Philly Cycling Classic Bike Race Takes Shorter Route

Posted: Updated:
PHILADELPHIA -

The race that almost didn't happen went off without a hitch this weekend.

Thanks to a city pulling together, the Philly Cycling Classic rolled out Sunday.

Cyclists lined up at the Manayunk Wall for a slightly different race than in years past.

Even though the course was 12 miles shorter, the important thing is the tradition continued.

And there was a new tradition: For the first time, the women were awarded the same prize as men, $5,000!

Kiel Reijen got first place for the men, and Evelyn Stevens took home top prize for the women.

Congratulations to everybody who competed!
