Reports are sketchy. There is a youtube video that clearly shows police fencing protesters in by holding their bicycles in front of them. 

Twitter reports using the #NatGat hashtag report that a number of livefeed people have also been arrested. Tweets also suggest that the marchers were charged with obstructing a highway. 

Dustin Slaughter, part of the #Natgat media team and a freelance journalist told Opednews,

There are 28 Confirmed arrests. They will be released in next 3-4 hours. 
No charges yet, but one civil affairs officers said it might be obstructing a highway. 
They want to send a message to the people not to interfere with the July 4th cash cow-- tourist volume for the next three days. The city is skittish about marchers disrupting. 
Two of the livestreamers were arrested, one from Portland and one from Philly. There is speculation that they may start going after livestreamers. 
Using bicycles to control marchers, put up blockades and as weapons sometimes is the MO of the Philadelphia police.
