Drive has been re-opened. This enables bike riders on the Kelly Drive to avoid most of the Art Museum Circle to get to the Ben Franklin Parkway. Construction continues south of the West River Drive down to Locust St, which will be complete in December.
