GearingUp Bagel Ride Recap April 08 2014

If you missed GearingUp's Bagel Ride on Sunday you'll have to wait until next year. They only hold it once a year. It's a chance to enlighten people of their mission and gain some volunteer support. The sunny crisp morning made for ideal riding conditions for over eighty participants, more than double the attendees on any previous rides according to Kristin Gavin of GearingUp. The casual ride took off at Fairmount Bicycles, up to Chamonix Mansion in Fairmount Park,  then back through the city finishing at our shop where a pile of bagels, some fresh baked goods, and a tower of coffee awaited hungry riders. In addition to the GearingUp volunteers, the folks at Wash Cycle Laundry,  the Bicycle Coalition of Greater Philadelphia, and Fairmount Bicycles deserve a big hand for all their hard work to make the morning a success. This event kicked off the beginning of many we'll be involved with this season.
