Psst! Philly Bike Expo Happening This Weekend!

Hey. Pssst. You look like a bicyclist, amiright? Thought so. What do you think about hand-crafted bike frames? Yeah, I could stare at them all day, too. You into messenger-chic fashion? I'm loving that bag, by the way. Ever done an alleycat race? Hah, well, I'm not going to say. Why am I asking? Just cuz I've got an event you might want to check out, is all:

The Philly Bike Expo is happening this weekend! 

The Expo is a great chance to dip your toe into the scene, check out and support local bicycle artisans, and/or indulge your inner bicycle fanboy/fangirl. Events and activities include a fashion show, a bike swap (see poster below), tons of booths and exhibitions, a Halloween-themed alleycat race, and of course after-parties.

you know you want one
We'll be there, selling our new pumpkin orange I Bike PHL t-shirts and talking about completing the Schuylkill River Trail. Stop by our booth in the exhibition space to learn about new construction happening as we speak, and a dazzling new website on the horizon.
