Family Rides

Now that my child has learned safe bicycling practices, where can we ride? Philadelphia has many exciting and different options for riding; we have trails and bike lanes, all of which are fun and easy to ride on regularly! The Schuylkill River Trail (SRT),  Delaware Valley’s largest multi-use trail, follows along the Schuylkill River up to Valley Forge and hopefully soon it will stretch even farther! The great thing about the SRT is how it connects to a lot of other trails in the area. It connects to the Perkiomen Trail, the Valley Forge Trail Network, PA Bicycle Route S, Audubon Loop Trail, Norristown State Farm Park Route A/B, the Wissahickon Bikeway, East Coast Greenway, and soon the Cobb’s Creek Trail! Just think how many places you and your child can explore on bike from the SRT! If you are interested in participating in organized rides with your child, there are many kid friendly rides that happen in the Delaware Valley! Check out Connect the Circuit’s website to plan a trip on 250 miles of existing trail, find out about 50 miles that are moving towards completion, and learn how you can help connect the full 750 miles of The Circuit. The Philadelphia area has many bike clubs, which organize rides on a regular basis that you and your child can check out! For a list of the bike clubs in your area, please click here. Also, check out the BCGP Events Calendar for a complete listing of upcoming rides in the area!
