NEXT SUNDAY, 11 September – you are invited to join us on a Brompton Folder Bike Day Trip:
HOP the (9:41) train to Doylestown and CHEER top-level cycle racing, RIDE the course on your Brompton between events, DIG an Arts Festival (conveniently located right next to the bike race, -AND– do a quick SWOOP to some great lunch, book and vintage shops before catching the train back to Philly by late PM.
There will be prizes for the BEST-DRESSED (as judged by a jury of our peers) Brompton riders.
This event is for Brompton folder bikes, it’s FREE (except for train tix), but please RSVP to info (at) trophybikes dot com.
We will MEET UP at the center info booth inside AMTRAK 30th St. Station, at 9:30 sharp. (so we have time to purchase tickets and such)
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.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org with BUBS in the subject line to help us know how many Brompton riders to expect. THANKS!
Get that winter muck off yer Brompton folder at the Brommie Wash. From 11 to 2 on Sat., March 17, we’ll give your faithful bike a splash, a scrub and some chain lube too. You can help if you wish (we’ll give you gloves) or just cheer from the sidelines and yell, “You missed a spot!” from time to time. If it’s warm enough, we’ll go for a quick ride at 2 p.m., so bring a helmet and some money for a beer. Cheers!
Get a FREE* wash, rinse + chain lube for your faithful machine this SATURDAY. ALSO: free safety inspections + other specials in the shop! First-come / First-served *NOTE: we will accept TIPS––100% of tips donated to the Bicycle Coalition of Greater Philadelphia.
