Book Launch Party for a New Guide Book to Bicycling in Philadelphia

We will be attending a book launch party on September 8th for a new guidebook to bicycling in Philadelphia!  Those interested in registering for Bike Philly can do so with us in person at the event. Below is a description of the book:
The book, Where to Bike Philadelphia, is aimed at recreational cyclists, including families with children looking for a weekend outing and adult cyclists looking for fun and fitness. Guided by Julie Lorch, a lifelong resident and avid cycling enthusiast, the book features more than 70 rides in and around the city. In addition to maps and photography, each ride is accompanied by a description of the people behind the route and the sights you will encounter along the way! Where to Bike Philadelphia is available online at Amazon and in select bike shops and book stores.

The party takes place next Thursday, September 8th. Author Julie Lorch will lead a leisurely 30-minute bike ride along the Schuylkill River from Philly to Manayunk before the party. To join the ride, meet at Lloyd Hall on Kelly Drive at 5:30 pm. Details on the launch party below:

The party will feature finger food and drinks. Julie Lorch will be present to sign books. Our very own Sarah Clark Stuart will MC.

Sounds like a great book. The its/it's error in the promotional quote is killing me, though.

Ditto. Yikes!

A win for the grammar hounds. Apparently it bothered the author too. The offending sentence has been stricken from the graphic.
