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. 

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!

BLACK EDITION BROMPTONS ARE HERE!

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.

We have Black Edition Bromptons in M, H and S bar configurations, so please do let us know what you’re looking for.
