Founded in 2010 by Bilenky Cycle Works, the Expo promotes “the fun, function, fitness and freedom to be found on two wheels.” The event 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.
Bilenky hosts the event so we can all “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.”
ABEA will provide Philadelphia’s first CyclingSavvy course during the weekend. CyclingSavvy instructor Harold Karabell–known for his awesome interpretive tours in St. Louis–will lead a historic architecture bicycle tour of Center City, weather permitting.
We’ll also host a table in the Expo Hall and offer presentations on cycling safety and our programs. Details are under development. We’ll update you here on the blog, as well as on our Facebook page.
We hope to see you in The Cradle of Liberty!
