If all the bikes in Philadelphia, PA hit the streets at the same time, you'd have the world's biggest pedal-powered urban safari. The City of Brotherly Love always welcomes bicycle lovers, so get your wheels out of self storage and ready to explore the best cityscape in Delaware Valley.
Baby Your Bike
Before you hit Philly's 435-mile network of dedicated lanes, baby that bike in your storage unit. Give it a good sponge bath with a biodegradable cleaner, inspect the brakes, and gauge tire pressure. Enlist a buddy to help test the drivetrain by raising and spinning the rear wheel while you shift gears. Take your well-tuned bike for a quick run around the block to be sure that it's ready for tour-adventure duty.
Make Fitness Fun
Bicycle for fun, but do it with fitness in mind. Our city's flat terrain makes it easy to navigate all 57 miles of trails that wind through Wissahickon Park. Take a relaxing ride on the healthy side of fun along Ridley Creek, or lap up the landscape as you pedal along the Schuylkill River Trail. The scenery is terrific, and the ride offers some of the best exercise you can get in 60 minutes.
Coast Through History
Explore Philadelphia's historic Revolutionary War sites from the comfort of your seat as you pedal through Valley Forge Park. Go solo, or join an organized tour that starts at Independence Mall and cruises past more than 10 celebrated city sites in just a few hours. Coast by Ben Franklin's home on your way to the Liberty Bell, and marvel at how much better history looks when you're riding a bike.
Sizzle Down South Street
Whether you're thirsty for a bike-fueled pub crawl or hungry for a fabulous food tour, South Street is your road to authentic Philly fun. Go with the gang, or conquer it alone, but start by exploring local taverns, favorite pubs and craft breweries. Bike responsibly, and then park for a hearty hoagie, choice cheesesteak or square pizza. Be sure to order some potato candy to snack on as you pedal back home.
You never run out of places to go and things to do when you bike around Philadelphia. You also never run out of great storage options for those wheels when you pedal to the nearest Safeguard Self Storage location.
From Germantown Avenue to Hunting Park, we're proud to be a part of your favorite bike-loving cityscape.
