Ride with WBPHL to the Single Speed Cyclocross World Championships!

In case you haven't heard, there's a major bike event happening in Philadelphia this weekend: the Single Speed Cyclocross World Championships - part race, part party, all FUN.

Never heard of cyclocross? Been curious about it for a while? Just want a group to ride with to the festivities this weekend? This is your chance!

Women Bike PHL leader Katie Monroe and local CX-er Michelle Lee will lead a group ride to the event at Belmont Plateau on Sunday. We'll meet at Bicycle Therapy at 10:00 AM. The races will run approximately 11 AM-1:45 PM.

Our route will be 6 miles, take roughly approx 30 minutes, and be at a relaxed pace. Spectators & out-of-towners welcome. Note: this is a Women Bike PHL ride, so our goal is to encourage women to come out and join in the SSCXWC festivities. However, all genders are welcome to attend the ride. 

The good folks of Philly Pedals will have a tent at the race, ready to welcome us! Everyone who does this ride will be entered in a raffle for a free Philly Pedals t-shirt.


Things you may want to bring to win at spectating:
  • Extra jacket for staying warm while standing still
  • Cowbell, kazoo, or other fancy instrument
  • Cash for food trucks that will be on hand
