It’s Congressman Bob Brady to the rescue.
The Congressman will be hosting a series of meetings Friday in an effort to ensure that there’s a Philadelphia International Cycling Championship this year, said spokesman Ken Smukler.
Soon after David Chauner, founder of the famous annual event, announced that there would be no 2013 race due to a loss of sponsors and rising city costs, Brady immediately jumped into action.
Chauner, of Pro Cycling Tour, said he owes the city over $300,000 for last year’s race. It’s not clear how that debt will be paid for. Chauner said his lawyer, former City Councilman Daniel P. McElhatton, is handling that matter.
