On September 27th, MedCycle was happy to be a contributing sponsor to the Highland Park All-Wheel Sports Rodeo. This community event helped kids 6 and up learn about wheeled human-powered vehicles and MedCycle was happy to provide assistance at the event! The event included bicycle safety, repair, maintenance, rules of the road, and other fun aspects of safe bike riding. Staff talked also about helmet fit and proper bike sizing. Thanks to everyone who came out!
MedCycle helped with EMS support for the 2017 Atlantic City Ironman race on Sunday, September 17, 2017. In addition to general patrol and assistance throughout the day, we were so inspired to be able to shadow Harvey as he raced his final miles. Harvey inspired everyone he met that day, and this photo shows him at the finish with race organizer Steve from DelMo Sports!
MedCycle and other bike agencies joined together in support of standby EMS services at the Atlantic City Airshow in August. The team worked alongside Pennsauken EMS bike team patrolling the boardwalk area before and during the show, including the practice day. It was a fun time!
In June, MedCycle was on-hand providing EMS support at the 2017 'Escape the Cape' triathlon in Cape May, New Jersey. The event, ranked as one of the top triathlons in the entire Mid-Atlantic region, begins with participants jumping from one of the Cape May-Lewis ferry boats into the Delaware Bay for the swim portion! MedCycle staffers worked the bikes on the land portion of the event.
In May, MedCycle provided services for the sixth annual John Marshall All-Wheeled Sports Rodeo!
