Meet Your New Best Friend, the “Urban Biking Companion”

Our classic Bike Commuter 101 Guide gets Updated

UBC CoverAre you looking for a friend to help you learn how to ride a bike in the city?

Perhaps you’ve been riding all summer, and now you need someone to help you prepare for the Winter?

Maybe you’re a veteran commuter, and could use a reminder about riding safe and being seen because we’re all vulnerable to making routines of our daily habits – even ones as awesome as riding a bike to work. Yeah, you’ve heard it all before, but it might be time to hit refresh on your mind. Who knows, the companion may even teach you a thing or two. Like any cherished companion at the very least BikePGH’s Urban Biking Companion encourages you to think about your ride and make active decisions.

So, feel lonely no longer! Just in time for the holidays, BikePGH is releasing our new Urban Biking Companion for you to cozy-up with in your favorite fireside spot, filled with 32-pages of warm, welcoming bike know-how. It’s our way of saying enjoy the holidays. Our friends at the City of Pittsburgh, Highmark, and the Pittsburgh Downtown Partnership have joined BikePGH in bringing it to you and all your loved ones as our gift to you.

The new Companion is full of tips and suggestions on how to stay safe, comfortable and legal while riding on city streets, including:

  • Guide to picking the right type & size bike
  • Suggestions for helpful accessories
  • Adjustments to your bike for increased comfort
  • Strategies for riding safely
  • Tips for planning a route for your commute
  • Selecting clothing for “bad” weather
  • Current City/State laws and statues
  • and MUCH more!

How many times have you been stuck in traffic, on some Pittsburgh roadway, and thought, “…I can’t wait to do this again”?

Well, 20,000 copies of the Companion’s previous version have helped countless numbers of people fall in love with commuting by bike.  You, or someone dear to you, could be the next one by finding the wise companionship of BikePGH’s brand-new Urban Biking Companion! Does the expression “stocking stuffer” come to mind?

When it’s the thought that really counts, the Urban Biking Companion could prove to be your friend in more ways than one.

Visit local bike shops or email info@bikepgh.org to find out how you can get your free copy.
