I hope that this day will become an annual event, and replace the other eves throughout the year. With the trucks rolling into The Armory as I write this and the show taking form, you need to know that this will be the place to be this weekend. There are some fun events that are taking place within the confines of the expo that I hope you will check out.

The first event to check out for the weekend is the South Philly Costume Crit. The race with a Lemans style start will require some fancy skills and some big legs to ride crit style over various types of surfaces in and around the Tennis Courts and Recycling center in South Philly. The race entry fee is $5 and that gets the first 25 folks who sign up some hotdogs, beer, and other goodies. The racers are vying for some glory but also for an all access pass for the Bike Expo.

The fashion showcase will happen on Mischief might (Saturday the 30th) The show will start around 6 or so and continue till a bit later in the night. Get your butt over the First Unitarian Church at 22nd and Chestnut (there are bike lanes from the armory to there) The PBE Fashion Showcase will present current products from small, handmade designers to nationally known brands. With a list of designers this long, there is something for everyone. I am excited to check out all of the talent that will be up in the church this night.
The Philly Bike Messenger Association is throwing down with some gold sprints at Bonner’s Irish Pub around 8pm. It will be going on messenger time, so if you have some Halloween parties to go to first, I am sure you could still catch some of the action.

I am excited to check out the building skills of the fastest mechanic in Philadelphia. Who will wear the crown and end up with the SRAM groupo that is on the line. The mechanic that could build a road bike the quickest will be the king or queen of the bike mechanics. Make sure you are at the Armory at noon for this competition.

Of course, there is always the great Spooky Cross event that you should make it out to on Sunday afteroon. Check out the post i did about it here.

Remember, there will be tickets at the door of the event. They stop selling the pre reg tonight at midnight. Check PBE for more details.
