What's Happening: Shake Shack's 40-mile bike ride

The ever-popular Shake Shack that touts some of the best burgers and fries in town sure seems like it’s only committed to clogging your arteries, right? You couldn’t be more wrong — the Shack is also committed to your health.

That’s why they created the Shack Track and Field program, a city running club that meets one a month at the University City Shack. The runs are open to all ages and abilities and typically last between 45 minutes and an hour. Of course, it certainly doesn’t hurt that this fan favorite ends with beers, burgers and fries. Hey, you deserve it! (Schedule below.) 

But now, Shack Track and Field is taking their program to the next level — on wheels. This Saturday, December 7th, Shake Shack Center City is teaming up with Breakaway Bikes to launch their first ever bike ride! Starting at 8:30 a.m. at Breakaway Bikes (1923 Chestnut Street), cyclists can join a fun, novice-oriented 40-mile ride out to Ambler, then end at Shake Shack for burgers, fries, and a free Victory brew.

Not down for a 40-mile bike ride? Come by the Shack anyway! Breakaway Bikes will be offering free bike checks from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. with Victory beer floats plus a raffle for a basket of swag from Breakaway, Victory and Shake Shack.

So now there’s no excuse — next time you’re craving a burger, pick your poison (bike or run) before you scarf down those extra calories!

The rundown: On the second Tuesday of the month, ST&F runs will begin at 7 p.m. Philadelphia Runner’s West Philly location (3621 Walnut Street) and end at Shake Shack University City (3200 Chestnut Street)
