Route Flooding Cancels Scenic Schuylkill Century

The following is an announcement from the Bicycle Club of Philadelphia:
After long, hard discussion, our Century Committee and members of BCP's Board this afternoon made the decision to cancel Saturday's Scenic Schuylkill Century. The decision was made due to our inability to assure our riders of a reasonably safe, well-marked route (major re-routing would have been required) in light of the unprecedented rain and flooding in recent days with forecasts of rain and continued flood stage waters on the Schuylkill River (our route hugs the river for the first and last 10 miles) and other areas through Saturday. The decision was difficult, but safety trumps other considerations. If you registered for the ride, we will be contacting you with more information.

PS Family Fest and Bike Philly will go on as scheduled this weekend.
