Pittsburgh Pedals

It’s no coincidence the amount of bicyclists on the road have increased, it is an inexpensive (if you account for maintenance), quick and sustainable method of getting around after all. A two mile commute to work can easily be achieved in about ten minutes. Bike Pittsburgh, an advocacy group committed to the interest of Pittsburgh bicycle safety and awareness, is kicking off its annual BikeFest this Friday. BikeFest runs through July 6 and highlights Pittsburgh’s bike resources as well as raising awareness of biking as a safe and environmentally friendly means of transportation. Whether you’re a regular bike commuter or pedal on the weekends, the library has the resources you’ll need.
