BRITISH BIKE WEEKEND RETURNS–Oct. 16-17-18 , 2015

The GGBW started out in 1996 as a nostalgic event for riders of classic English roadster 3-speed bicycles, and did pretty well for years, even getting some serious press from the Philadelphia Inquirer HERE.   For 2015, we’re opening things up a bit and inviting owners of new machines to attend: That means Brompton folders, Moulton Spaceframes, and of course, the shiny new Pashley roadsters that look as if they rolled straight out of a 1930s factory. If you own an older bicycle, an F-frame Moulton, say, or a Raleigh Supercourse, Clubman or Tourist, we’d like to see you. Ditto if you’re pedaling a Bickerton, Lenton Sports or BSA. If it’s made in the UK and it pedals, the British Bike Weekend will offer you a ride, a cup of tea and something stronger during the Great British Bike & Pub Crawl which starts Saturday afternoon. On Saturday morning, we’ll pay visits by bicycle to three Philadelphia shops with strong UK connections: Via Bicycle, Firth & Wilson, and Trophy Bikes. All events start/finish close to center city Philadelphia.   Please visit/like/share our Facebook Event page for a full schedule and to RSVP! Oh, and please note that workshops are open to all, but for our rides, we ask that you be aboard an English-made bicycle; thanks for your cooperation in that respect.

With Kind Regards, — Michael McGettigan / Trophy Bikes, LLC

"It is with deep regret that I must declare that My Holiness cannot be part of this Saturday's Secular -- aka !
As a forward-thinking bike shop, utilizes any and all advertising media modalities to reach our target demographic: in this case , @upenngapsa and @uofpenn students walking along the 4500 Block of Pine Street. We know Ivy League cyclists need a shop that's available at the start and finish of their long days!
Fun Facts: 1) These nasty little signs (16th below Locust St., W. side) are illegal code violations. 2) If they cut your lock, etc., it's a crime. 3) Probably simple to use a nutdriver to remove them and reinstall them face in. 3B) The metal they're made of feels flimsy and easy to bend. 4) PHL Streets/311 will be sending an inspector out shortly.
BEHOLD! This rig helped us get this classic Billy Preston (who brought his punchy keyboard style to the Beatles' hit "Get Back", among others) vinyl back to where it once belonged: 4 zip ties, 1 foam spacer--and done.
This PCC (Presidents Conference Car) came out in 1947. So did Andrew Ritchie, who grew up to design and manufacture the Brompton folder bicycle. Today, Brompton Bicycle Limited's machines are fitting seamlessly with transit all over the world.  This, @septaphilly Car , was renovated 2002-2004 and serves the Rte. 15 Line, whizzing along Girard Avenue, not far from !
