The state's newest designated scenic byway, Route 202, is the setting for our Pedaling on the Parkway community bike ride on Saturday, April 26 from 9:00 - 11:30am.  

In conjuction with the Montgomery County Dept of Public Health, advanced and family riders will convene at the Route 202/309 Park N Ride lot in Montgomeryville on this beautiful stretch of road through Doylestown to raise awareness of biking in the North Penn region.  There will be a 6-mile route and a more challenging 15-mile route that morning.  Proceeds benefit the PTMA's free bike share programs in Hatfield Borough, the Upper Perk Valley, the Peter Becker Community and, coming this spring, to Ambler Borough.

Registration is $20 per adult, $10 for children under age 11 or a Family Pass with 2 adults/12 children for $50.  The first 50 riders will receive a free event T-shirt with all children receiving an event wristband!  Contact: 215-699-2733 or info@ptma-mc.org.

03/05/14 -- FREE SEPTA TRAVEL TRAINING IN ABINGTON APRIL 17!

Is this your first time riding SEPTA?  Has it been years since you have been on a bus, trolley or train?  Do you want to hear more about the new fare payment system coming this summer? 

If so, please join us on Thursday, April 17 from 6:30-8:00pm for a free community travel training class.  SEPTA is seeing record ridership on its buses and trains as commuters and casual users avoid high gas prices, potholes and congested roads to take mass transit.  The travel training is an hour-long workshop that will feature an actual off-duty bus to practice boarding, mounting a bike or paying fare.  It's ideal for teens or seniors who want their independence!

The class will be held in the 2nd Floor Meeting Room at the Abington Township Municipal Building, 1176 Old York Road.  Walk-ins welcome but RSVP preferred: info@ptma-mc.org or 215-699-1801.  Refreshments served.

 

 

02/20/2014 -- SAY 'I LOVE YOU' WITH A BIKE HELMET!

That's right!  During our "I Love You & Your Brain, Too!" bicycle safety awareness promotion, you can purchase a sturdy child-or-adult sized helmet in an array of eye-catching colors for only $13.  Or, select your helmet and we will wrap it in a festive bag and hand deliver it all for only $18.   

Studies show that using a bike helmet increases one's chances dramatically of surviving potentially fatal head injuries.  In fact, they are required for children ages 12 and under in Pennsylvania. 

Proceeds from "I Love You & Your Brain, Too" benefit the TMA's free bike share programs in the Upper Perk Valley, Hatfield Borough and a new location in Ambler in Spring 2014.  To select your loved one's new helmet, please contact The Partnership TMA at 215-699-2733 or info@ptma-mc.org
