Wall
Bobby and I did not go to Philadelphia because no sponsor stepped forward. The City brass are hoping to restart the pro race in 2018.
Bobby and I went to the Philly Pro race on June 5, 2016. The start and finish was on The Wall.
We visited the Fuji concession, got fed & watered, scored a T, each,
(I got five!); missed Karen; saw some of Bobby's friends.
For me, the highlight, was getting in and out of Philly; the directions were provided by Dave, one of Bobby's many friends. We parked one block over from Lyceum; we saw an SUV with NJ plates pull out. We grabbed that spot.(lucky dog!) Dave's directions were spot on!
The Escape From Philadelphia, thanks to Dave, was perfect!

Bobby and I went to the Philly Pro race on June 7, 2015. The start and finish was on The Wall.
We visited the Fuji concession, got fed & watered, scored a T, each,
(I got two!); missed Karen; saw some of Bobby's friends.
For me, the highlight, was getting in and out of Philly; the arrival was perfect, except a cop had the ramp blocked that we needed to take. So we wandered around for 45 minutes and ended parking on Ridge Avenue. (lucky dog!) The Escape From Philadelphia started with where we were parked, which was perfect for our escape!

We visited the Fuji concession, got fed & watered, scored a T, each, and some other favors; greeted Karen, and some of Bobby's friends.
For me, the highlight, was getting in and out of Philly, given the new arrangements. the Escape From Philadelphia, was again perfect!

Bobby and I went to the Philly Pro race on June 3, 2012.
A pro photographer, Jeffrey, went with us; another friend of Bobby's, Paul, did the driving.
We didn't have VIP tickets, sooo, Bobby begged a ride up to the Wall for us. We visited the Fuji concession, got fed & watered, scored a T, each, and some other favors; greeted Karen, another of Bobby's friends. The TD folks were handing out all sorts of favors; not pictured were some "bang sticks". For me, the highlight, the Escape From Philadelphia, was again perfect!

Bobby invited me to go with him to the Philly Pro race on June 7, 2009. We scored a T-shirt, a tank-top (for Karen), a cow bell, a stuff bag and some memories. We learned how to easily get out of the City next year. With so many streets blocked for the race, driving is problematic.
The escape from Philadelphia is getting better.

Bobby invited me to go with him to the Philly Pro race on June 11, 2006. We took a couple of VIP trips to the Manayunk Wall.
There was a Fuji concession, where Bobby knew someone (he always knows someone) that allowed us inside, for a bar-b-que sandwitch.
Saw the watering hole and visited the VIP concession.
We took a motorcycle ride, trailing the riders around the course - what a neat thing. Saw the finish from the grandstand.
