Volunteer with us this Friday and impress your urban planner friends

Friday is Park(ing) Day, whereon individuals, organizations, and businesses can transform a street parking space into something far less dull. We are pretty pump'd to be installing two bike parking corrals in Center City. One will be located at the corner of Walnut & Sydenham, the other on the sidewalk of the 200 block of S. Broad Street.

More information to come on this, but we're in need of a couple of volunteers to help us man/woman tables/tents at both sites. We will be at these locations from 8 AM - 4 PM. We are looking for volunteers who can spare 2-3 hours during that window.

You will be assisting a Bicycle Coalition staff member do the following:

  • Hand out our Bike Parking Guide and other literature to folks on the sidewalk
  • Answer questions about the awesome bicycle corral they see before them
  • Be friendly and excited about bicycling 

Sound like you? Want to help the Bicycle Coalition and impress your urban planner friends with your participation in Park(ing) Day? Shoot us an e-mail to ben@bicyclecoalition.org and we'll get you set up. There's a Bike Philly or I Bike PHL t-shirt in it to sweeten the pot.
