Local leaders are searching for a solution to save a Philadelphia tradition and what has become a big summer draw for Manayunk: championship cycling.

Members of the Manayunk Development Corporation, Congressman Robert Brady and bike race officials met for the first time Friday morning.

The city's cycling championship, featuring the famed "Manayunk Wall," announced it would take a break this year, after losing its title sponsor.

The group hopes to find a resolution to salvage the 28-year-old institution in 2013.
