RIde Your Bike In Philadelphia on Sunny Saturday

If you are free on Saturday then you should bike to City Hall. At 9Am Celebrity/Environmental Activist Ed Begley Jr. will lead a bicycle ride for the "Look Up" energy awareness campaign sponsored by Hunter Ceiling Fans.

Begley will be leading a ride starting on the 13th St side of City Hall and up to the Benjamin Franklin Pkwy, continuing through Fairmount Park and ending at Strawberry Mansion Dr. Bridge with a short reception.

If Ceiling Fans aren't your thing and you still want to meet Ed Begley Jr. then you consider riding with Neighborhood Bike Works who will be holding their annual Major Taylor Birthday Bike Ride and Barbecue. Begley will be at the barbecue which will happen at the Picnic Area adjacent to the Mann Music Center. Contact Neighborhood Bike Works at 215-386-0316 for more ride information.

Ride back to City Hall and take some time to enjoy the Philadelphia Christmas Village on Dilworth Plaza. It looks like fun and breathes some life into that barren public space. The Christmas Village is open from Thanksgiving to Christmas Eve.
