Annual Gala & Awards Dinner
The Bicycle Coalition’s Fifth Annual Gala and Awards Dinner will be held on Thursday, October 4th 2018 at FAME (Feast at MaKen Events) from 6pm to 9pm.
In addition to raising money to provide our youth cycling program athletes with new opportunities, our annual fete celebrates our region’s cycling advocates and supports our efforts to make Philadelphia and the surrounding counties a great place to bike.
This year Don Smolenski, president of the Philadelphia Eagles, will be honored with the Maguire Award.
City Managing Director Mike DiBerardinis will be presented with the Connect The Circuit Award; Caitlin Thompson, founder of Philadelphia’s chapter of girls mountain bike team Little Bellas, will be presented with the Youth Cycling Award by special guest Jeremy Powers, 4x National Cyclocross Champion.
