Opening of Penn Street Trail in NoLibs Offers Glimpse of Future Delaware River Biking

It may not be long, but it sure will be nice. The Penn Street Trail, Philly's first on-road, separated bicycle and pedestrian trail, will be having its ribbon cutting on Monday, June 17th. This quarter-mile trail which runs north from Spring Garden Ave & Delaware Ave is a showcase for the infrastructure the Delaware River Waterfront Corporation and other Circuit Coalition partners are seeking to build along the Delaware.

You can join Mayor Nutter in welcoming Philly's newest and perhaps nicest section of on-street bike path Monday morning at 10:30 AM. Just say you're going out for coffee and take a little bike ride up to Spring Garden & Delaware Ave. Exercise boosts productivity anyway.
