The Tour de Philly was established in 2004 by avid runner and cycle enthusiast Thomas McCabe. Mr. McCabe had a vision for a bar crawl - friends and co-workers enjoying the bars of one of the greatest cities on the planet.

After the 2005 TDP, McCabe stepped down as event organizer leaving planning duties to Joey Lombardi. Under Lombardi's care, the TDP has taken on different themes in different sections of the city. In recent years, the focus has been brought back to Center City.

The ongoing mission of the event is to bring together co-workers and friends in the Philadelphia area in a non-formal setting. If you plan on attending future TDP events, please remember to leave your work behind and to keep the stories out of the office.
