On Saturday, May 18, 2013, Center City District and Bicycle Coalition of Greater Philadelphia will host the First Annual “SAFETY FIRST” bicycle ride on the streets of Center City Philadelphia to express the importance of bicycle safety while raising money for the continuing education and awareness of bicycle safety. Proceeds will go to support youth programs at Neighborhood Bike Works and the Philadelphia Police Athletic League, to purchase needed bicycles for Center City District and the Philadelphia Police Explorers, and to continue the educational efforts by the Bicycle Coalition of Greater Philadelphia.
This ride is open to all ages and riding skills. The cyclists will be escorted by police officers assigned to Center City District and a Bicycle Ambassador from the Bicycle Coalition of Greater Philadelphia. All traffic regulations and laws will be followed and enforced.
The ride will start at 9:00AM at Washington Square Park at 6th & Walnut Streets. During and after the ride, Center City District will have personnel selling raffles for prizes, passing out giveaways, and assisting citizens who are interested in registering with the Philadelphia Police Department B.I.K.E. Program.
