This Saturday, November 17th, make your way on down to the Water Works at noon for a stylish, leisurely ride through the union's most historical city! Filled with camaraderie, this ride is one of the most fun the city has to offer. For how relaxed the ride is, the competition between riders to win prizes provided by some generous local independent companies can really heat up. Riders are judged by tally against each other in the following categories: Most Magnificent Millinery, Most Marvelous Moustache, Most Stylish Steed, Most Snappy Lass, and Most Dapper Chap. Since you are already 16 days into No Shave November, don't be stingy on the moustache wax! There’s also a new prize for the most Picturesque Picnic, so come prepared with a lavish spread, a fun game, or other fine trappings! Additional prizes will be given out in a raffle.

This year the ride's organizers ask that all riders make a voluntary donation of only $1 to Philabundance in advance of the Thanksgiving and Holiday seasons. A single donation alone is able to provide 2 meals.The list of fabulous sponsors includes: Art in the Age of Mechanical Reproduction, Art Star, Briar Vintage, Community Bikes, Duke & Winston, Fabric Horse, Fairmount Bicycles, Maggie French Ethical Tweed Accessories, Philadelphia Salvage, R.E.Load Bags, RevivalSmith Vintage Goods, Rothera Cycling, Spodee, Trophy Bikes, Velo Orange, Volta Organics, and Zsa’s Gourmet Ice Cream.
