Cycling for Our Future

August 30 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Learn more about the health and environmental benefits of biking and trail use, and the latest updates on the Chester Valley Trail system!

Bike riding is not only a fantastic way to improve your physical and mental health, but also the health of the planet! Unlike cars, bikes do not release harmful emissions, nor do they require harmful chemicals (like antifreeze). Moreover, the development of roads requires the destruction of green space, and creates water runoff that contributes to ground and water pollution. Riding a bike reduces traffic and noise pollution, improving mental health and communities.

Philadelphia is the top bicycle commuting city of the nation’s 10 biggest cities. The Bicycle Coalition of Greater Philadelphia is working to improve bicycling in the eight Pennsylvania and New Jersey counties surrounding Philadelphia, including Chester County, by building the Circuit Trails.

Join Patrick Monahan, Regional Organizer for the Bicycle Coalition of Greater Philadelphia to learn more about the health and environmental benefits of biking and trail use, and the latest updates on the Chester Valley Trail system!

This event will take place in-person in Room 222. BYO lunch.
