Looking for something to do to escape the hustle, bustle, and traffic jams of the Democratic National Convention? Then save Wednesday, July 27 at 6:30pm for the Ride DNC - Broad St. Ride. Created by Alexandria Schneider, the organizer of the 2015 PopeRide and Maria Serrahima of the Philly Naked Bike Ride.
Departing from from the intersection of Broad St and Cheltenham Ave., in Elkins Park. The route is very simple, ride the length of Broad St. to FDR Park for an after party. If you can’t make it to the start of the ride there will be designated meetups along Broad St. so you can join in at any point along the route.
What makes this ride unique from all of the activities happening at and near the DNC, it’s apolitical. The ride has no affiliation with any candidate, political party, or viewpoint. Instead the organizers have proclaimed; “This ride is a peaceful event to celebrate the political process, and the role the people play in that. It is not a political protest. Neither the organizers nor the ride are officially affiliated with any parties, candidates, platforms, or issues.”
So if you are looking for a break from all of the madness and excitement surrounding the Democratic National Convention. Take a moment to enjoy the simple things in life, like a bike ride through Philadelphia.
