American Bike Ride, in partnership with Bicycle Coalition of Greater Philadelphia, announces the return of Philly Bike Ride, scheduled to take place on Saturday, October 14, 2023 with a start time of 7:30 a.m. Bicyclists will have the unique opportunity to cruise through Philly neighborhoods, famous sites, and scenic skyline views in a closed-road, non-competitive bike ride, for the second year in a row. The event was recently named the city’s Best New Annual Event by Philly Magazine. Registration is open and can be completed at Phillybikeride.com.
The ride, celebrating life on two wheels, is ideal for riders of all ages to enjoy music, taste local flavors, and capture memorable photos as they pedal past the historic sites of Center City, Independence Hall, Penns Landing, Kelly Drive, and also take in local neighborhoods. Participants can choose from a 20-mile course or a shorter 7.6-mile version, with a finish line by the iconic setting of the Philadelphia Museum of Art and the shadow of the famed Rocky Steps. The event concludes with a post-ride festival, free and open to the public, that features live music, wellness activities, complete with food trucks and family-friendly fun to make for a festive Fall Saturday.
