About 100 skateboarders sprinted from Fairmount to South Philadelphia Saturday as part of an informal race known as a "bomb. " The skateboarders raced from Lemon Hill along Boathouse Row, to the Benjamin Franklin Parkway and onto South Broad Street. Skaters traveled from as far away as Pittsburgh, New York and Virginia to attend the event. A group of local skateboard enthusiasts organized the competition for racers who use longboard skateboards, which are longer, wider and more expensive than standard models.

ON SUNDAY, the city will once again host a professional bike race, welcoming pro cyclists from around the world for the Parx Casino Philly Cycling Classic. After 28 years, the Philadelphia International Cycling Championship was canceled for 2013 due to lack of sponsors and funding. It was the longest-running road bike race in the United States. To ensure that cycling would take place this year, Parx Casino stepped up and pledged $500,000 over the next 2 years, and rounded up other sponsors such as New Penn Financial, Sunoco, Philadelphia Federal Credit Union, Fuji Bikes, Philadelphia Energy Solutions and Bicycling Magazine to make the new event possible.

The island across from Boathouse Row had no name, and neither did the dog. At its lower end, you could jump across to the island, which was formed from sediment brought down the Schuylkill. There was nothing but wildness over there, trees and weeds and that dog. Al Wachlin is a fixture on Boathouse Row, a former head of the Schuylkill Navy. Wachlin kept seeing this dog with distinctive black-and-white markings on the island across from his Fairmount Rowing Association boathouse. Wachlin began leaving food over there.

This weekend's traffic hotspots include South Philadelphia this evening, Kelly Drive on Saturday, and the route of Sunday's bike race, from Logan Square to Kelly Drive to Manayunk. Shore-goers have two reasons to get an early start today. The Phillies take on the Florida Marlin at 7:05 p.m. at Citizens Bank Park, which could jam major roads near the sports complex. Also, showers and thunderstorms are in the forecast, with heavy rain more likely after about 9 p.m. To check the forecast, go to Philly.com's weather page . On Saturday, from 5 a.m. to 8 p.m., traffic will be detoured away from Kelly Drive because of the Independence Dragon Boat Regatta.

For Michel Zanoli and the rest of the members of Team Tulip, there was a lot more riding on yesterday's CoreStates U.S. Pro Cycling Championship than just the $25,000 winner's share of the prize money. A professional cycling team needs a sponsor, and Team Tulip arrived at the CoreStates starting line on Benjamin Franklin Parkway all too aware that they were precariously close to losing their's. Team Tulip's sugar daddy is a Belgian computer company whose one and only sponsorship stipulation is that the team qualify for next month's Super Bowl of cycling, the Tour de France.

It was almost CoreStates race week, and Bill O'Brien was getting ready to do what he has done every June for the last 10 years: set up O'Brien's Watering Hole near the top of "The Wall. " It isn't a complicated device, and it's not worth much. Just four shower heads on a piece of pipe stored in the alley. But when O'Brien went to get it, it was gone. Someone had stolen O'Brien's Watering Hole. On any other day of the year, O'Brien's Watering Hole is really just O'Brien's rowhome on Levering Street.

SURROUNDED BY FAMILY in her Plymouth Meeting living room, Dara Arline puffed on a Newport and talked about the coping skills she wishes she had. "I think about him at least 20, 30 times a day because he was such a gentle spirit," she said. "None of my children have ever been in a fistfight. He was never suspended from school. . . . " That gentle spirit - her oldest child, Shakoor Arline - died in the most violent way, in a lurid and still-unsolved slaying early last Nov. 6. That's when someone pumped a barrage of bullets into him and Lisa Smith, the woman he was with, in an SUV parked near Lemon Hill Mansion in Fairmount Park.

Authorities searching for clues in Friday's double slaying near Lemon Hill Mansion are investigating the case as a "crime of passion," committed when someone found the victims having sex in the backseat of an SUV and shot them to death. Police have identified Shakoor Arline, 25, and Lisa Smith, 32, as the victims found in a Toyota Sequoia on Lemon Hill Drive in Fairmount Park on Friday afternoon.

Canadian Bruno Langlois of Team 5-Hour Energy raised his arms in victory as he crossed the finish line ahead of the pack after the ninth lap of the men's portion of the Parx Casino Philly Cycling Classic. The only problem for Langlois was that Sunday's race was 10 laps long. On that 10th lap was where Kiel Reijnen and Team UnitedHealthcare made their move. Team UnitedHealthcare had a strong presence near the front of the peloton, allowing it to set Reijnen free for his second consecutive first-place finish in the race in 4 hours, 35 minutes, 34 seconds.

KIEL REIJNEN and Evelyn Stevens each came into the Parx Casino Philly Cycling Classic with targets on their back. This time, as defending champions, the proverbial target took a tangible form. They both wore the No. 1 on their backs as they whizzed through the streets of Manayunk and Lemon Hill. The number they wore on their jerseys turned into the position they both finished. Both Reijnen and Stevens were able to repeat as champions yesterday afternoon. The win was a special gift for Reijnen, a resident of Boulder, Colo., who turned 28 yesterday.
