Description

This might not be ‘Tour de France,’ but the Philadelphia International Championship is the biggest and most prestigious cycling competition in the United States. If you are at all familiar with this sport, you will recognize such names as George Hincapie, Lace Armstrong and Taylor Phinney. These world-known cyclists started their successful careers here. Hundreds of national and international professional cyclists compete in this event with over 100,000 spectators attending it annually. It is a 156-mile race through the streets of Philadelphia, including the ultra-steep Manayunk Wall. You can enjoy live music, great food, shopping, and learn about fitness techniques and healthy diets. While attendance is free, you can purchase a special VIP ticket, which will give you a chance to meet the racers, get catered food and beverages, great seats and transportation to the Manayunk Wall. Another great feature of the event is the Expo, where you can buy all kinds of cycling equipment. Kick off your summer in a healthy, entertaining and dynamic way at the Philadelphia International Championship!
