Save Philly, You Can Help

"unless a $500,000 gap can be closed in the next several days, the race will be canceled."

Philly is a favorite of many -- both cyclists and fans alike -- but the troubled economy this year has put the threat of cancellation on its back. Sponsorship dollars have dropped $250k and the city has decided to charge the race $250k for police services.

Unlike other sports, we get to enjoy the beauty of our sport without tickets and expensive hot dog vendors, which makes all the more difficult for race promoters to cover the costs of creating temporary venues for races to occur. You can do your part to Embrace the Race by purchasing stickers and posters at either $5 or $10 a piece. Help keep our sport alive and well in this troubled time.
