1 Year Celebration & In the Saddle Bike Drive

We did it! Year one is in the books and we want to celebrate with all of y'all!

Come on by to eat some pizza, drink some non-alcoholic beverages, get your bike fixed (for free!) and reminisce on what a crazy (and amazing) year 2016 was for all of us.

If you have any old bikes laying around, bring them in to donate to In The Saddle Philly, a new non-profit using bikes as a tool for recovery (www.inthesaddlephilly.org). This is a tax deductible donation, AND we'll even give you 15% off all bikes, parts and accessories we have in stock.

We are excited at how succesful our first year was, but we are even more excited about how great year two will be. 

Thanks so much to everyone who walked in through the doors, all of our incredible community partners, and all our friends and family out there that made opening this shop possible.

Each rider hits as many checkpoints as they choose, stopping at each to partake in a fun activity. We will be introducing a slew of new checkpoints this year, and off-road destinations will be in the mix, so we encourage cyclocross bikes! Women's and Men's podium finishers will be determined through a combination of checkpoints reached within time cut-offs and arrival time at the finish. *As a special bonus, there will be an Omnium weekend podium with overall winners of NoScrubsCX and Crossed Out: https://www.facebook.com/events/1770133299906053/

Please keep in mind that this event is ALL AGES, so please bring your best family friendly attitude and composure for the fun of all involved!

This is an unsanctioned and fun event, where YOU are WHOLLY RESPONSIBLE for you. Please make smart decisions and ride safely. 

The race will end at Neighborhood Bike Works for a rockin after party.
