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

OK, we’re back in the PHILLY BIKE EXPO again! Nov. 5-6, 2016

We have never missed a single episode of the Philly Bike Expo, starting when it looked like this:

Awww, wasn’t that cute?   Now the Expo is in a bigger-than-ever space at the Convention Center, with more top cycling companies, advocates and artisans than ever before — We will be there with bells on, showing off the new BROMPTON BICYCLE 2017 models which have some notable design changes, which is just about all we can say about that for the moment!  Trophy Bikes will again be leading the Brommie Breakfast Roll from 30th Street Station to the Expo, using a rather circuitous path, and celebrating Brompton Saturday and Surly Sunday–more details on all that in our next postings. But do please plan to come to the best bike show on the East Coast.   cheers,
