On a 60 degree November day, members of the Tenth Grade Health class took part in the first ever 16 mile “Bicycle Tour de Fairmount”. Beginning at the Northwestern Avenue end of Fairmount Park’s Wissahickon Trail, our band of bikers traveled its full length down to the intersection with Lincoln Drive. A quick right turn, and two miles later, the group arrived at the junction of Ridge Avenue and Kelly Drive. Their journey continued on Kelly along the picturesque Schuylkill river all the way down to the Philadelphia Museum of Art. Dismounting for stair laps, chocolate milk and a Cliff Bar, everyone welcomed a little time out of the saddle. The final stage of the tour was a return ride along the river back to the Falls Bridge. We’re thankful for the safe and enjoyable trip had by all.
