On Sunday, October 5, from 1:00 to 3:30 p.m., cyclists will have the opportunity to explore the Manayunk Towpath and Fairmount Park. Refreshments will be served at the Canoe Club, a private boating club that stands at the confluence of the Wissahickon and Schuylkill Rivers.

The Bike Tour departs from the West Entrance of the Philadelphia Museum of Art at 1:00 p.m., and costs $3.00 for adults, and $1.00 for children (note: the Bike Tour may be too lengthy for children under 10). No pre-registration is required for this "rain or shine" event. Refreshments are included, and souvenir tee-shirts are available for an additional cost of $7.00. Helmets are recommended!
