The Philadelphia Bike Expo was held in the Pennsylvania Convention Center at 11th and Arch streets this past weekend. Bike enthusiasts from the Philadelphia region gathered for the two-day event, which featured cycling vendors from all over the country. 

Some of these vendors included Schwinn, Raleigh USA and Winter Bicycles, as well as other companies like Green Mountain Energy, a renewable energy business, and clubs like the Bicycle Coalition of Greater Philadelphia.

Danielle Chmelewski, an ambassador for Green Mountain Energy, talked to bicycle enthusiasts about switching their power to the renewable energy company at the event.

“I think the whole idea [is] you reduce your carbon emissions by cycling and biking,” she said.” And we’re kind of doing the same thing in the sense that it’s a way to keep our environment clearer.”
