Come to the oldest, continuous cycling event in Philadelphia. The time trial on the West River Drive is free and informal. All skill levels are welcome. You race against your own time so equipment is not a limitation, but wear a helmet. Two distances: 8.35 and 4.7 miles on the closed West River Drive. First rider off at 7 A.M. and every thirty seconds thereafter. Kids must be accompanied by a responsible adult. Donít come if it is raining.


Ride at your own risk.

This event is self-sustained and is not sponsored by any person or entity.
