Bicycle Coalition Offering Classes, Bike-In Movie As Part Of Wolf Cycles Grand Opening
  

JULY 25, 2012. PHILADELPHIA, PA. This Saturday the Bicycle Coalition of Greater Philadelphia will be offering free bicycle workshops and an outdoor movie as part of the grand opening of Wolf Cycles on Lancaster Ave. Included in the twelve-hour event will be an urban riding basics class, an art bike ride tour through Fairmount Park, a workshop on bicyclists' rights when involved in a crash, and an outdoor showing of the BMX bike movie "Rad."

 

These activities are part of the Bicycle Coalition's ongoing series of free workshops designed to teach adults and children how to ride bicycles, and get new riders more comfortable navigating Philadelphia streets.

 

"We provide workplaces and community centers with workshops on learning how to ride a bike, or how to feel more confident biking in the city," said Diana Owens Steif, the Bicycle Coalition's Director of Education. "It's a natural extension of that outreach to bring these workshops to a community event like the Wolf Cycles opening."

 

Event location:

Wolf Cycles
4311 Lancaster Ave
Philadelphia, PA 19104

 

Date:

Saturday, July 28, 2012

2:00 pm - 2:00 am

 

The event is titled "Dances With Wolves," and marks the re-opening of the long-tenured Wolff Cycles bicycle shop, which has existed on Lancaster Ave since 1932. The new owners, who also own Firehouse Bicycles at 50th & Baltimore, have dropped one 'F' from the name. The event will also feature food, art and music. The event is free and open to the public, but concessions will cost money.
