Classic Route Directions (2019) 

Starting Line

Our starting line takes place outside of the Philadelphia Police headquarters on Race Street spanning from 6th Street to 8th Street. This is a great place for riders to meet up with their teams, catch up with friends, and take photos with our event banner and iconic "A Friend" statue, which shows an officer holding a child.


Starting Line Parking

In Philadelphia, there is metered street parking or there are plenty of lots where you can pay for parking. Most, but not all, street parking is free on Sunday. Please read all signs where you park, as some streets are not free and have time limits.
