All riders will enjoy attentive on-course nutritional, mechanical, and medical support; timing chips (with prizes for top climbers on the 50- and 90-mile courses); a Roubaix-style victory lap around the iconic Valley Preferred Cycling Center (“T-Town” velodrome) track; and a postride party with a healthy lunch, beer, massages, and more.
The Philly Bike Expo is a celebration of cycling. In 2010, Bilenky Cycle Works aspired to broaden their reach and promote cycling culture. And so, the Philly Bike Expo was born. Now in its 6th year, the Philly Bike Expo promotes the fun, function, fitness and freedom to be found on two wheels. The Philly Bike Expo creates an environment that fosters relationships between the cycling community and the dedicated companies and organizations that are the foundation of bicycles as a lifestyle. We host this weekend to admire the artisans whose craft enables us to ride two-wheeled art, to applaud the activists whose tireless efforts further our cycling infrastructure and to explore cycling as a fun and efficient transportation alternative.
