Bike To Work Day 2017

Philadelphia’s annual Bike To Work Day is May 19 — and we at the Bicycle Coalition are excited to lead in this year’s ride with local bike commuters, city cyclists, and city leaders and show the world that Philly bikes!

As usual, the Bicycle Coalition of Greater Philadelphia will host several Energizer Stations around the city in the morning, and a press conference at Philadelphia City Hall later in the morning, where we’ll be presenting two “Bike-Phriendly Business” awards to local companies and organizations that have made bicycling a priority in their workplace.

Hundreds of Philadelphians are expected to participate in this year’s Bike To Work Day. Biking to work saves time, money, lowers stress, is good exercise and—perhaps most importantly—is fun. Click the link below to pledge to bike on May 19.


Energizer Stations


The announced energizer stations will be at the Penn Museum (33rd and South Streets), The Last Drop Coffee House (13th and Pine), and along the Schuylkill River Trail, with our final destination being the press conference at Dilworth Park.

Snap Kitchen will provide snacks and Zipcar will provide bike lights at all stations!

Energizer station coffee will generously be provided by The Last Drop and La Colombe!

Urban Stems will be providing flowers to build-your-own-bouquet at the Penn Museum station and offering blossoms at all stations.

Join Penn Museum cyclists at a photo and object station to take fun archaeologically-themed pictures, plus receive coupons for the museum’s Summer Nights concert series and enter to win free concert passes!

Our lead sponsor, Allegra Allergy, will provide samples of the product at all stations.
