Bike Freedom Valley: Last Day to Sign Up for Post-Ride Picnic!!!

Have you signed up yet?

Today is your last chance to join us for a fun-filled post-ride picnic following Bike Freedom Valley this Sunday, 6/20. Register for the ride by midnight tonight to sign up for a great picnic lunch provided by the wonderful Ellen's Deli. They will be providing meat and veggie options, or nut-butter and jelly sandwiches for kids.

This picnic will be a great way to top off a day of riding and exploring greater Philadelphia's historical and contemporary cultural hot spots. (Plus it's the cheapest Fathers' Day meal
that you'll find!).

So go register today; or if you already did, encourage a friend to sign up today!

Bike Freedom Valley lets you explore the Schuylkill River Trail and the surrounding neighborhoods and supports the Bicycle Coalition's Complete the Schuylkill River Trail Campaign, a campaign that seeks to complete the 9 missing segments to further the extensive trail system.

With your registration, you receive snacks at rest stops along the route, a fully supported ride with mechanics to solve any problems, and a commemorative trail map to use to explore and enjoy the surrounding neighborhoods of the Schuylkill River Trail!

When: Sunday, June 20, 2010. Registration and packet pickup start at 6:30am. Ride starts promptly at 7:45am!

Where: 1 Boathouse Row is at the intersections of Sedgely and Kelly Drives behind the Philadelphia Museum of Art. Free street parking is available on on Sedgely Dr. and Lemon Hill Dr.

What: This is a fully supported non-competitive bike ride. You can choose trail rides (up to 48 miles round-trip), ride on shared roads (35 miles) or do both (up to 60 miles round-trip). If you have never joined us before come and discover even more of greater Philadelphia's historical and contemporary cultural hot spots.
