One of the Nation’s Best
The Philly Bike Expo is celebrating its 12th year. This remarkable event, at the Pennsylvania Convention Center in downtown Philadelphia, brings together outstanding exhibitors from throughout the country. These include dealers, distributors, advocacy organizations, and specialty frame makers. There will be valet bicycle parking. For general information, check out the Expo’s Web site. Here’s a panoramic view of the exhibitor area in an earlier year’s Philly Bike Expo. (Click photo to enlarge.)
CyclingSavvy at the Philly Bike Expo
Don’t forget to visit the ABEA/Coalition for Appropriate Transportation booth (number 3510, just to the right of the food court). You’ll be able to “drive” a human-powered vehicle through a busy intersection and see how to avoid the hazards.
We’ll lead a sightseeing ride ride Saturday morning — 7:30 AM from the Ellen Phillips Samuel Monument. More detail is here. The ride arrives at the Expo as it opens. We’ll also lead a ride from the Convention Center to a big Saturday evening party.
Workshops and demos
John Allen will give his talk Riding Philly Streets Saturday at 10:30 AM, and Pam Murray will give a demo on setting up a bicycle for everyday use Saturday at 1:30 PM. The full workshop schedule is here.
