40th Annual Philadelphia Bike-a-Thon

On Sunday, July 8th, the American Cancer Society is hosting the 40th annual Bike-a-Thon in Philadelphia.  There are four different starting points.  The 100 mile ride starts at the Ben Franklin Bridge.  The other starting points are for shorter rides.  There are well-stocked rest stops along the route.  If you don't want to ride you can donate to those who do.  You can read more at

A number of local bike shops provide roadside repairs along the route and support the effort in other ways.  If you are thinking of buying a bike, remember to check the list of participating bike shops and patronize those stores throughout the year.
