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
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
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
