On Friday, August 12, Cadence Youth Cycling, a program of the Bicycle Coalition of Greater Philadelphia, led a ride for Philadelphia City Council staff.

The ride was meant to show Council staff the positive and negative aspects of Philadelphia’s bicycle infrastructure.

The youth cyclists also wanted Council staff to know how difficult it can be to navigate around hectic motor vehicle drivers.

On the ride were Cadence athletes Coleman Milligan, Quyseam Rivera, Mya Miller, Ryan Breslin, and Fard McFadden.

The ride covered five miles of city streets and trails. Eight Council staffers followed the athletes around Center City and down MLK Drive.

See the video, created by Bicycle Coalition of Greater Philadelphia intern Marina Stuart, for details:

The Bicycle Coalition and Cadence Youth Athletes thank those Council and Mayoral staffers who came out on the ride, and listened to the students’ concerns about their streets.
