Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Recommended shops in Philly?

I'm going to be in Philadelphia on the weekend -- what are the shops to check out? I'm looking for stuff like cycling shorts, saddles, helmets. Who's got the best selection?

Thanks!

If you've got a thick wallet try Cadence in Manayunk on Main Street. Lots of NIIICEEE equipment in there...

Bicycle Therapy on 23rd and South is having their big Spring sale this weekend, I'd start there. They're also a great shop in general.

Thanks!
For what you're looking for there's a Performance on Bethlehem Pike...

As far as neat shops though, Bikyle is a good place to go for a variety of frames to drool at. More interesting selection than Cadence if you ask me...

Breakaway is in mid-town on Chestnut Street. They're okay but they sponsor my girl's team, hence the mention.

Anything out near Media, PA? I'll be there (coincidentally also from Toronto) from Monday-Wednesday.

Here you go,

Cycle Sport
801 North Providence Road
Media, PA 19063

https://www.cyclesportmedia.com/

Not familiar with it, I've shopped at one just down the road from Swarthmore, near Media.
