PMBA "Rally in the Valley" Festival and Fundrasier this Saturday!

The Philadelphia Mountain Biking Association (PMBA) will hold its fourth annual "Rally in the Valley" on Saturday, April, the 17th in the Wissahickon Valley Park. As always, this year's event will be a day of fun and excitement for all levels of riders. The Bicycle Coalition will be out there too, so stop by our table and say hello!

The "Rally in the Valley" is an event that brings together mountain bikers, families, local bike shops, and PMBA's supporters. This year's event will have a festival-like atmosphere with food, fun rides, time-trial challenges, friendly competitions, bike handling clinics, music, and door prizes. Funds raised from this event support trail maintenance days in the Wissahickon Valley park, in addition to mountain bike clinics held throughout the spring, summer and fall.

As in the first 3 annual events, REI is contributing in a huge way, with complimentary on-site technical assistance for all participants and lots of goodies for our "give-a-way" door prize event. TEMPLE UNIVERSITY has stepped up BIG TIME with support to PMBA for the Rally! Also, Cannondale is donating a mountain bike through their dealer Keswick Cycle, and Fuji is donating a 29er bike through Bucks County Bicycle. Princeton Tec has donated lights and many other sponsors are pitching in to make it a great day! You can win passes to Blue Mountain Vertical Earth gravity park too!

Get ready for the new event: "The Monster Climb" - who's going to take the trophy for the fastest climb up this huge hill!?!?

For the past 3 years the "Rally in the Valley" has drawn over 250 riders with over 60 volunteers providing support. Rain or Shine, PMBA welcomes you to be part of this incredible day.

Event hours: 8:00am - 2:00pm (This is a rain or shine event.)
Registration hours: 7:30am - 10:00am.
