We’ve already covered rides that end at the Philly Bike Expo, don’t-miss workshops and panels, and a cool community conversation around equity in cycling.

Here are two other highlights of this weekend’s Philly Bike Expo:

  1. On Sunday, be sure to see our 10:30am screening of Motherload, a crowdsourced 2019 documentary about a new mother’s quest to understand the increasing isolation and disconnection of the digital age, its planetary impact, and how cargo bikes could be an antidote.
  2. On Friday, get in on the pre-party. Starting at 7pm, Philly Bike Expo vendors and friends will be gathering at Firth & Wilson Transport Cycles (1315 N Howard St, Philadelphia, PA). The party is open to all 21 years and above. Suggested donation at the door gets you Lagunitas beer, surprise cocktails, and BBQ pork on Honduran flatbread (while supplies last). Vegan options available. Giveaway entry and donations at the door support the Bicycle Coalition Youth Cycling development program open to all public Philadelphia high school students. Thanks to Philly Bike Expo, Lagunitas Brewing Company, Lost Bread Co., The International, and Firth & Wilson Transport Cycles for supporting this event.

Ashley Vogel


After graduating from Swarthmore College, Ashley moved to Philadelphia to work in nonprofit development and communications as a Philly Fellow. She was introduced to the Bicycle Coalition’s work in her first week of the fellowship through an Urban Riding Basics class. She did not take up bicycling in the city until getting involved with the Women Bike PHL community, which catalyzed her to shed her fear of riding in traffic and get on a bike. Ashley’s bike has served as a powerful tool, and she is excited to share the healing and empowering nature of bicycling with others. You can find Ashley riding her blue Breezer to the Headhouse farmer’s market, or her Fuji Sportif when she’s road racing as an alum of the Women Bike PHL Racing Development program.
