WMNBikePGH Hill Climbing Group Bike Ride

April 10 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Join BikePGH’s Women and Non-Binary Program for another no-drop bike ride! This challenging route is for folks who have experience climbing large hills and doing long, fast downhills.

? Date: Wednesday, April 10th, 2024
? Time: Meet at 6pm, pedal at 6:15pm. Ride should end around 8pm.
? Start & End Location: Allegheny Commons Park (near the foundation at the corner of East North & Cedar Ave)
? RIDE DETAILS: 15.4 miles with 985 feet of climbing *our most challenging ride of the year*

This challenging route starts on the Northside and climbs into Riverview Park. We’ll take a break at the observatory and then continue climbing on Perrysville Road, and Jacks Run Road, then start our long descent back to Allegheny Commons Park.

****This is NOT a route for folks who don’t have experience climbing larger hills or doing long, fast downhills.****

? Ride Route: https://ridewithgps.com/routes/45878534

? Ride pace: 8-10 mph. This is a no-drop ride: No one will be left behind, and we will frequently regroup. There will be a ride leader, sweep, and marshals to ensure the group stays together and is safe.

? Requirements: Be sure to do a bike safety check before heading out with the ABC Quick Check (bikepgh.org/2019/02/13/video-how-to-do-an-abc-quick-check/)

? Rides will happen rain, snow, or shine! Lightning / thunder / blizzard or other extreme weather will result in the ride being canceled.

If you’ve been waiting for the chance to get active on two wheels with a group of friendly and welcoming cyclists, these rides are the ticket for you. BikePGH’s Women and Non-Binary Program is inclusive of trans and cis women, intersex people, non-binary, genderqueer, agender and gender variant folks, as well as those whose gender identity falls outside of the dominant conceptions of gender. The program encourages conversation and spaces to come together over biking, advocacy and related topics while increasing the representation of people who have historically marginalized gender identities.

We aim to create a safer space where people can speak and move freely expressing themselves authentically without added fear of microaggressions and discrimination due to gender and expression. By opening the discussion about our lived experiences and challenges, we can assess how to better provide support and resources to ride bikes and increase mobility in Pittsburgh.
