Bike Freedom Valley One Week Away

Late Registration is open until midnight June 19th! Register now and save!
Come ride with us on June 20, 2010 as we celebrate the 30th Bike Freedom Valley by riding from Philadelphia's historic Boathouse Row along the family-friendly Schuylkill River Trail to ride as far as Lower Perkiomen Park (3 miles past Valley Forge). 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 nine 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!

PS - I just saw the final proofs of the trail map on Friday and it looks great! Lots of information about connecting trails, sites along the trail and even the trail surface (paved, gravel etc.) which can be useful for road bike enthusiasts.
