Join the Main Line Bike Race This Sunday
All skill levels are welcome to ride in this community event.
Need a good excuse to get the family out for some exercise? The first annual Main Line Bike Race comes to Ardmore on Sunday, August 20, from 8 am to 4 pm, with all proceeds from fundraising efforts benefiting the Narberth Ambulance.
The bike loop is one mile long, suitable for bikers of all experience levels and ages, and can completed at your own pace or as part of a competition. There will be community races for children, as well as a food drive and other community-focused services.
The loop begins at the pedestrian crosswalk on Lancaster Avenue in between Anderson and Ardmore avenues, and proceeds down Rittenhouse Place to circle around Cricket Avenue and School Lane. With only six turns in the race and stretches of road between one and two blocks long, this race can easily be completed by all skill levels, and provides the opportunity to bike around downtown Ardmore safely.
Narberth Ambulance is a nonprofit and relies on donations to provide services, equipment maintenance, and emergency situation training to Lower Merion and Haverford townships, the borough of Narberth, and even Conshohocken.
Registration for this event ends on Friday, August 18 at 7 pm. To register or get more information, go to the race website.
