Attendees included Philadelphia Mountain Bike Assocation, Bicycle Club of Philadelphia, North Delaware Riverfront Development Corp. New Kensington CDC, Neighborhood Bike Works, Mayors Office of Transportation and the Streets Department, Pedal Co-Op, Greater Valley Forge TMA, Trophy Bikes, and the UPenn Police Bicycle Patrol.

While the discussion topics for the night were casual one could not help but think that this event would be a great precurser to a Philadelphia Bike Summit. Thanks to ASI President Pat Cunnane and his team for holding a fun and well attended event.

The best part about this was that I got to meet Joe Breeze (building bikes for the other 95%)!
