2018 ReLoad April Fools Fun Ride

It's almost spring, and that means it's time once more for one of Philadelphia's most fun bike events: The R.E.Load April Fools Fun Ride

Now in it's 14th iteration, the AFFR is basically a huge, city-wide scavenger hunt through Philadelphia. Riders will stop at various checkpoints, performing goofy, fun tasks and collecting points along the way. Some checkpoints are bars, some are parks, some are local businesses that support cycling. Typically, we've had all sorts of riders take part in this event - from messengers, to families on tandems and cargo bikes, to more casual riders. We're proud to have one of the longest running messenger events be so inclusive. Seriously, whether you're in it to win it, or just down for a nice leisurely ride to a few spots, you're guaranteed to have a blast!

WE will show YOU how to go about achieving these absolutely acheivable things with your own two grubby grabbers and wildly enthusiastic will. 

we'll have some wares available, if there might be need, but otherwise this celebration of dedication to the most elegant form of transportation there is, is a whopping $0. 

disclaimer: we can't guarantee to have every bit or bob, relieve every plight, present answers for every lil puzzler, but we can and will certainly try our darndest
