Area Bike Riding:

There are many pre-Tour rides in the beautiful Brandywine/Delaware Valley area.

For something different, consider riding the bike trail from Valley Forge to Center City Philadelphia. Park at Valley Forge Visitor Center, then ride across the river on Sullivan cycling/pedestrian bridge, and continue on the Schuylkill Trail into Philadelphia. This is a mostly flat ride that parallels the Schuylkill River, passing through Norristown, Conshohocken and Fairmount Park.  After cycling through the Manayunk neighborhood, take Falls Bridge across the River and continue on Martin Luther King Blvd, which is closed to motorists on the weekend.  This scenic road will take you into/near Center City – connecting with urban bike paths in the Art Museum area. 44 miles roundtrip: https://ridewithgps.com/routes/28076781
