The Flyers’ Brad Marsh with Bicycle Coalition Development Director Alan Spooner

Brad Marsh, a defenseman with the Flyers from 1981 to 1988, was one of the last players not to wear a helmet in the NHL. But he’s an advocate for cycling in Philadelphia today — and he even wears a helmet on his rides.

In addition to his duties as President of the Flyers Alumni Association and Flyers Director of Community Development, Marsh is the impetus behind the new Toyota Flyer’s Charity Classic debuting this Sunday.

“The Classic is going to be the event!” he said. “With a walk, run, and three ‘choose your distance’ ride events –there is something for everyone. Being an avid cyclist, I really want to have more bike riders than runners and walkers. And with ride support, rolling closures, marshals and rest stops – this event is a great way to showcase safe riding in the city.”

The Bicycle Coalition and Cadence Youth Cycling are beneficiaries of the ride – and there’s still time to register for the event and join our team (if you act now – the deadline is tomorrow at midnight). This ride is family-friendly!

Or, if you would be interested in volunteering and receiving a t- shirt, swag bag, lunch and our heartfelt thanks for your support of this new milestone in Philly cycling, please sign up here.

Volunteers are needed to help out with the bike valet and act as marshals. Shifts are from 7AM – 11AM and 10:30 AM – 2 PM.

We hope to see you this Sunday!
