There are only 5 days left to RSVP for the Bicycle Coalition’s biggest fundraiser of the year: Our Annual Gala and Awards Dinner.

My staff has planned an incredible evening which will include an awards presentation honoring bike advocates from all across the region, lively libations, a plated meal from Feast Your Eyes catering, plus a fantastic bike auction full of fun donated items from generous partners.

I hope you can join us. Not only to support the organization that is the voice for cyclists in our region, but also to be a part of this unique celebration of two-wheeled life.

Sarah’s foray into trail and bicycle advocacy began in 2004 when she became involved in the “Free Schuylkill River Park” campaign to preserve public access to the Schuylkill River Trail in Center City, now known as Schuylkill Banks. Since joining the Bicycle Coalition in 2006, she has been a key player in the Bicycle Coalition’s key accomplishments: the $23 million TIGER trail-building grant; naming and building out the Circuit; lobbying successfully for legislation mandating the inclusion of bike parking in new construction projects; Philadelphia’s Complete Streets policy; and coordinating research and analysis of several reports on bicycling in Philadelphia.
