May is Bike Month!

The Bicycle Coalition of Philadelphia (bicyclecoalition.org) promotes ”the bicycle as an environmentally friendly, healthy, and economical form of transportation and recreation through advocacy and education.” May is Bike Month, last week was Bike Week, and this Wednesday, May 21st is the global Ride of Silence, an annual ride in honor of cyclists injured or killed on the public roadways (rideofsilence.org). According to Sam Tremble of the Philadelphia Weekly, “in the last 12 months, six cyclists have been killed on the road in the Philadelphia area”, so join local cyclists in this moving memorial, beginning at the Art Museum steps at 6:45 pm.
