Group Ride Meet-Ups

Group rides have the potential to spring up from time to time—whether for a good reason, or a sad one—and, often, it’s important those rides attract as many people as possible.

In the wake of Emily Fredrick’s death on her bicycle in December 2017, a fellow cyclist came to the Bicycle Coalition and suggested a way to make group rides easier.

Or, more specifically, getting to group rides.

The cyclist noted that it’s often difficult for cyclists to get to group rides — especially when those rides begin and end in Center City. He suggested a series of meet-up spots in Philly neighborhoods that will allow cyclists to meet up beforehand and ride together, which will not only help cyclists meet each other, but creates a “safety in numbers” atmosphere. This is not only safer for cyclists, but encourages more cyclists who are not necessarily as experienced, to participate.

Below, find the Bicycle Coalition’s Suggested* Meet-Up Spots for Future Group Rides. Use this page when you’re headed to a group ride, anywhere in the city, from your neighborhood. Our recommendation: Meet at these spots about an hour before the time each group ride is scheduled to begin.
