R.E.Load Bags  💥Bomb-Proof Bags Made In Philly 🏠Made Entirely In-House ✂️One Bag At A Time From Start-To-Finish 🚴🏿Since 1998

Just because the annual Philadelphia Cycling Classic is cancelled doesn't mean we can't all meet up at Lemon Hill in a few weeks! To us, the race weekend was always much more about getting together and seeing old friends anyway. This is being spearheaded by Big Brad and the Stop Not Playing DJ crew, who have been securing the primo spot and bringing out tents and sound systems for as long as we can remember. Come join us for a family reunion! Brad, Lex, Argo, Big Daddy Blake, and more will be on the decks, food will be on the grills, and we'll have beer on tap! Be sure and bring stuff to sell and trade, as we'll be hosting a bike swap as well. Space is free, just bring a blanket or something to spread gear out on. #stopnotplaying

We're still processing the events of the past weekend, which started so beautifully with the gathering of riders for our Fun Ride event, but took a horrific turn mere hours later when a member of our messenger community passed after being struck by an SUV - while in the bike lane, wearing lights and a helmet - on Spring Garden street, while delivering food for Caviar. Pablo was 34 years old. While we didn't have the pleasure of knowing Pablo, we do know he was universally loved by people we in turn love and respect. By all accounts, he was a generous, kind, and amazing human being, and our world is worse off without him.

Today is the Ride of Silence here in Philadelphia. We ride together to honor those who have fallen before us, and to spread the message of safe, shared roads for all cyclists. The ride meets at the Art Museum at 6:45pm, rain or shine.

Pablo's family has started a Go Fund Me to help cover funeral expenses and travel costs for loved ones. The link is in our bio; please donate if you can. Every bit helps.

These are the instagram bonus spots. Take a pic there, then present it at the corresponding checkpoint for bonus points!

Yo! Welcome! Stay tuned to our STORY page for updates during the race and for what checkpoints are open or closed.

@lorrainebar19130 hooked up a bunch of prizes for our Maypril Fools Fun Ride tomorrow! Including two tickets to #punkindrublic, courtesy of Lorraine's and @stonebrewing ! They're also hosting the after party, which is sweet because they have a huge back yard, picnic tables, collections of beers both cheap and fancy, and some of the best bartenders in the city! #mayprilfoolsfunride #aprilfoolsfunride #points

@cyclesphl is very concerned that you will be oh so slow getting around Philadelphia during tomorrow's Maypril Fools Fun Ride! It MUST be your bike, so DFL tomorrow will receive a free tune-up! Probably a loose screw behind the handlebars 😂 #mayprilfoolsfunride #aprilfoolsfunride #points

Here it is y'all: the 2018 Maypril Fools Fun Ride champions prize bag! The right combination of routing, speed, persistence, positive attitude, and plain old luck could net you this custom Cobra Flight Pack, designed and stitched by @gerikforston . We've also got a lot of extra R.E.Load goodies, including hip packs, stem bags, and more for those who don't finish quite at the top. Get registered! See you Saturday. #mayprilfoolsfunride #aprilfoolsfunride #points #appliquemasters #keepitcolorful

Hey! Check out these awesome coozies, designed by our very own @gerikforston ! Have you registered yet for the Maypril Fools Fun Ride this Saturday? If yes, then you will be getting one of these free at the start of the event (along with a bunch of other goodies)! Not from Philly/not a sports fan? Too bad, now you're an Eagles fan. #mayprilfoolsfunride #aprilfoolsfunride #points #flyeaglesfly #yourcitydidntwin

Big up to @bortspins for once again sponsoring our Maypril Fools Fun Ride! They've got tons snapbacks, five panels, tees, patches, and of course, pins to check out! If you're lucky you may just win a few items this Saturday! Pre-registration is still open, so go ahead and click the link in our bio to sign up and secure a bunch of free event swag! #mayprilfoolsfunride #aprilfoolsfunride #points

This is our official call-out for volunteer/checkpoint help this Saturday (may 12th) during our Maypril Fools Fun Ride! Do you like to mess with people? Do you like free stuff? Would you savor the anxious face of one of our riders as they wait for you to judge them on their efforts at a ridiculous task? Then this could be for you! All we ask is that you're available from roughly 1-5 on Saturday! In return you'll get a full event swag package including custom patch, coozies, party cup, sunglasses, and more! If you're interested, please message us, or just email reloadeast(at)reloadbags(dot)com! #mayprilfoolsfunride #aprilfoolsfunride #points 📷: @demoncatslookbook

A big "thank you!" goes out to @abus_locks for once again sponsoring our Maypril Fools Fun Ride! Abus actually sponsors pretty much every messenger event under the sun, and they deserve props for their continual support of our community. Not to mention they are the lock of choice for us here at R.E.Load. Up for grabs next Saturday, May 12th, are a grip of their five panel hats, a few of their rolltop bags, and of course a couple of bulletproof mini locks. Registration is still open, go check the link in our bio to sign up and guarantee yourself some free party goods! #mayprilfoolsfunride #aprilfoolsfunride #points
