BRINGING THE COMMUNITY TOGETHER!

With the first ever Main Line Bike Race, we are striving to bring our communities together for many years to come. With major support from Lower Merion Township, our team has organized a Criterium style bike race, consisting of a one-mile loop through the business district of Ardmore, including Lancaster Avenue. This exciting race loop will be completed by racers dozens of times each race. It will continue throughout the day for hours of excitement for a projected thousand spectators. There will be community races for the children, a food donation drive that will benefit local non-profits, and many more community-focused opportunities.
