Philly Bike Ride works with local officials to disrupt traffic minimally. Drivers are encouraged to adjust travel time around the bike course nonetheless.

  • Philly Bike Ride will bring thousands of participants to Philly, in addition to spectators, family, and friends.
  • To get the most out of your weekend and minimize stress, we encourage the public to be aware of the impacted roads in your area and plan for an alternate route or added travel time.
  • Join the festivities! Philly residents are encouraged to enjoy the free Finish Festival at the Eakins Oval, in front of the Art Museum, from 9:00 am to 12:30 pm.


The route starts on Benjamin Franklin Pkwy and ends by the Eakins Oval, in front of the Art Museum. Event officials advise the public that temporary, intermittent street closings will be in effect on Saturday, October 15, 2022, starting at 3:30 am. Philadelphia Police Department will handle traffic pattern alterations and enforce moving violations.

Unessential travel should be avoided in all areas affected by the event. Philly residents must review the course map and road closures grid to confirm desired routes availability and identify alternative streets to get around the ride route.

Streets will re-open on a rolling basis as soon as the last participant has passed. Public safety officials are committed to re-opening streets along the route as quickly as it is safe to do so. All streets will be re-opened by 12:00 pm – except closings near the finish area.
