🚲 Date: Tuesday, June 18, 2024

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

🚲 Start & End Location: Schenley Plaza Garden (Oakland — near the Forbes Ave bike lane)

🚲 Ride Details: 9.8 mile loop with 430 feet of climbing. This route will head to Highland Park and back through Pittsburgh’s East End.

🚲 Ride Route: https://ridewithgps.com/routes/45487508

🚲 Ride Pace: We ride at a pace of 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 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.
