I am just two months away from leaving for the summer! Since my last blog, I have received my bike, continued fundraising, and have been preparing for my journey. With the expense of buying all new gear, clothes, and accessories for the trip, I reached out to local Philadelphia cycling shops.
Fairmount Bicycles, specifically Shelly, immediately and enthusiastically responded. She generously offered up a list of items that I need for my ride and welcomed my visit to their shop whenever I could.
Having never cycled long distance before, Shelly was able to answer all of my questions and recommended different products based on my needs. And she donated a cool silver helmet, water bottle holder, and a Fairmount Bicycles water bottle that I’m sure will get much use!
Fairmount Bicycles is located at 2015 Fairmount Ave (also opening a new location at 28th & Girard Ave ) and you can visit them online here.
Thanks Shelly and Fairmount Bicycles!
