Get on your bike and take a hike!

Saturday November 5th, 7am. Transport Cycles presents a scenic ramble that visits the gravel roads of Belmont and the Wissahickon. This will be a chill 30ish mile mixed surface ride that will include one climb that will make you work a little. The ride will leave from the trellis next to Paines skatepark and will finish at the Philadelphia Bike Expo. Conversational pace. No drop.

Closing Ceremonies at Philly Bike Expo

Sunday Nov 6 at 3:30pm will include a tribute to recent losses in the framebuilding community.
