SAVE THE DATE!

For BCP's display tent & Members' Appreciation Nights at the Friday Night Races at the Velodrome: 6/23, 7/28, and 8/25.

BCP will be there on June 23, July 28 and August 25 to promote our club's upcoming events, including but not limited to the Scenic Schuylkill Century on Sunday, September 10. We will be greeting visitors and answering their questions about BCP's rides & events, and about cycling in & around Philadelphia. If you've never been there, these races are enjoyable and exciting for cyclists of all levels of interest. They are also fun family outings, drawing 2000 spectators from a wide travel radius.

If you are able to attend on any of these dates, please stop by the BCP tent to say hello to our volunteers. If you can volunteer some time at the BCP tent, please contact Linda McGrane (see below). Volunteer assistance is appreciated for set-up, greeting visitors, and for clean-up.

Because of the shape of the track, ALL seats provide excellent views of the cyclists and the races. Snacks, light dinner platters, and beverages can be purchased on-site at the Breakaway Cafe.

MEMBERS' APPRECIATION NIGHT: Stay tuned for updates, re. arranging special perks for club members.

What's on the program? For 6/23: UCI Festival of Speed, with sprint matches. Off the track, the Cafe will be offering special promotions on food & beverages. A live band will perform music in the plaza. All race programs are family-friendly; the Velodrome also has a mascot for the kids. Race details are available here. These events are part of Bicycling Magazine's World Series.
