Gear Up for the Philly Bike Expo

If you’re a biker, you should feel right at home at your Dalian on the Park apartment. Our bike storage offers you the convenience of not having to stow away your equipment inside your apartment, as well as the peace of mind to know your bicycle is securely stored under lock and key. You can easily grab your bike whenever you need to head out to work, do some errands or just get in some exercise in our bicycle-friendly neighborhood. This month, break your bike out of storage and zoom over to the Pennsylvania Convention Center for a weekend full of hands-on bicycle education and exciting entertainment.

The Philly Bike Expo returns Nov. 2 and 3, providing a well-rounded lineup of events for cyclists of all abilities and experiences. The expo features vendors distributors, framebuilders, those selling accessories and apparel, bike-repair shops and tools, manufacturers, riding groups and advocacy organizations—for a grand total of nearly 200 exhibitors! Grab a new helmet, learn about the latest technology in cycling, connect with a new group of local riders and research your next ride, all in one afternoon (or two, if you opt for a weekend pass!).

Apart from strolling the expo floor, attendees can stop into nearly two-dozen seminars, workshops and demos. Hear about new DIY techniques for getting the best bike fit, find out what to consider when upgrading your tires, get tips on prepping for a long-distance ride or take a yoga class designed specifically for cyclists. If you fancy yourself an amateur bike mechanic, put your skills to the test in the just-for-fun Beat the Pros series, where you can go head to head with pro mechanics for bragging rights and some awesome prizes.

The expo also provides excellent opportunities for socializing with other bike enthusiasts. You can pick their brains about any cycling challenges you’ve faced, or just add a few new contacts to the list of local folks you can hit up for a cycling adventure. And it’s all just a half-mile from your 1500 Locust apartment—so grab your bike and head over (there’s free indoor bicycle storage!) for a crash course on all things cycling.
