Cyclists and volunteers come together to honor cancer survivors, spread awareness about reducing cancer risk, and raise funds for the American Cancer Society. The Philly Naked Bike Ride is officially scheduled for August, but unfortunately, there will be no professional cycling race in Philadelphia this year. This has caused fear among cycling advocates and companies that travel the famous Manayunk route that the race may be gone for good. In the past four years, more than 200 workplaces and over 2000 people in the Philadelphia area have taken part in the event. On September 11th, 2020, cyclists from the National Memorial Trail Alliance completed a 700-mile journey to Philadelphia.
This was a long-awaited event for many people who don't like to ride bikes when it's hot. The Clean Air Council is hosting the Cycle September Challenge in Philadelphia for the fifth consecutive year. The route was designed by Mike Krizauskas from BCP, SCU and the Jersey Shore Cycle Club and was originally planned to coincide with the Blueberry Festival in Hammonton, the blueberry capital of the world. The number of people participating in cycling events in Philadelphia is growing every year. The Philly Naked Bike Ride alone has seen an increase of over 1000 participants since its inception. The Cycle September Challenge has also seen an increase in participation, with over 2000 people taking part in 2020.
This shows that cycling events are becoming increasingly popular in Philadelphia. The city of Philadelphia is also taking steps to make cycling more accessible. The city has implemented bike lanes on many of its streets and has also created bike-share programs to make it easier for people to get around. This has made it easier for people to participate in cycling events and has helped to increase participation. The number of people participating in cycling events in Philadelphia is a testament to the city's commitment to promoting healthy lifestyles and encouraging physical activity. It is also a sign that cycling is becoming increasingly popular in the city.
With more people participating in cycling events, it is likely that more professional races will be held in Philadelphia in the future.
