Dear Bicyclist,
 
Please join me at our annual meeting on Sunday or at one of our other events coming up, including the return of volunteer night, the first Pennsylvania Bike Summit and, my favorite, a bike ride IN the zoo.

As many of you may have read, the TD Bank Philadelphia International Cycling Championship is experiencing financial hardship. To demonstrate community support for this celebration of bicycling in Philadelphia, I hope you will join me in purchasing tickets or posters before Monday.

Enjoy a great weekend for riding!
