The Medal Stand

This was not just another commuter race. This year BCGP and the Bicycle Ambassadors put some snap into this event on a foggy morning.
We also took the race to the people by moving the finish line to the SW corner of 15th and Market. For the fourth year in a row the bicyclist took first place. Travelling from 29th and Fairmount in 12 minutes and 21 seconds. About one minute later the ZipCar arrived (with a special free parking spot). As is the past the SEPTA bus rider lagged behind with a significant 10 minute gap.
Thanks to everyone who helped make this fun event a reality. Especially to Fuji Bikes President Pat Cunnane and Somerdale Track Coach Jim Mohan for operating the giant track clock.
