BROMPTONS UNDER BROAD STREET!

This Saturday, 11 August, we invite Brompton bike riders to join us in a “top-down” tour of the Philly Free Streets day.  Philly Free Streets, now in its 3rd year, will turn Broad Street, from City Hall to Erie Avenue, into a car-free zone from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m.

NOTE: We will meet, RAIN or SHINE! • If it’s like, BIBLICAL RAIN, we may just take the subway to Erie Avenue and hang out, then subway back and retreat to La Colombe or even FERGIES PUB. So, please bring a jacket and be flexible; that’s the beauty of riding a Brompton, the world’s best folder bicycle. 

Our event will take advantage of the Brompton’s unique fold to take SEPTA up to the north end of Open Streets.  We will meet at La Colombe Coffee Penn Square, on the SW  corner of City Hall at 10 a.m. sharp. First, a quick lap around City Hall, then down into a cool, rumbling Broad Street subway car, which will rocket us to Broad and Erie in 16 minutes!

We’ll unfold and pedal back down 100% car-free North Broad Street to City Hall (4.6 miles, easy pace, lots of stops for photos) …and maybe a post-ride beverage at nearby Fergie’s Pub.

The ride is FREE (please bring $2.50 or your SEPTA KEY for the subway trip), but because of space considerations–Brompton bikes only, please.   • •   RSVP to info@trophybikes.com with BUBS in the subject line to help us know how many Brompton riders to expect. THANKS!

 

PS–SAVE THE DATE: Sept. 9th THE BROMPTON BURST– BROMPTON RACING IN BEAUTIFUL DOYLESTOWN PA. We will ride a special BROMPTON CAR on SEPTA to this event. Go to:  http://buckscountyclassic.com/races/brompton  for all the details!
