WMNBikePGH Ice Cream Group Bike Ride

May 23 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Join BikePGH’s Women and Non-Binary Program for another no-drop bike ride, this time, with free ice cream! ?

Date: Thursday, May 23, 2024

Time: Meet at 6pm, pedal at 6:15pm. Ride should end ~8pm.

Start & End Location: Arsenal Park in Lawrenceville (on the 39th Street side of the park)

RIDE DETAILS: It’s our annual ice cream ride! 6.4 miles and almost completely flat. This beginner-friendly ride will take a direct route from Lawrenceville to Market Square, where we’ll take a break for ice cream (from Millies and purchased for you by BikePGH). Once we’ve finished enjoying our ice cream, we’ll head back to Arsenal Park in Lawrenceville.

Ride Route: https://ridewithgps.com/routes/45487209

Ride Pace: We ride at a pace of 8-10 miles per hour. This is a no-drop ride, meaning 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 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.
