Bicycle Coalition Is Throwing a Birthday Party for the Spruce and Pine Street Bike Lanes

They're turning six!

Happy birthday to you, happy birthday dear Spruce and Pine Street bike lanes, happy birthday to you!

Yes, it’s true, the Spruce and Pine Street bike lanes are turning six years old. (They grow up so fast.) According to PennDOT, since the routes opened the city has seen a 24 percent drop in crashes on those streets. Now that’s something to celebrate.

That’s why the Bicycle Coalition of Greater Philadelphia is throwing a bash tomorrow from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. right along the bike routes.

So, join the festivities and visit a birthday station, complete with free coffee and balloons. Then, at 6 p.m. strap on your helmet and ride over to the Philadelphia Ethical Society at 1906 Rittenhouse Square for an after party of sorts, celebrating better bike lanes. (Yes, there will be cake … and beer!)
