The HubBub Coffee Truck is on the move again! This weekend, we’ll be serving coffee from 8:00 am to 1:00 pm at the start of Philadelphia’s Bikes and Beers ride, sponsored by Yards.
Bikes and Beers is a national organization that coordinates rides in major cities that combine cycling with craft beer. Originating in San Diego, Bikes and Beers has now coordinated rides in Baltimore, San Diego, Wilmington, Salt Lake City, and Raleigh. Each ride partners with a local craft brewery, and raises funds to benefit a local cycling advocacy group. In Philadelphia, the ride has partnered with Yards Brewing Company to provide riders with the best in local craft beer.
Here in Philadelphia, cycling is a way of life, thanks in great part to the work done by the Bicycle Coalition of Greater Philadelphia. This strong advocacy organization is this year’s Bikes and Beers beneficiary; all of the money raised at the event will be donated to help the Bicycle Coalition continue to promote cycling as a healthy, low-cost, and environmentally friendly alternative to driving.
Established in 1972, the Bicycle Coalition of Greater Philadelphia has been making the city safer and more pleasant for cyclists for over 40 years. The work of the organization has led to a vast network of trails and bike lanes across the city, has made cycling safer by advocating better driver and rider behavior, and has engaged people who were interested in biking but were too afraid to start. All of this improves the overall quality of life in Philadelphia by making people and neighborhoods safer, healthier, and happier.
