This year's route starts at AIM Academy, just outside Philadelphia on the banks of the Schuylkill River. We'll cross the river six times and ride through the beautiful and historic West Laurel Hill Cemetery and Arboretum in Bala Cynwyd on our way in to the Philadelphia Museum of Art and back, along MLK Drive and the vibrant Main Street of Manayunk. We then head out to Evansburg State Park and beyond, through the farms, fields, and forests of Pennsylvania's Montgomery County to Upper Salford Park, near Old Pool Farm, the site of the annual Philadelphia Folk Festival.
