About PedalPGH 2015
On Saturday, August 30, BikePGH will host the year’s largest bike ride, PedalPGH, which consists of three courses of varying difficulty. Each bike tour will begin and end at the South Shore Riverfront Park–start times depend on the course you choose. All proceeds from the event will benefit BikePGH’s mission to create safer streets for cyclists and pedestrians.
PedalPGH showcases Pittsburgh as a bicycle-friendly city and gives people of all ages and experience levels a new view of the parks, neighborhoods, bridges and landmarks that make Pittsburgh unique. PedalPGH is the region’s leading bicycle event, bringing together families, athletes, community leaders and advocates for bicycle transportation.
Bikers have their choice of three fully marked courses:
- Family Ride: 5 to 12-mile beginner ride
- Highmark City Tour: 25-mile intermediate ride
- PJ Dick, Trumbull and Lindy Paving Metric Company: 62-mile expert ride
There is still time for Regular Registration and Late Registration. You can also register on site the day of PedalPGH. The costs of each option are as follows:

Bike Pittsburgh was established in 2002 to make the City of Pittsburgh more safe, accessible, and friendly to bicycle transportation and walking by connecting “professional, commercial, recreational, residential, and cultural destinations.”
Bikeways and walkways are being designed to make biking and walking easy, convenient, and fun ways of navigating the city. Ultimately, bikeways will be protected from street traffic and walkways will provide a sense of security for all who utilize them.
BikePGH believes biking and walking are essential to bringing more people visitors and long-term residents to the city. The organization’s ultimate goal is to help Pittsburgh achieve gold status as a Bicycle Friendly Community.
