Our Story: Make a stranger smile
The PMA bike ride was started in Philadelphia, PA on June 24th, 2016. PMA stands for positive mental attitude and that is what we wish to spread. We deliver smiles and pizza to our hungry brothers and sisters on the streets. Now an official non-profit, we are dreaming big and looking to expand our ride in Philadelphia and beyond!
But what is it exactly?
The PMA Bike Ride is a positive pizza party and community bike ride held on the last Saturday of every month. Recently, rides have become a double feature: we spread PMA around Kensington neighborhood in the afternoon followed by a Center City ride in the evening. (SINCE THIS WAS WRITTEN WE ADDED A PMABIKERIDE EVENT THE FIRST SUNDAY OF THE MONTH, WEST PHILLY AND SOUTH PHILLY)
How does the PMA Bike Ride work?
Check out answers to some Frequently Asked Questions below:
1) What motivated you to start the PMA Bike Ride?
I have always had a giving heart. I am a bike courier so I see so many people on the street that are hungry and downcast. With so many negative things going on, I believe we need to do everything we can to create positivity. I do wish to stress that The PMA Bike Ride is not about me or any one person. We are working to create something much bigger than ourselves.
2) What has been your favorite part about the ride?
I love seeing people's day made by our act of kindness. I love watching the shocked reactions of passersby. I love seeing new people come out to join the party and help create positivity. Making people smile fuels our positivity.
3) What are your future plans for the ride?
From March 14th - March 20th we will be doing a week-long PMA Bike Ride every day at 6 pm. EVERY DAY! Come out and join us whenever you can. We'd love to see your smiling faces.
We wish to duplicate our positive pizza party that originated in Philly and set up PMA Bike Rides across the country. Why not bring a PMA Bike Ride to every city across the U.S.?
We are also currently saving up money to buy a bike camper in order to complete a cross-country PMA Bike Ride. In preparation for our cross country tour, we will also be taking some mini east coast PMA Bike Ride tours. But before we do, we would like The PMA Bike Ride to be much bigger in Philly. In fact, we would love to bring the PMA Bike Ride to every neighborhood in Philadelphia.
4) How can people help or get involved?
Come out to The PMA Bike Ride which is the last Saturday of every month. All are welcome! (SINCE THIS WAS WRITTEN WE ADDED TWO PMABIKERIDE EVENTS THE FIRST SUNDAY OF THE MONTH AS WELL)
Share our event. The more people involved the better!
