Who are these rides for?
Everybody! If you like the idea of going on a slow-paced bicycle ride with a group of people, you should come on down.
Where do we go?
The rides all start at Fairmount Bicycles, 2015 Fairmount Ave, Philadelphia PA 19130. We try to have a different route every time, and we involve as many bike paths or bike lanes as possible. Suggestions for routes are welcomed.
My bike sucks. Will I be able to keep up?
Yes! We're not planning on going fast, and these rides are open to anyone, so bring out those rusty Huffy 3 Speeds.
I don't have a bike, but I want to go!
You can rent a bike from Fairmount Bicycles for FREE! (credit card and ID required for deposit.)
It's raining/snowing/really freakin cold. Are we still gonna go for a ride?
Why take your time? When I'm on a bike, I want to prove I'm faster than everybody.
These rides probably aren't for you, then!
2015 Fairmount Ave
We are a bicycle shop offering bike sales, service, and rentals. New and used bikes available. Stop on by and say hello!
