Directions to the Ride (not everyone will know how to get there)
There should be
plenty of street parking in the general vicinity of the ride's
starting point, Philadelphia Brewing Company (2439 Amber Street,
19125) in Kensington. Please do not park in the lot opposite the PBC
entrance. Be mindful that this is a residential neighborhood and
we’re meeting early on a Saturday when many people will still be
sleeping.
All riders will need to check-in upon arrival. Please arrive early
enough that you don’t hold up the start of the ride for others. The
long ride departs promptly at 8:30AM, and the short ride leaves at
9:00AM. We advise you arrive 45 minutes prior to your departure time.
Remember to wear a helmet. Bring a water bottle that you will be able
to refill from our coolers throughout the day. We will also have FOOD
MOXIE water bottles available for sale that morning (cash/check only).
There will be plenty of fruit and other snacks (nuts, energy bars,
pretzels, etc.) but you may want to pack something more substantial if
you're concerned about running out of energy before we get to the
pizza.
Ride Description (terrain-hills, etc.,scenic points, stops)
For the 12th year
in a row, farms throughout Philadelphia are opening their gates for
cyclists on Saturday, September 9th as they pedal through the city in
celebration of urban agriculture as part of the Urban Farm Bike Ride
(UFBR). Hosted by Weavers Way Co-op and presented by Lindy
Communities, all funds raised through the UFBR go to support Food
Moxie's farm and nutrition education programs!

There are two routes riders can choose from — one clocks in at 23.7
miles and the other at 28.8 — and each winds through
Philadelphia’s streets, stopping to explore urban agricultural sites
and chat with some of the farmers who help maintain the city’s
vibrant farm landscape.  We begin and end at Philadelphia Brewing
Company (PBC). We start the day off right with healthy trail mix and
iced coffee supplied by Equal Exchange, and end it with a beer and
pizza party, thanks to PBC and local pizza shops! Ticket includes
tour, t-shirt, snacks/water along the route, and after party beer and
pizza! Join us as we celebrate Philadelphia’s thriving farm
ecosystem!
Other Information
Tickets are $47 until 9/8
