Bicycle Coalition Offers Free Air and Advice on Spruce St
The Bicycle Coalition rolled out its pilot "service station" at 16th and Spruce during Wednesday's evening commute. The station staff offered free air, safety tips and up to the minute information about the new bike lanes on Spruce and Pine Streets. More than 50 cyclists stopped by and gave us their opinions about the new facilities. They left with an I BIKE PHL sticker as well the guide to biking in Philadelphia. The pilot was an overwhelming success, so look for more BCGP service stations in the future.
