On Sunday, October 19th, the Central Bucks Bicycle Club is hosting their annual Covered Bridges Ride, a ride with five routes ranging from 20 to 63 miles, which all showcase the historic covered bridges of Bucks County. And every single one of those routes ends at the same place: a giant picnic in Tinicum Park, complete with tons of food for meat eaters and vegetarians alike. Because after 63 miles of riding, you so deserve a hot dog or two.
You guys, this could quite possibly be the most scenic bike ride you ever take, like, ever: On September 20th and 21st, the Pedaling Through Our National Parks Bike Ride will take on over 60-miles of trails throughout three national parks around Philly—the Hopewell Furnace National Historic Site, Valley Forge National Historical Park and Independence National Historical Park. Just think of all the Instagram gold to be had!
Calling all bikers: As you pedal home tonight, you might want to swing by the Art Museum to join in on the the annual Ride of Silence. This 8-mile bike ride through the streets of Center City, done in silence, honors cyclists who have been injured or killed on the road and brings awareness to cyclists’ right to share the road. This evening, there will be over 250 sister races happening worldwide.
Riders will gather at the steps of the Art Museum tonight at 6:30 p.m. and the ride will kick off at 7. There is no registration fee and no need to RSVP. Just make sure to bring your helmet and a light for your bike, and you’ll be good to go. You can find more info on the ride here.
