Philadelphia is often a punchline...we're that city between NYC and DC. Our sports teams often lose big, we blew the 1976 bicentennial, our politcians are some of the most corrupt in the nation and we're best known for attacking Santa Clause (which is actually one of the things I love best about Philly!). Only in Philadelphia could Rocky be a more important boxer than Bernard Hopkins or Joe Frazier.
In short, we're a city that rarely gets it's due.
Well my fellow C and V bike fans...most of you are well educated, intelligent, thoughtful folks who are concientious people. You're the best overall group of folks I've found. WE, Philadelphia...WANT YOU! We're one of the best places for cycling in the country (I'd say THE BEST, but I'm biased), we have more parks and trees than nearly any other urban environment...we have arts, music, food...EVERYTHING. Bonus...we have a huge number of universities, schools, tech sectors...we have it all, with low property taxes and low rent/home values (comparatively). Come here for the cycling, stay for everything else.
