PHILLY BIKE EXPO: Get Ready!

Trophy Bikes returns to the

PHILLY BIKE EXPO on Oct. 27-28!

We will offer our bike theft countermeasures workshop at noon, both days (free with Expo admission), and we’re doing two morning rides, which both end up at the PA Convention Center for the Expo.

On Saturday, 10/27, Brompton owners are invited to the Brompton Breakfast Roll, an all-Brompton event.  The B-Roll meets 8:45 a.m. sharp at the central info booth in Amtrak 30th Street Station. We’ll roll around town and end up at the Expo just in time for doors open– and all you Bromptoneers get in for free.

NOTE–this ride is BROMPTON-ONLY.

(Looking for rough stuff? Scroll down for Sunday’s ride…)

EARTHvs2018

The PHILLY BUMP!, presented by 26-inch-lifestyle, is our invitation to test your bike handling skills and your sense of humor. Meets 10/28, at 8:44 a.m. in front of Trophy Bikes. Bring your chunky-tired bike, helmet, tube and tools. We’ll bounce over Philly’s worst cobble, brick, gravel, potholed-and-railroad-tracked historic streets–along the way, we will have a very polite foot-down cobblestone DERBY, and everyone on the ride gets into the Expo for FREE at the end. (including secure valet parking for what’s left of your bike)

 

IF YOU’VE READ THIS FAR: Please note that our FALL SCHEDULE snaps into effect on

MONDAY, Oct. 15th.

We trim 60 minutes from the end of our weekdays…

i.e., we’re open 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Mon. through Fri.  (instead of 7, as in the summer).  Weekend hours remain at 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sat. + Sun. 

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.

WE WILL BE BACK ON  DECK for Small Biz Saturday, Nov. 25th, starting at 10 a.m.

– to resume our semi-grueling 7-day/week schedule:

8 a.m. to 6 p.m. weekdays • 10-4 Sat. + Sun.  

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

(NOTE: Trophy Bikes is at 712 N. 2nd St., though we started at 757 S. 8th, above)
