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.

BUBS4

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!

THE NEW BLACK EDITION BROMPTONS  HAVE ARRIVED IN OUR SHOWROOM.

We have ordered most of them with the new Black Lacquer, a smokey finish that cloaks the steel, while still letting it peek through.  There is no way to get the full effect of this other than in person.  We’re here from 8 a.m to 6 p.m. weekdays and 10-4 Sat. and Sun.

Meet up with fellow Brompton riders and join us for a Flea Market Frolic on Saturday, December 16!  (under 8 mi. total, easy paced)

MEETS 11 a.m. sharp at Trophy Bikes (712 N. 2nd St.); we’ll cruise through Chinatown and then South Philly to the infamous PUNK ROCK FLEA MARKET at the Bok Building.

We’ll GUARD your neatly-folded Bromptons while you shop for funky gift bargains at one of Philadelphia’s more unusual holiday happenings.  The PuNk RoCk FleA* features 100 vendors selling vintage and hand-made goods, clothing, LPs and crafty items.

bromptonsAfterward, we’ll spin north with our swag along the Delaware River and roll through two of Philadelphia’s newest riverfront pier-parks. FINISHES BACK AT TROPHY BIKES; optional after-beverage hangout at one of the fine local pubs nearby.

ALSO back at Trophy Bikes after the ride: special discounts for all Bromptoneers on any and all Brompton goods in stock. PLUS surprise gifts for the owners of the oldest and newest Bromptons on the ride (per serial numbers!).

NOTE: This is a Brompton-only ride, thanks for your cooperation; helmets and blinky lights, please. • RAIN/SNOW DATE 12/17; wear layers–we re-sked only for snow or rain!

(* Note: entry is $3, BUT the first 10 Bromptoneers to arrive at Trophy get free admission to the Punk Rock Flea Market.) 

 

ADVANCE NOTE: Closed on Thanksgiving and #GetOutside day (a.k.a. Black Friday)

One of the important things about bicycling is that you can choose your own path.  The current consumer tsunami that is Thanksgiving and Black Friday, as currently practiced, are, um, the opposite of that.  We are in total agreement with REI and other enlightened retailers that being closed on these days is a win for staff and citizens who can then get to hang with family and friends, or just ride off down the path alone for a while, even! Thus please note that we will be closed Nov. 23-24.

Cheers, and enjoy your calories – and the rides that burn them off.
