I decided to do a map about biking around where I live in West Philadelphia. Despite having plenty of options for public transportation in University City, biking may be the easiest way to get around. The official boundaries of University City are, like many neighborhoods in Philadelphia, a little hazy. I decided to use the Schuylkill River as a boundary on the east, go as far west as 43rd Street, and as far north as Spring Garden to define the neighborhood. I also included bike shops, just in case you want to stop in for some supplies.

Happy Biking!
