Bike Expo on Friday

The Bicycle Coalition will be hosting a bicycle commuter expo from 12 - 1:30 PM featuring bicycles designed with commuters in mind, including bikes that can be folded up in thirty seconds and carried on a train, bikes with built-in fenders and lights for all weather riding as well as trailers for carrying small children to day care or school.

The Bicycle Coalition will be giving away Bike the Strike blinky lights and demonstrating techniques for safe night riding.

Two local companies will be displaying their bikes. Fuji Bicycles moved its world headquarters to Philadelphia in 2004. The Xootr Swift bike was designed by Wharton professor Karl Ulrich and is an update of the original custom made Swift Folder.

The bicycle expo will be a human-powered, congestion-free event. No automobiles will be used to carry supplies to the event.
