Join Our Solstice Bike Ride This Friday

It's good, but that winged fairy horse is standing in the way of the sun. Move, winged fairy horse!

When you do a Google image search for “summer solstice” imagery, this is the kind of thing you get. (“Summer Solstice” by Leashe on Deviantart, if you’re into winged fairy horses).

We are organizing a series of bike rides and trail walks this summer as a benefit of membership and a way for people to explore Circuit trails in our region. The first is this Friday!

Join us for a bike ride up the Schuylkill River Trail to Manayunk to check out the Manayunk Summer Solstice celebration. The forecast calls for a high in the low 80’s and overcast: great bicycling weather! We will ride up in time to see the bonfires on the water.

Bicycle Coalition members: register for the ride and use the promo code Benefits2014 to get a free ticket.

When: Friday, June 20th
What: Bicycle Coalition membership ride up the Schuylkill River Trail
Time: 5:00 – 7:00 PM1
Who: Riders of all abilities. Must bring your own bike and helmet. For existing and new members only.

Not yet a member? Buying a $20 ticket to the ride doubles as a special 1-year membership deal. Membership supports our work and comes with an increasing list of benefits. Support better, safer bicycling our region by becoming a member and joining us for a Friday evening bike ride!

This is the first in a series of Explore the Circuit events happening all summer and fall. See the full list here.
