Bike Commuter Race Tomorrow (Wednesday) 8AM

The Bicycle Coalition of Greater Philadelphia will be staging a race between three commuters: a bicyclist, a car driver and a transit rider. The race will test the theory that a bicyclist who commutes four miles or less in Philadelphia will generally arrive before, or within a few minutes of, other commuters during rush hour. To give the car every chance to win the race, the driver will be in a convertible sports car (provided by Zip Car).

The finish line will be at City Hall in Dilworth Plaza, the race begins at 8AM.
